Is a FLOATING Log Cabin!
Being on the water in a boat is fun, but having a log home built “on the water” – LITERALLY – is just shear delight, and puts you one step closer to all the joys of nature. Scroll down to see more photos and read about this fantastic log lodge and what all it has to offer. And if you like the place enough to hop over for a visit, you can actually rent it for starting at 195 british pounds per night.
Drift serenely on a raft Huckleberry Finn would be proud of – one with a two-storey wooden cabin aboard. The Raft has a pioneer feel, built using hand-sawn pine and larch from the farm and is tethered to the bottom of a small, tranquil lake, surrounded by reeds, woods and fields.
From the jetty, a few minutes’ walk from the car park – though wheelbarrows for kit are provided – you’ll get the hang of a floating ferry platform, which bridges the gap between bank and raft.
There’s a rowing boat for splashing around as well, or for popping over from the Raft to the wood-fired hot tub by the bank, for a relaxing soak under the sky! Inside it’s cosy and comfortable, with touches of the simple life. The Raft runs on solar, there’s a camping-style gas shower (with a view of the lake!) and high-tech loo. The kitchen has gas hobs, fridge, and a proper barbecue, but your fire pit and log store are on the bank near the tethered hot tub platform, along with a couple of bikes to borrow. Watch the abundant wildlife, stargaze through the old telescope, or pick a book and just choose where to flop.
