Log cabins offer a special kind of getaway, a certain magic you can’t get anywhere else. They let you take one step closer to nature to enjoy the peace and quiet that comes with leaving the stress of city life behind. They let you journey to the most remote and gorgeous parts of Britain, and look out of the window to see nothing but bright green hills, unravelling into the distance far further than the eye can see.


If you let your dog decide your next getaway, they wouldn’t choose a poky studio apartment in a crowded city centre. They’d want to explore the great outdoors and go for the relaxation and freedom of a log cabin getaway.





The best way to explore the beauty of Britain


Lodges and log cabins are located, almost exclusively, in the most remote and naturally beautiful parts of the UK. As well peace, quiet and stunning scenery always being on the cards, you’ll also be surrounded by some of the UK’s best walking routes.


If you think your four-legged friend gets excited at the thought of running around the local park, wait and see the look on their face when they get to the rolling hills of the Lake District. Home to hundreds of miles of beautiful countryside, here you can tackle a dog-friendly walking route up England’s tallest mountain, Scafell Pike. Or perhaps spend an afternoon wandering around Lake Windermere, before retreating to one of the county’s pet-friendly pubs.


Maybe you could book a beachside log cabin on Cornwall’s gorgeous Jurassic Coast, where your dog can dig up bones older than humanity itself? After a long walk across the craggy cliffs, you can lounge beneath the sunniest skies in Britain, while your pooch plays in the sands of England’s most popular dog-friendly beaches.

Dog Friendly Log Cabin Reviews

What our customers are saying about their stays in log cabins


Mark Thomas, November 2020


It was nice to unwind and relax in this superb lodge. It was comfortable and well equipped. We made good use of the hot tub even though the weather was a bit chilly. I highly recommended it.


Karen Tromans, May 2020


Good sized lodge in lovely surroundings, ideal base to explore North Devon and Cornwall and very reasonably priced. The welcome pack on arrival, with groceries provided by the owner, was a lovely touch. The lodge is clearly pet friendly.


Andrew Mills, July 2020


There were lots of places to visit within an hours drive. The lodge we stayed in was small but quaint, and the scenery around us was terrific. Our hosts Peter and Marion were the nicest people we have ever come across on this holiday type.


Maxine Selby, August 2020


We had a brilliant time staying in this lovely lodge. It was really peaceful and quiet and well equipped and comfortable. We visited Minehead and Dunster Castle and took a ride on the West Somerset steam railway.
