Insuring your Holmes Hill Shepherds hut

Searching online for shepherds hut insurance there is an array of options to insure your hut, as it’s not so uncommon anymore. Meaning now you can purchase your perfect shepherds hut with knowledge that you’re hut is fully insured.

Certain insurers could cover the Shepherds hut like any other house out-building such as a greenhouses or annexes as part of the house insurance, so checking with your current insurance provider so just double check this. However if the Shepherds hut is separate to your home i.e. in a remote field or wood. Then it is likely you will need to seek out specialist insurance cover, which is not hard to come by.

Nowadays there are many specialist insurers who have started to branch out from insuring similar structures such as beach huts and glamping pods. Whilst there may be an increased premium which reflects the remoteness of the Shepherds hut, it is a price worth paying for the peace of mind that your special place is protected appropriately.

With a vast selection of air B&B and glamping sites now existing, insurance companies usually will have policies for both domestic and commercial use in place. A busy glamping shepherd’s hut would benefit from loss of earnings cover whilst the repairs are carried out. This means that if the hut is ever unfit to stay in and out of use for some time you are covered and will not lose money from the inactivity.

Fortunately for us a shepherd’s hut is a big thing to load up and move, and access is often not as straight forward as it seems so the theft of an entire shepherds hut is unlikely. There are some hidden ways that the steering can be locked up, which will help foil the efforts of a determined thief.

Various methods of increasing the security have been used over the years, such as chaining a hut down to a concrete pad, a motorbike lock works well for this as the U shape will slide through a wheel spoke and around the axle bracket. You could be asked by the insurance company how the hut is to be secured.

Alarm systems are a good option but usually require internet access however there are some that do not need to work off Wi-Fi but are slightly more expensive. A security camera, and a small warning sign to say a camera is in operation, is always a great deterrent.
