The countryside of England boasts some brilliant stays, from a-symmetrical A-frames to dome homes and architectural marvels
Happy Friday, folks. Another week, another Friday Cabins coming at you from cabin-experts Cabins Etc. This here is our weekly newsletter dedicated to neat cabin projects we think you might like, from the pages of design/outdoors/online mag Fieldmag.com.
We're officially in what they call the Dog Days of summer—when time moves slower, no one is around, and the light is just beginning to change. It is the optimal time for picnics, long walks, or simply Lounging Around, oui?
Today we're taking a look at cabins around England, and yes, they're set amongst charming fairytale countryside. Read on and enjoy!

🌽 Glamping in Cornwall: 13 Huts, Pods, Domes & Tents by the Sea
This glamping list brings you cabins from Cornwall–a coastal English county that could be, and is considered its own little country. Pubs and pasties are regional delicacies and the seaside location offers bluffs and coves interspersed with low tide pools for exploring.
While camping in the Cornish countryside is a popular pastime for British teens, there are also design-forward cabins throughout the county to rest your head for us older folks. And it just so happens that some of our fave cabins like this DIY A-frame by Heather Scott and a hobbit-hole-esque prefab Iglucraft cabin are available to rent. Boo ya.
Built in the English countryside, this asymmetrical A-frame was designed by Winchester-based AR Design Studio as extra room for hosting guests and an independent space for the client's children as they grow older.
Although just 270 square feet, clever design decisions were employed to add extra space. A pitched roof made space for a sleeping mezzanine, while one side of the cabin is angled irregularly to add more space. A modest living room features a large picture window and skylight, while the back wall hides the bathroom and kid's bunks.
That’s all, folks—I’m off for my second cup of coffee.
Enjoy your weekend!
