After months cooped up at home and international travel remaining a tad precarious, UK holidays are where it’s at.

Our time in lockdown has made us yearn for a return to nature, making us crave glorious outdoor spaces and a return to the basics.

But not all of us are made for camping… and that’s where log cabins come in as a cosier alternative.

Helping us to tick off our getaway needs while maintaining social distancing are the experts at money.co.uk, who have created a list of the best 10 log cabins to rent out for your next staycation.

They took the best uk destinations from their 2020 Safecation Report, – meaning they have plenty of space for social distancing – then mapped out log cabins that are close to each location, providing all the inspo you need for a secluded retreat.

So, which cabin are you picking?
