We have been making Shepherd Huts and other fine products since 1988. We have always sought to provide excellent craftsmanship whilst listening to our customers requirements. We have many happy customers, some of whose comments can be found below.

As an architect over 40 years I have worked alongside many builders over the years.  I chose Mike Dickinson in 2010 to refurbish my home in North Cornwall.  Mike worked incredibly hard and with his all round construction experience was very able to make suggestions and to wrestle every aspect of the project through to completion.

Mike is totally trustworthy and a pleasure to work with, no problem was unsurmountable and he successfully completed the project on time and within budget.  If further manpower was required he was able to supply suitable people.

I subsequently went on use Mike on another property in 2011 which was also a complete success. I have recommended him to friends who were likewise very happy with his work.   I would have no reservation in recommending him for any project.

We would highly recommend Mike’s work.    He has built an orangery,  filled in a swimming pool, completely re-designed and re-vamped our garden,  built a beautiful  patio with a surrounding wall and a beautiful oak arched door (hand-made by Mike)  and hand-made the railings to our own design.  These are just a few of the jobs he has done for us – there are many many more!   All of his work is of the highest standard and we can honestly say we can find no fault.   He is diligent, extremely hard-working and totally reliable.   And he has the ideas and the vision to see the end result and put forward his suggestions which we found so helpful.   The best value for our money we have ever found!     An absolute treasure if you are lucky enough to have his workmanship.

We were so pleased with the Shepherds Hut that Mike made for our caravan site that we asked him back to build a machinery store. As well as being competitively priced the quality of both products is unsurpassable. This is supported by excellent feedback from our customers who have enjoyed their stay in the Shepherds Hut. A highly skilled craftsman, Mike is hardworking and a pleasure to deal with. We would have no hesitation in recommending his work to others.

Our request to have a log style cabin built on a Shepherd hut chassis was not a problem and the cabin was built longer and wider than a standard Shepherd hut. Mike even used some materials  (windows and doors) that we provided! Working together we were able to achieve the end result we required and are delighted with the way it has turned out.

I am delighted with the gates you made and would recommend your work to others. Jo S.


We are very pleased with the entrance gate. It is exactly what we hoped for and can we have some business cards to hand out and keep for future reference. Mr & Mrs Wright


We asked mike to replace our existing oak gates on our property. The previous gates had stood for fifty years, these gates are bi folding 12ft wide. What he built was fantastic, exact replicas, he sourced the oak for us. Stripped the old gates of all it’s ironmongery cleaned and repainted them. He then refurnished and installed the new oak gates. Amazing job.

I would recommend mike to anyone. His craftsmanship is first class.

From our first meeting, we knew this was a company we could trust. Mike is a man of his word and his work is to be admired. Mike came highly recommended by a local building company for his high quality of work. Mike designed and built a galvanised steel stairway for us, he also replaced all our garden fencing. Indoors Mike designed and built a bespoke freestanding bookcase (to create our ‘wall of books’). We are delighted with his craftsmanship on each of these projects and we will not hesitate to use him again in the future. Peter and Caroline

The whole idea of a garden shed had been a complete headache on our steep hilly ground, in our windswept area until we met Mike who suggested we use the design he had used in his own garden, based on a Shepherd hut. From start to finish the project went without a hitch and was delivered in budget, on time with top rate craftsmanship. And all we had to do was provide the brise blocks. We highly recommend Dove Enterprises to create whatever you wish in your garden. Annabel Yates

I would like to say that we are absolutely delighted with our glass balcony and 32 metres of railings which Mike and his team manufactured and fitted for us.

Mike has made us a set of stunning, unique gates. The process was painless; some simple sketches from Mie followed our initial conversation- and then the finished article delivered/fitted within time. Our dream agates, perfectly realised.
