Log Cabin Holiday FAQ’s

What is a log cabin holiday and why are they so popular?

A log cabin holiday is a self catering holiday, staying close to nature in wooden holiday lodges. It provides the perfect opportunity to down tools for a while and spend quality time with friends or family.

The popularity of log cabin holidays lies in their convenience. In no time at all you can be relaxing in your own private log cabin, as if miles from anywhere, enjoying the peace and quiet of the wonderful English countryside. Taking a log cabin holiday in the UK, means that instead of changing money and packing your passports, all you’ll need to do is select a location, load up the car, drive to your destination and relax.

Your time is your own, to do with what you will. You can lose yourself in a good book or go for lovely long romantic walks. You can take a leisurely stroll around the local towns and villages enjoying the sights, sounds and the change of pace in places you might otherwise not have come across before.

You may even find, as many have, that this pretty and peaceful corner of England appeals not just as a short holiday destination but as somewhere you may want to adopt as your permanent home.
