3 Of The UK’s Best Glamping Locations

Does camping bring back horrific memories of late-night, freezing cold toilet runs and torturous cross-country walks? Or do you reminisce over your camping trips, feeling a fondness towards the time spent with your family and immersed in nature? Whether you love or loathe camping, we know you’ll enjoy glamping.

What is glamping?

Glamping enhances all the best bits of camping while removing those less-desirable elements. Trade in your two-man tent for a fully furnished, state of the art gazebo. Wave goodbye to disgusting portaloos and enjoy a toilet cleaner than the one at home. And enjoy all the wonders of nature with a soft pillow to rest your head on when the day is done. Sounds far from the camping trips you enjoyed as a kid, right?

With glamping, you can give your family the adventure and awe-inspiring time in nature you experienced as a child but ensure comfort at the same time. Electricity, warm water, and storage space are all part of the glamping experience.

Logspan glamping-pod investors are seasoned glampers who enjoy the ease of having their own ready-made glamping location all year round. And we also provide pods for popular glamping spots around the country. If you want to give glamping a go, why not try one of these glamping locations for your next holiday?

5 Unique Ways To Use Your Log Cabin

You want a beautiful wooden log cabin for your garden. But you can’t see yourself using this space for reading, working, housing guests or any of the other popular log cabin uses. Just because you’re not attracted to Pinterest pictures of pretty log cabins doesn’t mean you don’t have a practical purpose for a garden cabin.

Why you want a log cabin

You might not have the exact purpose of your log cabin, but you believe an enchanting log cabin in Scandinavian spruce would instantly upgrade your outdoor space. And you know having the extra space would be an asset to your family life. We’re sharing a few less popular ways to use your log cabin that you and your loved ones might not have thought of.

A games room

Are you fed up with looking at wires from games consoles and plastic toys strewn across your home? Instead of limiting yourself to your log cabin for sanctity, make your home yours again and turn your garden cabin into a games room. It will provide a space for the kids to play safely, give you your beloved home back, and instil independence in your children.

Chicken Coop

Have you always dreamed of owning chickens? Fresh eggs in the morning, a lively cockerel waking you up in the morning. It sounds like the cottage core dream, doesn’t it? Well, even if you’re a city-dweller, you can still have chickens, as long as you have the right area for them. A log cabin is a safe and homely space for your chickens. They’ll feel comfortable with all the wood shavings they need to grow big and strong and provide you with those tasty eggs you love!

Please note, chickens require 1,100 square centimetres each, consider this when investing in your log cabin.

Bike garage

If you’re craving extra storage to make your home look tidier and feel less stressful, a log cabin is ideal. Bikes and scooters are essential for commuting, weekend adventures, and exercise. But that doesn’t mean you need these items taking up space in your house. Here, they’ll be safe, avoid weather damage, and easy to access when you need to.

Garden bar

You’re familiar with our BBQ huts, but why not ditch the cooking and relax with a drink instead? For the not-so-foodie individuals, you can transform your log cabin into a personal bar. Invite your friends round for an elevated “night in”. And make sure to stock the fridge with your favourite spirits and soft drinks. But be warned, when curfew hits, you might struggle to get the customers out the door!

Not knowing how you’ll use your log cabin doesn’t mean this beautiful outdoor building won’t be an asset to your lifestyle. The way you use your log cabin is likely to change over the years. You don’t have to have the purpose of this investment outlined right away! Take some time to consider the practical and personal uses of an extra room. You never know, an idea might come to mind when you see it standing proudly in your garden.

Upgrade Your Log Cabin This Spring With These 5 Interior Ideas

Spring has finally sprung, and you want to make the most out of your outdoor space. Your daffodils are blooming, the scent of fresh grass fills the air, and at last, the sun is shining down on you. Blissful, isn’t it? But, your log cabin still sits, frozen from the winter chill and waiting for life. Are you guilty of abandoning your log cabin during the colder months? We’ve all been there. But, now spring is here, it’s time to open the doors and make the most out of your outside paradise. We’re sharing five interior ideas to upgrade your log cabin this spring.

