luxury cabins in the cotswolds
log house holidays

Holidays are good for you – true story – which is why we’re big supporters of all kinds of jollies, no matter how near, far or long they maybe. We’re all about maximising our time off from work so as well as jetting off for longer trips we’re fans of the weekends away and a luxury cabin in the Cotswolds just 90 minutes from central London makes for a cracking night or two away from the big smoke.

Log House Holidays is a 130 acre nature reserve in the Cotswolds containing eight luxury log cabins dotted around a huge lake. Each cabin comes with it’s own private beach, rowing boat, hot-tub, fire pit with marshmallows and all mod-cons. We shacked up in Kaiser Kabin reached via its own private gravel drive that winds through the trees and set right on the waters edge – just like in the movies. Inside the cabin is an open plan living room and kitchen with panoramic views of the lake; it’s pretty special alright.

Outside, just beyond the decking, you’ll find a private rowing boat, which we used to get around the whole lake, spotting swans and herons along the way. Stop still in the centre of the lake just before the sun goes down and tell us it’s not something else. There are kayaks, bikes, endless amount of walks to venture on and even a pub a few miles away if for some reason you wanted to leave the cabin. Did we mention the hot tub? Oh yes, there is a hot tub which will turn your evenings into a wrinkled realm of fun.

This is a self-catering cabin, which means a trip to the supermarket in the near by Cirencester is high on the agenda or you could pre-arrange a delivery just to make it that bit easier. Whatever you decide it’s sure to be the only tough decision you’ll make during your stay as everything else is just bliss. Go see for yourself…
