Nestled in some of the most beautiful spots in the UK, our cosy cabins combine luxurious interiors with incredible storybook settings. On a cabin holiday you’ll rediscover the playful, den-building magic of childhood while enjoying grown-up comforts (we know that big kids need coffee and a good night’s rest). Think rosy-cheeked rambles from your cabin door, followed by long, lazy soaks in outdoor tubs with sweeping views. Board games by the wood burner, stargazing and dreamless sleeps in inky darkness surrounded by nature. Settle in, switch off and perfect the art of slow cabin life. There’ll be no need to pick up your phone except to take a few envy-inducing photos…
Hidden deep in a secluded part of the Lake District National Park, you’ll only discover the exact location of this cool, nomadic cabin shortly before your stay. Gorgeous Hinterlandes Cabin keeps visitors guessing by moving between several different idyllic spots in the Lorton Valley. It might be built on wheels but with its marble-clad wet room and chic Scandi aesthetics, this is most definitely glamping, not caravanning. A large panoramic window frames the ever-changing views of rolling hills and woodland, inviting you to venture out and explore the miles of hiking trails, mountain streams and plentiful wildlife on the doorstep. If you’re feeling adventurous, hire bikes from hosts John and Hannah or head to Derwent Water Marina or Keswick Adventures to earn your supper doing some invigorating outdoor activities. Then enjoy a glass of something celebratory under a starlit sky in the wood-fired hot tub without another soul in sight.
A slice of Cornish heaven tucked away in the woods on Bodmin Moor. You’ll feel like you’ve melted into the wilderness when you stay in Halvana. It’s a glamping paradise where you’re likely to spot birds of prey, hear owls hooting and badgers snuffling. The cabin has a Cath Kidston meets Edin Blyton vibe reminiscent of a frontier lodge, with an open plan layout and stylish, natural décor. If you’re bringing the kids, two people (adults or older children) can sleep in an atmospheric mezzanine ‘Nest’ above the branches. The upper window provides a great view for birdwatching so pack your binoculars. Cares will drift away in this cosy cabin as you embrace the simple life – take a long walk on the moor before returning home to loll in the hammock or toast marshmallows over the fire pit under twinkling festoon lights.
A warm soak in the luxurious outdoor copper bath on a frosty morning really is ‘Devon on earth’ at Holly Water Cabin. The large sliding windows connect the simple lines and smooth wood of the interior with the farmland and open skies beyond. Stylish touches of leather, stone and copper create a tactile, cosy atmosphere that you won’t want to leave. Happily, there’s no need to. Start your day with a morning coffee and pastries on the deck and finish with rugs and red wine by the fire bowl. Fill the hours in between with games of backgammon, cooking on the open campfire and paddling in the stream. If a sudden burst of energy strikes on your cabin holiday, there are maps for local walks and historic houses to visit nearby. For some urban excitement, head to vibrant, historic Exeter, 10 miles away.
You’ll be clock watching until bedtime at Bilton Lookout so you can gaze up through the special stargazing window in the cabin’s romantic mezzanine bedroom. After a restful sleep, early risers can watch the sun rise over the North Sea. A handy remote-controlled blind means there’s no need to leave the comfort of the king-sized bed to let the sweeping views in. Set on a grassy paddock in a peaceful spot on a working farm in Northumberland, Bilton Lookout is a rustic-chic, cosy cabin with huge windows. Hosts Catherine and Olly ensure the hot tub is freshly filled for your arrival so you can hop straight in, unwind and drink in the panoramic views. Visit the historic market town of Alnwick 4 miles away or wander down the path that leads from the farm to the Northumberland Coast Path and explore a wild landscape of sandy beaches and majestic castles.
Birch View is set deep in the heart of 95 acres of WW2 US airfield turned rewilded nature reserve in Northamptonshire. Immersed in blissful seclusion with only birdsong and rustling trees for company, you’ll find a cosy and beautifully-equipped larch timber cabin with a vaulted roof, picture windows, a wood-fired hot tub and enough space to comfortably sleep a family of four. You can roam freely around the paths of The Wilding Airfield, exploring different habitats and spotting a wealth of wildlife - butterflies, moths, deer, red kite, wildflowers and species of fungi. Owner Fin's mother, a passionate amateur ecologist, even offers guided walks around the site. After working up an appetite adventuring, lounge on the spacious deck and grill some delicious morsels over the fire pit or test out your creations in the pizza oven.