Florals

Hear us out on this one. Florals for spring might garner a little giggle. Some might claim that the age-old combination is far from groundbreaking. But, we believe florals for spring might not be revolutionary, but it is classic. And classic interiors never go out of style. If you’re a fan of bright florals and beautiful fragrances, fill your log cabin with fresh flowers, soft floral furnishing, and even a reed diffuser (we recommend Jasmine or peony).

Cottage core

Cottage core has a big mid-pandemic moment. However, the interior style is still hugely popular and ideal for an outdoor space. Transform your log cabin into a miniature cottage with wicker baskets, linen textiles, and comforting natural colour palettes. If you’re a city-dweller with a secret love for rural life, this interior style can give you a taste of a different life.

Rustic

Go one step further than cottage core and lose yourself in the rustic aesthetic. Your wooden log cabin is the ideal location for this casual and calming interior style. At the heart of rustic decor is an appreciation for natural beauty. Weave wood, stone, leaves and other earthy materials through your garden cabin for this interior style. Spring is the season of rebirth, so there’s no better time to show your admiration for the natural world!

Minimalist

Strip things back with a minimalist approach. Minimalism is becoming an increasingly popular interior design. Living with less and enjoying an uncluttered environment enables people to reconnect with their minds, body and soul. Having neutral colours and less furniture will transform your log cabin into a crisp and clean sanctuary. Use this season as a period of reflection, and make your garden cabin the perfect place to unwind.

Fresh & classic

If you want to ensure your interiors are timeless, and you’ll make the most out of your garden cabin long after spring is gone, fresh and classic is the way to go. Combine quality furnishings with block colours and popular patterns. Add a few ornate details and fresh flowers/plants that give you the option of switching these out as you transition through the seasons.

Spring is a season of newness, so why not take this as an opportunity to give your log cabin a make-over? Pick an interiors design style that matches your taste and have fun making alterations to your space. You’ll enjoy immersing yourself in the season and have a beautifully decorated cabin once it’s complete!

What’s The Right Size Log Cabin For My Garden?

One of the things we love about our job as garden cabin, BBQ hut, and gazebo builders is getting to see your beautiful gardens. Log cabins are an asset to any outdoor space. Every garden we see is overflowing with personality. It’s the uniqueness of your spaces that encourages us to create buildings packed with character. We understand that every garden has its own style, space and purpose, so our cabins reflect this.

Picking the size of your log cabin is an important decision. To help ensure you make the right choice, we’re sharing five things to think about before deciding on the size of your log cabin.

How big is your garden?

The first thing you need to establish is how big your garden is. After all, there’s no point in purchasing a log cabin that won’t fit! Before you reach out to us or your cabin builders, measure the length and width of your garden. If you know where your future garden cabin will go, measure this area too.

How much excess space do you want outside your log cabin?

Most people want a garden cabin as a secret hideaway or practical storage space at the end of their garden. We recommend picking a building that still allows you garden space.

You don’t want a cabin that takes over the garden. But you also don’t want to pick a model that’s too small for your needs. You need to strike a balance between what you need your cabin for and how much outdoor space you want.

What will you use your log cabin for?

When you consider what you need your cabin for, debate whether this activity requires a certain amount of space. For example, if you’re fixing old bikes, you’ll need a workbench, tool storage, and room for the bikes. If you’re using your cabin to read and relax, you don’t need to be as strict about space.

How many people will occupy this space?

If you’re using your garden cabin as a home office or classroom, you might need to consider additional people. Will your home office need space for two desks? Will you and your children comfortably fit in your cabin with all the necessary apparatus required for teaching?

Personal preference

It’s your log cabin you’re buying. Whether you’re investing for practicality or style, it’s up to you how big your cabin is. Some people prefer petite, cute cabins that get lost in the garden landscape. Other homeowners want a show-stopping modern structure that they can admire from inside their homes. Why not browse our website and see which style of garden cabin resonates with you? We’re certain something will catch your eye.

We offer a bespoke cabin service, so we can make a cabin that’s perfect for you. Why not let us know the dimensions of your space, and we’ll create the log cabin you’ve been dreaming of?!Click here to browse our full range of log cabins.

