5 of the best log cabin getaways in Britain

Log Cabins, yurts and tree houses make excellent glamping accommodation and we’ve scoured the nation to come up with five of our favourite, secluded, log cabin getaways. Whether you’re searching for a romantic hideaway or an active family break, these unique buildings will make you yearn for a log cabin of your own, as well as giving you plenty of ideas about how to furnish it... 

1: Elsa Lodge

This gorgeous lodge is set right in the middle of the Cotswold countryside. Elsa Lodge comes with a hot tub and there’s a footbridge to your own private island with a beach and raised fire pit to keep you warm as the sun sets over the lake.

Although we don't think we’d ever want to leave, it would make a great base for exploring the surrounding local countryside. The cosy interior, combined with fantastic views over the water, are a winning combination. 

2: Living-Room Treehouse

No matter how old you are, sleeping in a tree house is a magical idea. Living-Room has nestled 6 well-spaced treehouse cabins high up in the canopy of the gorgeous Welsh mountains.

Not only are these treehouses great fun, they’re not lacking in creature comforts either. Located within easy walking distance of the sea and nature trails, these cosy, well-insulated retreats are sure to give you plenty of inspiration for designing your own log cabin!

3: Priory Bay Yurts

If you’re looking for a unique camping experience after the schools go back that doesn’t involve roughing it, a Priory Bay Yurt on the picturesque Isle of Wight is the perfect opportunity to get close to nature. Pitched in a magical setting above a private and sheltered beach, they make the ideal base from which to enjoy the island. 

4: Certhia Log Cabin

Head into the Scottish Highlands to enjoy a rather special stay in Certhia, a cosy and beautifully decorated log cabin that sits on a ridge, looking down the majestic Strathglass, towards Erchless castle. 

There’s nothing nicer than a relaxing sauna and a glass of wine in front of your wood burner after a long walk. And even if you don’t make it very far from your luxurious base, the wildlife comes to you. It’s not uncommon to see a huge variety of birds as wild deer stroll past your deck. A perfect location for a Scottish adventure!

5: Foxglove Cabin

A stylish log cabin with a large outdoor deck and your very own hot tub sounds like pure luxury, right? This Cumbria-based holiday allows you to relax by the water, a stone's throw from The River Lyne. 

Including all the mod cons you might expect, this large cabin’s deck is the perfect place from which to enjoy the magnificent view. However there’s no Wifi, making it feel like a world away from the everyday stress of modern life. 

We hope our favourite log cabin and glamping getaways have given you plenty of food for thought. Perhaps they’ve inspired you to invest in a special retreat for your own back garden? Take a look at our wide range of log cabins to see traditional and contemporary designs to suit all types of setting.
