At the end of July, the ownership and operation of Tithe Barn Shepherd Huts passed over to Rob and Di Miller. The family team also owns and operates The Really Interesting Tent Company, which has been producing top quality yurts since 2004.
“Back in 2016, Di and I started looking to acquire or establish a business that we could really enjoy working on together,” says Rob. “In searching businesses for sale I came across The Really Interesting Tent Company and, after viewing and various discussions, we were very happy to officially take it over. Many of our glamping customers also operated shepherd huts as part of their offering and by chance we learnt that the founding owners of Tithe Barn were looking to retire. To cut a long story short we started a dialogue and completed the acquisition at the end of July.
“Both companies complement each other well, not only serving the same customer base in the main but also utilising our workshop facilities in East Yorkshire and team of skilled artisans who build the frames for the yurts.
“It’s been a very busy first six weeks but rewarding as we meet new customers and, in a number of instances, have supplied them with both a shepherds hut kit and a yurt. www.shepherd-huts.com
