Why I Dream Of Log Cabins In Winter*

It has been a wonderful summer, and I’ve been lucky enough to have some great adventures. But now it’s getting colder and darker again, I’m definitely feeling like hibernating! The more layers I put on, the cosier I want to feel. Don’t get me wrong. I love winter. I love the festive time of year. And I love snuggling down and feeling warm. It is perfect hot chocolate weather, and I’m on my third cup!

As a bit of a sun worshipper, I’m more accustomed to lounging about in the sunshine. I love the warmth of the sun on my skin, and I tend to feel more energised in the summer than I do right now. So now I’m starting to think about winter holidays in the snow instead of the sun, you might think it’s a little out of character.

I think I’m charmed by the romance of it all. I love spending quality time with my partner. It doesn’t really matter what we’re doing so long as we’re doing it together and having fun with it. I like active things as much as quieter nights in. Perhaps a winter holiday would be the perfect getaway for us this year after all.

There are some beautiful winter log cabins which have me picturing a snowy weekend spent around a big fire with a cup of hot chocolate. I can just see my partner in a chunky wool jumper. I would be in socks up to my knees, and my scarf would not come off! We would be snuggled up together enjoying the quiet. I think it would be such a romantic way to spend time together. Of course, we would have to head out for at least one snowball fight, though!

I think log cabins are the perfect accommodation for a romantic break. The smell of the wood and the cosiness of it all is ideal for a young couple looking for some quality time together. And what could be more romantic than cuddling up in front of a roaring fire after you’ve trekked across the snow to get there? No wonder holidays like skiing or sledding are so popular!

Winter holidays all seem to be quite activity-based as well. There is no wasting time when you’re away. You can head out into the snow and make the most of your surroundings. I would love to have a go at dogsledding. I know my partner would be just as keen to drive a snowmobile at high speed too. It would be lovely to head out into the snowy forests and listen to the wolves howling to each other through the trees. Even that sounds romantic in my mind.

So maybe I’m in a romantic mood, or I’ve just had too much hot chocolate. But I’m definitely feeling the draw of a log cabin winter holiday this year. I can’t say I’m that keen on being cold, but I’m sure my partner and I can come up with plenty of ways to keep ourselves warm. Happy holidays.
