The Carriage Hall in Nottingham has launched a unique new bridal suite for its brides-to-be in

the form of a luxury double shepherd hut. Created by Blackdown Shepherd Huts from

Somerset, the double hut, named The Great Oak, this quirky bridal suite and two additional huts

are fitted out with all the necessities to create a luxurious and chic setting for brides and their



The Blackdown Shepherd Huts team were delighted to be asked by Jon Perkins from The

Carriage Hall to design and create the double hut. Will Vickery, director of Blackdown Shepherd

Huts, says: ‘We're always more than happy to get creative with our carpentry, and we do relish

a challenge. So, when The Carriage Hall asked for a double hut as a wedding bridal suite, with

one area as dressing room and suite, and the other as a luxury bathroom, the workshop team

set to it.'


The result was the stunning The Great Oak shepherd's hut, along with two sister huts, The

Willow and The Birch. Jon and David Perkins, a second generation family business established in

1982, are located at the Old Victorian Plumtree Railway station, and are delighted with the

arrival of this unique hut.


Jon says: ‘The shepherd huts add a little "boho chic" to Plumtree Station! They are nestled

amongst the tree line overlooking the South Nottingham Countryside. We wanted something

totally unique for Plumtree Station and the local area, and we were blown away when we saw

one being created at Blackdown.


‘The Great Oak Bridal Suite has a roll top bath, which was a must have luxury addition for the

bride to be to relax in. We have been eager to add some accommodation at The Carriage Hall

for a long time, and after considerable hunting and researching, we finally stumbled across

Blackdown Shepherd Huts. These really are the perfect combination of quality, quirkiness, and



The Blackdown shepherd huts at The Carriage Hall are in the style of modern vintage, with

additional creature comforts including espresso machines, individual wifi, and wireless

speakers. The bridal suite contains a generous double bed, a roll top bath, a dressing area, and

an outside terrace with bistro table and chairs.


The huts have already been showcased at a wedding fair and Jon says the response to them

has been overwhelming. ‘We're booking them out for weddings already. The huts are so

unusual, as well as cosy, comfortable and relaxed. Waking up to views over the fields, sipping

coffee on the little terrace feeling you're away from the daily grind - what can better than that

on your wedding day?'
