Holidaying at Home

Cambridgeshire Lakes 217 v2

As we enter into the fifth week of our nationwide lockdown, we have seen a dramatic change in people’s lifestyles; from moving over to remote working and online shopping, to having a very different approach to planning summer holidays.

With so much uncertainty around when international travel will return to normal, many families are looking into holiday destinations closer to home. Getting that holiday fix doesn’t have to mean leaving the country, with options such as glamping or renting out cabins within the countryside readily available, the perfect break need only be a drive away. 

The popularity in holiday park getaways has been on the rise over recent years, with a study performed by Parklink stating that more than 2 million people within the UK take holidays in caravans and motorhomes every year. Due to the recent change in travel regulations, it’s believed that this number will increase during 2020, and with over 6,243 different holiday parks across the UK - there is no shortage of destination options. You can search for holiday parks in your ideal UK location here.

If you’re looking to make an investment into a holiday rental, or if you just want a countryside getaway for you and your family, a Norwegian Log Building fits within Caravan regulations so doesn’t need planning permission or building regulations. 

With a range of sizes in both contemporary and traditional design, you can create a bespoke holiday cabin whilst keeping all the comforts of home. Our log buildings need minimal routine maintenance and have low running costs, so they won't become a financial burden during the months they're not in use. 

You can learn more about the benefits of our holiday cabins, and how to get one installed, here.

It's warm and it's cosy; it's solid and it's quiet. The fragrance of pine reminds you of Scandinavian forests and summer evenings. Your imagination starts to take you places. You imagine a wood burner, perhaps a desk or why not just some space to think?

Our show home is 31 years old, yet customers still say it looks and feels brand new. That's the quality of our workmanship and the materials. When you step into a Norwegian Log building you're stepping into a feeling and just like our buildings it's one that will last.
