About us

Welcome to Packa Shack

I’m Allie Cherry, and I came up with the idea of the Shack after a particularly cold surf at Belhaven Bay near Edinburgh.

I was getting changed out of my wetsuit at the back of my car, getting some shelter from the tailgate, when I had my eureka moment and thought, ‘I could add walls to that’ so went home got my mum’s old sewing machine out and made the first one on the kitchen table.

Having made the first Shack for my own use, people started to ask me when I got it, so I decided I shouldn’t keep it to myself, and set up the business in 2010, and have been selling on-line and at events ever since.

The Shack helps make your escape from the norm into a much more enjoyable experience by offering you freedom, comfort, privacy and shelter where ever you and your vehicle can get to.

Packa Shack is based in Edinburgh; the Shacks are made in Cumbria.
