HOLIDAY HOME EXCHANGE
The unique cosiness of a log cabin holiday in the UK
Who did not daydream about sleeping in their very own tree house when they were a kid? These days, it is likely that your holiday fantasies include something slightly more luxurious and down to earth. However, there is a style of accommodation that combines the best of both worlds. If you are on the lookout for an exciting and truly unique holiday, then why not live out your childhood fantasy by arranging an escape in a log cabin?
Log cabin holidays are becoming increasingly popular all across the UK. No matter who you are travelling with; your family, a significant other or even if you are going it alone, you can enjoy serenity like you have never experienced it before on the banks of a lake, deep in some rural woodland, by the beach or even at a traditional farm.
Get away from it all with a log cabin breakIf you have been feeling stressed with work or any of the other hassle of everyday life, then there could be no better way to get away from it all than a well-deserved log cabin escape. Unlike a hotel holiday, log cabin lodges are self-catering and secluded which means that you can take everything at your own pace. Imagine waking up whenever you like, enjoying a lie-in and then getting into a soft, fluffy dressing gown to enjoy breakfast while looking out the window at the stunning scenery. It does not get much more relaxing than that.
The great thing about these rustic lodges is that they are so warm and cosy; you can enjoy staying there at any time of year. If you treat yourself to a log cabin break in the summer, you will get a chance to see the British countryside at its colourful best, and the experience of bright sunlight streaming in through your cabin windows will be one you never forget. Go during a colder month and you can spend your days warming up in a hot tub and, in the evenings, cuddle up next to your log burning fireplace with a steaming cup of cocoa.
Get back to nature
Of course, you will not be spending your entire holiday indoors. These days, more than ever before, we appreciate just how beautiful the great British countryside really is. If you want to get out into nature, then a log cabin is the ideal setting for you. Cabins make wonderful bases to explore some of the country’s most magnificent, untouched landscapes.
Fill your days as lazily or as energetically as you would like. If you feel like soaking in the sights in the sunlight, then all you have to do is take a walk through the breathtaking scenery surrounding your cabin. Alternatively, you could have a look at what activities are on offer in the local area. Many log cabins are located in places which provide facilities such as fishing, hiking, sailing or rafting.
