You may think that log cabins with hot tubs are best enjoyed in the summer – being sat in a hot tub enjoying a nice glass of wine or a cool beer absorbing the scenery is ideal, but actually hot tubs can be used all year round, and make a welcome treat if you decide to take a log cabin holiday in the UK’s cooler months.

From October until mid April many people may consider it madness to sit outside in a hot tub of water, however don’t knock it until you’ve tried it! This comes from personal experience; it is strangely THE most perfect time TO immerse yourself into a relaxing hot tub after you have been on an afternoons’ adventure scaling the nearest mountain. The water temperature of the hot tub is warm enough so that you can sit out and enjoy views even if the weather is freezing cold – So don’t exclude lodges with hot tubs this winter as you will discover that they will be the making of your holiday!

What better way than to relax how nature intended; outside in the fresh air with the most beautiful views of the rugged Scottish landscape. The views go on for miles and having the added bonus of the warmth of the water it will be without a doubt the added extra that you were looking for on your holiday.

Perhaps you are simply to ‘chicken’ to brave the winter dash from indoors to the hot tub? Then a better option for you, may be to hire a cabin with a hot tub in the summer months, where you can slowly saunter from the double doors to the hot tub without catching a chill!

Perhaps, if you are stuck for gift ideas they could be the perfect the gift. Choosing a holiday lodge with a hot tub is the perfect way to spend a romantic weekend. We all need to get away from all the hustle and bustle of our hectic lives, and a holiday in the countryside will tick all the boxes. The tranquil and peaceful log cabin sites will offer you and your partner the opportunity to completely shut off from the outside world. After an invigorating trek you can relax at the end of the day with each other in a warm and welcoming hot tub and take in those beautiful unspoilt views.

Log cabins in Wales are proving to be a very popular type of accommodation – they’re warm and cosy providing all that you need whatever the weather. You’ll find some log cabins that are part of larger development and others that are privately owned in secluded spots. For those of you taking families, staying on a holiday park with facilities for children could be perfect if the weather turns bad. If you prefer a quieter holiday though, you may like to opt for a privately owned log cabin where you can enjoy the magnificent scenery that Wales has to offer.

There are many log cabins in Wales and this means that you are sure to find a log cabin holiday in the area that you want. If you want mixture of city and scenery then look to the south of Wales where you can stay in a log cabin in the countryside but is only a short drive from Cardiff. Cardiff has a wealth of attractions and from sporting (the Millennium Stadium) to cultural delights such as castles and historic sites. With over 350 restaurants bars and clubs you also won’t be spoilt for choice if you decide to stay the evening. You don’t have to be far from Cardiff to enjoy the wildlife that Wales has to offer.

If you are trying to escape the hustle and bustle of the city and want a country side retreat where you can spend some time in the mountains then look not further than North Wales. The Snowdonia National Park – situated in North Wales – is home to Snowdon – 3650ft of mountain which is the largest mountain in Wales. Pick a clear day and scale Snowdon and you will enjoy unspoilt views of the Snowdonia National Park. If mountain climbing isn’t your thing though there are plenty of gently walks to enjoy where you can absorb the rugged beauty of north Wales.

For the Wildlife lover log cabin holidays in Wales are ideal. Stay in mid Wales and you could visit the Red Kite centre in Argaty, this centre has successfully reintroduced Red Kites back in to Wales and feeds them on a daily basis when you can enjoy watching these wild birds of prey feed.

For adrenalin junkies there are numerous sports centres in Wales that offer a host of activities from climbing and abseiling to gorge walking and canoeing. For keen mountain bikers you will also find a couple of Mountain bike trails where you can be assured of no pedestrians to ‘interact” with!

Taking a log cabin break in Wales appeals to a wide range of people so if you are toying with staying in the UK (or visiting from abroad) take a look at some log cabins in Wales.

What You Can Expect From A Log Cabin Holiday

If you want to do something different for a holiday other than going to a holiday cottage, static van or even going abroad, you may want to consider staying in a log cabin. Log cabin breaks are similar to any other self catering accommodation but the main difference is most likely going to be the location.

Peace and Quiet

Most log cabin sites are very peaceful and are set in tranquil surroundings, they are the ideal place to go and unwind for a long weekend or week.

Pay for Power (but not always)

Depending on where you go you may well need to pay for electricity separately. This can be paid for in three ways:

  1. By using the traditional coin meter,
  2. You buy tokens from a ‘reception’ area
  3. The total amount of electricity you have used will need to be calculated on your departure and you will then pay for it.

If electricity is not included in the cost of yours stay and you do need to pay for electricity option 3 is definitely the most convenient, particularly if you are going away in the winter months. Who wants a trek to reception in the bitter cold to boil a kettle?

Take your own towels and maybe bedding

Most log cabin sites will provide you with bedding, but occasionally you may come across a site that requires you to take your own. Make sure that you check this before you leave home. In contrast to this, most self catering log cabins require you to take you own towels.

Take enough Food

A lot of log cabin holidays are seriously secluded so make sure that you take enough food! You may be able to find a local shop, but in some cases a supermarket may be a long drive away. Some sites suggested on lists of log cabin holidays may have a small shop on site, this is particularly true if they are part of a larger holiday park. Having said that though there do not often carry a large amount of stock and are expensive.


Quite a few log cabins have brick built barbeques available to use, so if barbeques are your thing make sure you take some tools, fuel… and something to cook on it.

Bicycle Storage

Some of the more upmarket log cabins will have a secure place that you can store your bikes, you may want to check before you take your bike with you. Other sites may well have the facility to hire bikes for you to enjoy the surroundings.

