Outdoor entertaining is something we all want to do from time to time but the great British weather doesn’t always make this possible. However, if you buy a log cabin that comes with a porch or large veranda you can enjoy a bit of al fresco dining whatever the weather – and whatever time of year it is.

This summer has been such a good one that we’ve all been very spoiled when it comes to BBQs and Pimms in the garden, but it can be a bit annoying to bring everything outside from the house time and time again. The best way around this is to create a specific outdoor space so you don’t have to continuously bring the kitchen table outside.

If you have a cabin in your garden, you can keep all your outdoor tables and chairs either inside or on the porch, so there’s no need to bring things out from the house. You can even enjoy spending time outside during the winter if you have a log burner installed in your cabin, which will keep you all toasty and warm while having a few glasses of mulled wine outside this Christmas.

Everyone likes having friends and family over from time to time and having a cabin in your garden means you can treat them to a very different experience when they come over for dinner. You don’t always have to put supper on in your cabin but it makes for a very nice change of scenery if you can make the move outside.
