Generally, people are fine. But sometimes you want to get as far away as possible from literally all of them. If that’s the case, make the trip to The Black Shed on the bonnie Isle of Skye, where wild-haired Highland cows will be your only neighbours. Battered by the elements, this wooden box houses a surprisingly cosy open-plan living space. Read a book in front of the wood-burning stove, day trip to ancient castles, or just snooze on the king-sized bed in a cocoon of locally woven blankets.
Listen, we love the city. We love the hustle and bustle, the noise, the never-ending supply of things to do and see. But sometimes, you really do just need to escape for a bit. A change of scenery is good for you – especially if the scenery is as gorgeous as the settings for these cosy countryside cabins.
And we’re not talking about that old shed in your grandparent’s back garden. We’re talking about full-on architectural wonders – ranging from luxury woodland shacks and rustic log cabins to eco-friendly huts and elegant tree houses.
If you’re looking for a scenic hangout for a group of mates, a luxe romatic retreat, a pad to get back to basics or just fancy swerving the rest of humanity for a while, plan an escape to one of these hideaways. Here’s our pick of the best cabins and log cabins to stay in across the country.
