A former architect has designed and built his own vintage-style shepherd’s hut.

Kit Lloyd Webb is now looking forward to welcoming holidaymakers to Lavender Hut at Stamfordham.

The shepherd's hut.

The shepherd's hut.

He built his first hut last year, after a 25-year career running a building design company, and was so pleased with the result, he built a second.

The hut is constructed using all local materials, on a traditional cast iron wheeled chassis. It has a solid oak floor, wriggly tin roof and timer-panelled internal walls.

The interior is a mix of vintage style with some antique pieces and specially-designed copper fittings. There is also a wood burning stove.

Lavender Hut is available to rent through www.cottages.com
