Home Log Cabins to Rent

2650 Log Cabins with a nearby beach in the UK

The UK has a huge number of beaches, but for most of us a day on the beach involves a long drive with lots of traffic if the sun is shining. So how nice would it be to stay in a log cabin where the beach is on your doorstep, or at least just over that hill? Log cabins usually have a nice verandah where you can leave out the windbreak, body boards or wetsuits, or just the buckets and spades. After all the kids will want to use them all again tomorrow! The log cabins below have beaches close by.