A Double Versus Single Garage: What’s The Best Choice For My Property?

It’s finally time to add a garage to your property. You’re tired of trying to find a parking space after work, the bikes and scooters littering the hallway are bothering you, and you crave extra space for the less desirable must-haves that come with owning a home. But, like all home investments, garages aren’t one size fits all. And deciding on the correct size garage for your home isn’t easy. Double or Single?

The first important decision you need to make is whether you need a double or a single garage. Those with less space will likely be limited to a single garage. But, if you have the room, you might have to decide what means more to you, having more space or storage? We’re outlining everything you need to consider in the double versus single garage debate.

How many vehicles do you have?

The primary use for a garage is to home your vehicles. If you’re building a garage with the sole purpose of getting your car off the road, a single garage is adequate for your needs. However, if you have several cars or you’re likely to have more vehicles in the future, a double garage provides more space.

Those who need the storage of a garage but enjoy the aesthetic of a log cabin will love The Worcester.  Its roof purlins and Northern spruce make this building eye-catching and attractive while simultaneously providing all the space you could possibly need.

Will you use your garage for other activities?

If you want a garage for engaging with activities inside, but away from the comfort of the home, a double garage could suit you best. For example, you might need somewhere safe to store the car and a practical spot to put your running machine. Alternatively, if your garage will only serve as a space for activities (gyming, fixing up bikes, building etc) a single garage makes an ideal workshop space.

How much time do you spend in your outdoor space?

One key thing to consider that many buyers overlook is how much time you spend in your outside space. If you love spending summers laying on the grass and playing games on the patio, it’s unlikely you want to lose this space. A double garage takes a significant amount of room, whereas a single garage can provide you with practical space and still give your room for fun.

Those who live in cold climates might prefer a double garage because they never have the opportunity to enjoy the outside for extended periods of time. Before buying your garage, think about the relationship you have with your outdoor space.

What’s your budget?

The larger size and more materials mean double garages cost more than single. If you’re keen to have a garage but don’t have a big budget, a single garage will be more appropriate. The Chester Garage costs just £4,820.00 and is a marvellous addition to your home and lifestyle.

Garages are safe spaces to keep your cars, a room for activities you love, and an asset to the exterior of your home. Plus, having a garage can drastically increase your property’s value! But, before you pick a garage, you need to decide whether you’re better suited to a single or double. If you’re still struggling to choose, you can talk with a member of the Logspan team. We’re always happy to help.

Make The Most Out Of Your Outdoor Space This Summer With A Log Cabin

After a long hard winter, you can’t wait for summer to arrive. But, you feel your garden isn’t at its full potential. The flowers are blooming, the grass is beautifully green, but you don’t have somewhere to sit and enjoy it all. That’s where your log cabin comes in. Log cabins are popular outdoor spaces that allow you to enjoy your garden while engaging with activities you love. If you think this summer is the season you’ll invest in a log cabin, there are a few things you need to consider first.

Log cabins have several uses, and you can purchase different cabin styles to suit your needs. At Logspan, we offer gazebos, BBQ huts, bespoke buildings and more. It’s worth looking at our website and seeing if an alternative cabin style best suits your needs.

Popular uses for traditional log cabins during the summer include:

Play area for your children.

You want your child to be able to enjoy the summer safely. However, the sun’s harmful rays mean you can’t guarantee the protection of your child at all times. A log cabin provides a safe, contained, and shady environment for your children to play in.

Eating space

You might be interested in a BBQ hut, a two-in-one solution for cooking and sitting outside. But, some people prefer to use their log cabin as an extended dining room or buffet space. Keep your food fresh and away from bugs inside your garden cabin. And set up a table and chairs for those who wish to eat inside, away from the sun.

Reading nook

Have you always dreamed of a summer escape? A personal paradise for you to unwind away from the hustle and bustle of the busy house? A garden cabin is your perfect outdoor sanctuary. Read with sunlight beaming through the window and enjoy the tranquillity of your private space.

Things to consider before ordering your garden cabin

There are numerous ways to use a garden cabin in the summer. But, you need to ensure it’s the correct investment for you and your family.

Will you use it all year?