5 More Reasons Why Log Cabins Are Becoming A Popular Holiday Destination

As a follow on from my previous post here are five more reasons why taking log cabin breaks in the UK is a top idea.

  • Reason 1
    You can get that 5 star hotel feeling in the middle of nowhere, surrounded by beautiful countryside – there are a number of super luxurious log cabins dotted throughout the UK that come with log burners, flat screen TVs, hot tubs, saunas and en-suite bathrooms. You really could be in a 5 star hotel, combine this with magnificent scenery and you’ve got a holiday destination from heaven. Many sites have varying levels of cabin that you can choose from at the time of booking.
  • Reason 2
    Most log cabin sites in the UK fit in to their surroundings, you can forget about your old Butlins or Pontins sites that stamp their authority on the ground, A lot of the log cabin holiday sites are very sensitively designed allowing the cabins to melt in to the scenery, this gives beautiful sites that are blended in to the natural environment and create a very relaxing environment.
  • Reason 3
    The log cabins are built from natural materials that should come from sustainable sources; if you’ve got an eco conscience you could check the source of your cabins timber before booking your holiday. The Forestry Commission log cabin sites have excellent environmental credentials and I‘m sure that they aren’t the only ones. A site that has cabins built to the BREEAM standard are the ones that are likely to take environmental issues seriously. The BREEAM certification is a UK building standard which determines the insulations and water recycling features of new building.
  • Reason 4
    You are more likely to find a log cabin that will accept pets than a holiday cottages. Not only that but you are also likely to find that the cabin is furnished to a much higher standard than your regular holiday cottage or static van. Most cabin sites will only ask that you don’t leave your pets in the log cabins unattended.
  • Reason 5
    There are now plenty of sites offering log cabin holidays across the UK, so you will be able to find a log cabin available in an area of the UK that you want to visit that will suit your budget and requirements. Log cabin holiday sites are now scattered across the country, from the Scottish Highlands to the South of Cornwall.

5 Reasons Why Log Cabins Are A Popular Choice of Holiday Accommodation

Log cabin holidays are becoming a very popular choice for people wanting to take a break in the UK and here are five reasons why they are becoming so popular:

  • Reason 1
    Many log cabins are in fantastic locations that have scenery that you wouldn’t normally get to see unless you stayed in another form of accommodation such as a tent or touring caravan. UK planning laws seem to be a little bit more relaxed when it comes to holiday accommodation and particularly log cabin developments and there seems to be a great number of sites in fantastic locations.
  • Reason 2
    Log cabin developments tend to be will thought out and each cabin allows some privacy even though you may be sharing the site with many other log cabins. Log cabin holiday parks have learnt from the mistakes of the old 1980’s static van parks where all of the vans were uniformly aligned and facing the same way and as such the developments are much improved.
  • Reason 3
    There is a certain feel to log cabins that can’t really be described, if you’ve stayed in one then you will no that feeling, if you haven’t then perhaps you should book one up. It’s like camping but you can get a good nights sleep whether there’s a howling gale outside or it’s lashing it down with rain.
  • Reason 4
    Log cabin holidays have really only become popular recently and a lot of log cabins were built in the past ten years, but a large majority of those were built in the past five years. The fact that a lot of these log cabins are ‘new builds’ means that the quality of the accommodation and design is much better than that the static vans of yesteryear and majority of the holiday cottages on the self catering market.
  • Reason 5
    Log cabin breaks are great for the security conscious – staying in a log cabin is much more secure than camping or caravanning; it’s also safer getting to your holiday destination by not having overloaded car carrying camping equipment or towing a caravan. With proper locking doors and windows you can be safe in the knowledge that you, your family and your belongings will be safe.

Take a Log Cabin Holiday in the UK

The UK is a wonderful place in world and it seems that it is has taken a rather nasty economic crisis to wake its residents and make them realise that it really is worth taking a holiday in the UK. If you’re reading this from somewhere else in the world (other than the UK) then you will most probably agree with most of what I am commenting on in this post. If you’re in the UK hopefully you have already experienced some of its beauty.

In terms of scenery, the UK really must boast some of the best in the world, from the rugged mountains of Northern England and Scotland through to the secluded little beaches in parts of the South West of England and Wales. I really do doubt that there is a smaller country on the face of the planet with a wider range of scenery and places to experience on offer. Throughout this site I have attempted to group areas of Britain where you may like to visit.

There is more to taking a holiday in your own country though than the scenery, I find it genuinely more relaxing to go away in the UK than to go abroad.  Many people are scared of flying and there are many people don’t mind flying, though I’m fairly sure that you will find that the vast majority of travellers find the whole airport ‘thing’ a little stressful, particularly if they are taking away a younger family. Log cabin breaks in the UK remove all of these stresses and  you don’t need to worry about security checks, lost luggage, foreign currency, what’s in your luggage and whether you can drink the water when you get there.

The only problem as I see with the UK  is its unpredictable climate but if you choose the right accommodation it really doesn’t matter what the weather is doing. If you go away for a break and are prepared for it to rain then it will be a bonus when it’s a lovely sunny summer’s week. There’s more to taking holiday than just soaking up some sun – it’s about unwinding and getting away from the stresses of every day life. Just think, regardless of where you live in the UK you can jump in your car on a Friday evening, leave the stress of your job behind you, and within an hour from wherever you live you can be in the middle of the relaxing beautiful countryside. Log cabin holidays are the perfect choice of holiday for those that love to be amongst nature.
