It’s time for another Cottage Smallholder Grand Draw. We have linked up with Argos this time and the focus is on their fantastic range of garden log cabins. They are sponsoring the super prize of a £100 Argos gift voucher.

Ever since I read the books by Laura Ingles Wilder as a child, I’ve fancied having my very own log cabin. Danny shares a similar dream and would love a sturdy studio space in the garden which could double as an extra summer bedroom. Knowing Danny, he’d have heating installed in a jiffy and use it as a year round retreat.

Argos has a great range of log cabins and most of them are on sale at the moment. Danny would be happy with the Marsden Log Cabin. I’d prefer the deluxe Forest Garden Bradnor Log Cabin.

If you’d like to enter the grand draw and the chance to win the £100 voucher just leave a comment below about which log cabin you’d chose and why. The voucher can be put towards a log cabin or anything else in the garden section from cloches to power tools.

Good luck everyone!

  1. I like the look of the billy Oh cabin. Anything bigger would just take up too much of our garden space and not leave anything for growing veggies etc, It woudl make a lovely area for setting up food etc for summer parties as well.

    We have friends with a smaller cabin than any of these, and they can sit in the afternoon sunshine reading a book or evenings with a glass of wine in two comfortable armchairs – perfection. We sat in this tiny little cabin and it was so relaxing.
    For these reasons, just like Jjt363, I would go for the BillyOh Budget model 11ft x 12ft – and that sounds just ideal!
    Thanks Fiona for this link-up!

    BillyOh for me please. 🙂 WONDERFUL.

    I would love the Forest Garden Wrekin, I would plant native trees & plants around and sit inside in comfort & listen to the breeze in the trees & watch the wildlife all around.

    I would love the BillyOh budget model as a sewing workroom so I wouldn’t have to tidy up my sewing paraphernalia every day, I could make as much mess as i wanted and no one would complain!

  6. Oh I’ll take the Kestrel Corner Log Cabin please! I have the perfect spot for it to go in too!

    I’m rather taken with the Kestrel Corner Cabin- partly for the alliteration- but it looks so very snug. Add a small stove and voila, very cosy studio with plenty of light- too small to be used by more than one person, so it would have a better chance of remaining a studio not becoming a storage area for someone else….those larger cabins look all too much like potential stuff storage areas for my liking! But best of all,being a corner cabin, it looks like it has sufficient beefiness to fill The Corner Of Doom and thus solve an ongoing garden dilemma at a stroke.We can but dream…

    I would go for the BillyOh Log Cabin 9×11, as it looks very versatile. You could also fit a small woodburner in and have a lovely retreat in the middle of your garden on even the coldest day. Somewhere to write, read, no doubt sleep and be close to the wildlife.

  9. I would chose the BillyOh Garden Office Log Cabin (13 x 11ft). It would make a wonderful workroom for my sewing and silver jewellery making as their is plenty of light from the multiple windows, and it would be possible to get a good air flow for ventilation too, as some processes require this. It is also attractive and would fit in well with my cottage garden setting.

  10. I’d go for one of the BillyOh Garden Office Log Cabins (the largest one I could fit in the garden :). It would make me feel like Roald Dahl, I’m sure I’d get a lot of writing done in there! 😀
