Swamp huts consist of a small square building made of spruce planks, with oak log pillars extending down to the ground. There is a small platform outside of the hut that could be an entrance; however, it is many blocks above the ground, and there are no stairs that go upwards to the hut. The roof of the swamp hut is made up of spruce wood stairs and spruce wood planks.
However, in Bedrock Edition, the cauldron generates with a random potion inside of it in random amounts. These potions include Swiftness, Slowness, Weakness, Healing, and Poison. Water Breathing, Fire Resistance, Night Vision, Harming, and Decay have a rare chance of being spawned, and rarely the cauldron may contain a splash potion. This is the only legitimate way to obtain potions of Decay, because the potion cannot be brewed.[Bedrock Edition only]
Additionally, in the 7×9×7 area that is the hut (this is the size of the roof and one block over the porch, from one level below the floor of the hut to two blocks above the roof) only witches can spawn, while all cats (from spawn eggs, breeding and commands without cat type set) always spawn as black.

- The "hut" part of a swamp hut generates on or above the surface, while the wood "pillars" extend down until they reach solid ground. This means that if part of a witch hut is at sea level and another part is on top of deep ground, such as a ravine, the pillars on the deep-ground side go all the way down to the ground.
- It is possible for swamp huts to generate on top of one another.
- Swamp huts are one of four generated structures that do not generate loot chests (the others are desert wells, fossils, and ocean monuments).
A swamp hut that generated over deep water.
A swamp hut where part of it generated on highland, and part of it above a deep cave.
