All the reasons why couples and wedding guests love shepherd huts!

Going against the grain and wedding tradition is one thing many marrying couples choose to do in their quest for a truly personalised big day. It’s a movement that has seen more and more couples searching for quirkier, one-of-a-kind wedding venues, and unique night before and wedding night accommodation to match.

No longer are couples happy with a bog-standard room conveniently positioned above the place they’ll say “I do” and celebrate with their loved ones. And that is exactly why our wedding shepherd huts have become such popular fixtures amongst venues looking to diversify their offering.

In this blog post, we share why our shepherd huts should be the crowning glory of your on-site accommodation, and why couples and their wedding guests will thank you for it!

Offer the ultimate haven for couples and guests

Whether you plan to offer a wedding shepherd hut as a quirky honeymoon suite, a calming haven for brides and bridesmaids to enjoy the morning of or night before the big event, or an extra special wedding night accommodation option for guests, it’ll no doubt deliver a truly memorable experience.

Nestled in a leafy part of the grounds of your venue, your luxurious Greendown hut will provide a charming, unique and private retreat for every individual, and an experience that many are keen to tick off their own travel bucket lists.

Experience nature at its most immersive

Tucked away from the chaos of urban life, your wedding shepherd huts will allow both couples and their guests to truly immerse themselves in the raw beauty of nature, and it’ll have a suitably calming effect for nervous brides and grooms preparing for the biggest and best day of their lives.

Shepherd huts are huge on the tourist scene for this very reason, giving guests the opportunity to reconnect with the natural world and savour its serenity. We’re sure your couples and guests will agree that there’s something undeniably magical about the cosy ambience of a shepherd hut.

Let the uniqueness of your accommodation shine

In a world saturated with cookie-cutter hotels and generic lodgings, shepherd huts offer a much-needed breath of fresh air.

Take Greendown’s hut range as an example – each design boasts its own distinct character and charm, reflecting the craftsmanship and creativity of our incredibly talented team. With their snug interiors, welcoming fixtures and fittings, and luxurious extra touches, every corner exudes comfort and nostalgia.

Whether your guests spend their time curled up by the crackling fire with a good book or indulging in a spot of stargazing from the step of their hut, they’re certain to be transported to their own personal paradise.

All these perks can be enjoyed without disrupting your wider business too, with shepherd huts able to be added to your site easily and conveniently. If you intend to rent out your shepherd hut for more than 28 days per calendar year to generate income however, you will require full planning permission or an exemption.

Go back to basics – but not as you know it

Our wedding shepherd huts have the versatility to appeal to a great range of people, not just those looking to embrace a unique, rustic experience.

Those craving an off-grid adventure, even just for one night, will find that shepherd huts provide unrivalled authenticity. With no distractions, couples and their wedding guests have the chance to unplug from technology and embrace the present moment. Instead of scrolling on screens, they can spend their stay relishing life’s simple pleasures.

But, while offering a simpler stay, our huts are far from basic. They provide all the facilities and finishing touches to enjoy the grounds of your wedding venue their way, providing escapism with plenty of luxury.

Crafted from sustainable materials and designed to minimise their carbon footprint, the eco-friendliness of a hut retreat allows for guilt-free indulgence, which is certain to be appreciated by the more conscious guest.

Embrace romance like never before

When it comes to romance, the average wedding sets pretty high standards. Couples and guests can start, continue or finish that romantic journey with a stay in one of your wedding shepherd huts. With their intimate settings and secluded locations, shepherd huts are tailormade for romantic getaways. Post-wedding, newly married couples can find solace in the privacy and romance of these enchanting hideaways. In fact, it is the perfect way to kick-start married life.
