Log cabin breaks Log cabin breaks are the perfect way to relax and get back to nature. Whether you’ve had a busy week at work or want to treat your loved one to a romantic break, log cabins are an ideal choice when you want that rare combination of natural beauty, privacy and peace. Located in some of the world’s most secluded and spectacular destinations, you’ll be able to balance your time between exploring the great outdoors, and getting cosy in your cabin come evening. You could go fishing, trekking in the mountains, rock-climbing or even caving: living on the edge of a Scottish loch or in the midst of Austrian mountains, you won’t regret living it up in a log cabin this year.