Before you invest in a log cabin, you need to consider how and when you’ll use this space. Do you want a log cabin for summers in the shade? Or is it a purchase you’ll use in the winter, turn into a home office for autumn, and enjoy during spring too? If you think you’ll only utilise your garden cabin in summer, is it worth the investment for you and your family?

Do you have the budget?

If you haven’t considered purchasing a garden cabin for a while, you might not have the budget to spend. Rather than jumping in, full steam ahead, we recommend looking at your finances, discussing with one of our cabin experts, and considering if this is the long-term investment you want to make (not just a summer fling!)

A log cabin is a wonderful accompaniment to all your summer fun. Whether you decide to build a traditional log cabin, gazebo, or BBQ hut, summers will never be the same again! But, before you reach out, ask yourself how and when you’ll use the space and if you’re ready to make the investment.

Summer Accessories For Your Log Cabin

You already know how incredible summers with a log cabin are. You’ve experienced socialising with friends, enjoying delicious meals, and relaxing in your log cabin. But this year, you’re ready to upgrade your experience and give your garden cabin that little bit extra, something to make it special and unique to you and your family. Are we right? Here are several ways you can enhance your log cabin when the weather gets warmer with some fantastic accessories.

Add a weathervane

You’ve had your log cabin or BBQ hut for a few years now. And you’re noticing other people in the neighbourhood are building log cabins similar to yours. While you’re excited they’ll get to experience the joys of owning a log cabin, you can’t help but feel a little disappointed your garden will no longer shine out amongst the rest. If you’re searching for a way to make your garden cabin unique, a weathervane is a perfect addition. At Logspan, we stock weathervanes with all different designs, so you can make sure your garden cabin stands out and reflects you! Pick from a cooper sailboat, classic rooster, labrador, and so many more.

Purchase long-lasting crockery

Summer is the season of fun and adventure. You want to be able to run around the garden, play games, eat indulgent food and drink carefree! But, with traditional crockery, you run the risk of things getting broken, causing potential hazards. Say goodbye to the porcelain cups and plates and go enamel instead. Our enamel mugs are made with adventure in mind. You won’t have to worry about dropping, spilling or misplacing this sturdy kitchen essential. Pick from red and blue, and make summer enjoying your outdoor space even easier this season.

Use a cooler table

Go one step further with your food and drink appliances and purchase a Cool Table for your garden cabin or BBQ hut. A cooler table keeps all your drinks at the perfect temperature during the sticky summer heat and adds a luxurious look to your space. Our Cooler Tables come in three designs; Moonstone, Darktsone, and Mini Darkstone. Fill your table with ice and add your favourite bottle of fruit bubbly or ice cool waters for re-energising after a game in the garden. All our cooler tables have space for resting your glasses and wood tops, meaning they can be used as regular tables when drinks aren’t required.

BBQ Hut Bundle Box

Get BBQ ready with our BBQ bundle boxes. Inside is everything you need to be king (or queen!) of the BBQ; a cushion set, extractor fan, cookbook, wooden table, and even your charcoal. We know how important a summer BBQ is to you and your family, so we wanted to ensure you’re fully prepared. Plus, you’ll be saving hundreds of pounds! Stock up now and be ready for when the first signs of British sunshine peep through the clouds (we all know this is the sign it’s BBQ time!) Pick from our 7m2, 9m2 or 11m2 bundles.

These summer log cabin accessories guarantee you’ll make the most out of your outdoor space during the most joyous season of the year. How do you plan on spending your summer? And which of these will you be using to make the long-awaited sunshine feel even more special?

Upgrade Your BBQ With A BBQ Hut

Finally, summer is upon us, and it’s time to dust off those tongs, get the charcoal warming, and pick up your favourite sausages from the butchers. But, you’re still racking your brains for ways to make your iconic summer barbecue extra special this year. You’re fed up with going to the neighbours for poorly cooked burgers and life-less bread buns. This year, your garden will be the only BBQ destination in mind, and we’ve got the tools necessary to get you there. The BBQ Hut!

What is a BBQ hut?

