Log House Holidays: Eco-friendly luxury lakeside in the Cotswolds

Cotswolds-based Log House Holidays have recreated the warmth and comfort of log cabins within a picturesque, secluded setting that is likely to be on the holiday watch list of everyone from eco conscious holidaymakers, families, groups and honeymooners.

This eco-friendly, family-friendly, pet-friendly holiday spot is set within a family-run 130 acre nature reserve in the Cotswolds, boasting a tranquil lake as its elemental centrepiece. Log House Holidays was set up to provide self-catering accommodation that offers a unique venue where both “conservation and totally secluded holidays would exist in harmony”.

Set around the lake are eight eco-friendly log houses, each in their own secluded spot, offering a hot tub, rowing boat and unrivalled views of the water centrepiece. Privacy is the name of the game here where you can enjoy a stay with family, friends or your significant other whilst embracing the local wildlife, the woods and tranquility which the lake brings.

As a family-run holiday spot, the owners have landscaped the site with respect to nature, having planted over 50,000 trees, wild flowers and reed beds. The eco-friendly log houses are constructed from sustainable Finnish woodlands, and with modern ground source heat pumps which extract heat from the lake, supplying the homes’ water.

An on-site solar tracking system, which is hidden away behind one of the large reed beds, provides nearly all of the electricity for the site. The log houses are decked out in antique furniture and modern appliances to give a home-from-home experience, and with the added pleasure of luxury touches throughout.

A vacation at Log House Holidays, whether for staycationers from the UK or international holidaymakers to the UK, is likely to meet all your needs and desires without having to venture off site even. There’s woodlands to discover for the kids as well as those who love to walk in nature; boat rowing to perfect; and fishing for those who would like to partake. Point being there’s enough to discover at this secluded holiday joint whether you choose to vacation for a weekend or a week. There’s plenty of chill time to be had from gazing at the stars at night from the hot tub, sitting outside eating and sharing stories, toasting marshmallows on the fire pit or simply hanging out indoors at one of the eight log houses, some of which can sleep up to eight people.
