There are few structures that bring on such a calming, cosy vibe, than the traditional log cabin
. Looking as if they’ve jumped from a history book, these are the cabins that most people picture when they’re asked about a cabin holiday. And with their rustic appeal, they can offer you and your loved ones a superb break wherever they’re located.
Handcrafted log cabins are usually made from natural logs. This means there will be a mixture of oddly shaped logs, of different shapes and sizes, all fitted together and hand joined. Each log will have a hand-cut groove in its underside to ensure it fits tightly into the log below it.
As more and more cabins tend to be made using machinery, the traditional, handcrafted cabin is becoming more rare, and therefore more sought after. Handcrafted log cabins are often unique and charming, with a higgledy-piggledy aesthetic that is pleasing on the eye.
Machine-profiled log cabins make use of logs that have been profiled using machines to create a set of uniform, identical logs. These logs will be rounded and turned to ensure they meet a certain shape that is mathematically precise. People use advanced tech to ensure that these logs are near perfect and fit together precisely.
No matter which type of log cabin you choose, we’re sure you’ll be delighted. So why not take a look at some of our favourite log cabin Coolstays below.