If you really want to wow your guests, a BBQ hut will do it. Wave goodbye to wobbly two-legged barbecues bought from the local hardware store. And swear off disposable barbecue for good. A BBQ hut will make you king of the barbecue forevermore.

Logspan BBQ huts are the same sturdy wooden outdoor buildings we’re known for, but a show-stopping barbecue sits in the middle. When you open the door to your BBQ hut, you’ll see the cooking station with a surrounding seating area. Depending on the size of your hut, the space for enjoying your delicious food will be big or small.

Before deciding on your hut, consider how many people you’re likely to invite. And discuss whether you’ll use your BBQ cabin all year round. The beauty of a BBQ hut is that your famous barbecues aren’t reserved for summer. You can have an indoor barbecue and enjoy it away from the temperamental British weather. However, if you’re less likely to utilise the space in the colder months, you might not require so much inside seating.

The benefits of a BBQ hut

Curious as to how a BBQ hut can help your hosting go down in history? Here are a few reasons why:

Stop bad weather spoiling your fun

We already mentioned how BBQ huts are appropriate for barbecues in every season, but this is such an asset for those of us in the UK! It’s not uncommon for the heavens to unexpectedly open midday, showering your delicious food with rain. No one wants a soggy burger, and a BBQ cabin will stop this from happening. Imagine a British summer not dictated by the rain. It might sound crazy, but your indoor BBQ makes this possible!

Doubles up as an outdoor space

If you’re torn between a regular log cabin and a BBQ hut, always opt for the hut. BBQ huts can double up as regular log cabins. For example, the Logscape Finman BBQ Hut 28M2 is our largest hut and can host up to 35 people! When not in use, this space turns into an additional room with space for two double beds or five singles!

Provides a more professional and intimate setting

Lunch on the grass is fun with friends and family, but for a professional meeting, you require an appropriate setting. However, this doesn’t mean you need to go inside and stare at the same four walls. A BBQ hut is an impressive building that is guaranteed to leave a lasting impression. If you’re still keen to enjoy the outdoors, we recommend an open BBQ shelter such as the Finman Open BBQ gazebo.

If you’re ready to upgrade your barbecues this season, browse our range of BBQ huts and see which is the perfect fit for you.

How to Paint your Log Cabin

When painting your log cabin there are several things to consider. Following these will make your building last so much longer. As well as that they will make your life easier as you enjoy those extra years with your garden room.

So here are 10 things to consider and follow:

  1. Order – Products should be applied in a certain order:
    1. First – ANITROT/ANTIFUNGEL PRESERVATIVE (Skipping this may leave you open to issues in the future, and void your warranty)
    2. Second – PRIMER or UNDERCOAT
    3. Third – TOPCOAT or WATERPROOFER (This might be a coloured stain or opaque paint)
  2. Paint Quality – Make sure you buy quality log cabin or timber building specific products. There is no point scrimping with the paint or preservative, buying a cheap shed quality paint. It will pay back dividends if you get a good product.
  3. Paint or Stain – It doesn’t matter if you use a stain or paint, both are equally good. Vanish can be good, but when you come to reapply it after a couple years you will need to sand the initial vanish off first. Also see below for another reason against exterior varnish.
  4. UV Damage – Make sure the waterproofed product you use has a pigment (colour) in it, a clean product. Wood that has a clear waterproofer is likely to get UV damaged, this results in black/blue spots appearing on the wood (it will look like rot).
  5. Top and Bottom – Make sure you treat all exterior parts of the log cabin. This includes all top and bottom of the doors and windows. Not treating the underneath or top of the doors/windows will cause them to expand and stick.
  6. Expanding – In the autumn/winter your timber building will expand, this might result in areas above the door and windows being exposed that have not been previously treated. This is perfectly nature and all you need to do is treat these sections as they appear.
  7. Follow instructions – Follow the instructions. Always apply the number of coats the manufacturer suggests as a minimum! More is most definitely Better!
  8. Time between applications – If the manufacturer suggests reapplying the product after 5 year, reapply after 3 years.
  9. Floor – A non-slip product is needed, varnish, paint or stain. A stain before varnish is a good way to add a little colour to the floor.
  10. Breathability – Make sure the products you use on the walls are breathable.
