            The Bere Log Cabin from Shire Log is a stunning garden building, specially designed to provide an attractive shelter for a hot tub. However, it is also ideal for outdoor entertaining, be it a BBQ, a dinner party or a space for garden games, providing you with cover from the unpredictable British weather.

            At elbec, we are confident that our log cabins are the perfect way to make the most of your unused garden space and provide a wonderful spot to relax in comfort.

            Ways to Make the Most of your Bere Log Cabin

            The Bere Log Cabin can be used for a variety of purposes, but it was designed with use as a hot tub shelter in mind. Providing you with a roof over your head and extra privacy when you are relaxing, the Bere ensures that, as long as the water is up to your preferred temperature, you can take advantage of your hot tub all year round. In fact, many customers love the added atmosphere of being warm and relaxed in their tubs while the weather beyond the confines of their hot tub retreat is far from pleasant. You could also use it to provide a bit of shelter for certain outdoor games or activities. We have heard from customers who have chosen to set up ping pong tables, paddling pools or table football, just to give a few examples. Alternatively, the Bere provides an excellent spot for entertaining. Whether as a shelter for dining on a warm evening or perhaps as the focal point for your next garden party or BBQ, the Bere is ideal. If you are looking for something a bit more robust and stylish than a traditional gazebo, the Bere would also certainly fit the bill. For any outdoor gathering, it really is the perfect purchase. But really, the Bere is the perfect insurance for any outdoor activity that might be spoilt by the unpredictable British weather. However you decide use it, you are certain to enjoy making the most of the excellent, sheltered space the Bere provides. 

            Why Others Tell Us They Love the Bere

            Customers who are drawn to the Bere are those who love the look of a traditional log cabin and are perhaps looking for something a little different to a standard gazebo or a canopy. Its classic, apex roof brings the whole package to life and the stylish, cut out windows add a unique touch. The open air design is what makes the Bere ideal for customers looking to entertain in their gardens, as well as suitable for housing a hot tub. It is important for a hot tub that steam can escape; otherwise it would damage any shelter it is situated in. And of course, you can’t beat quality timber when it comes to an attractively finished garden building, and the thick, tongue and grove timber roof and timber walls certainly deliver where appearances matter. Our customers often like to add their own personal touch by painting their log cabins and they look fantastic in any colour. Shire recommends that you use Protek paint, available from elbec in a wide variety of colours. By using Protek Royal Exterior, you can make the Bere look exactly how you want it while adding extra protection to the timber. Whether you love bold, bright colours or a more natural wood finish, Protek have a colour to suit any taste.


            A Shire Log Cabin is built to last, and the Bere is no exception. With overlapping corner logs and 4-way corner joints used by Shire as standard, you’ll be impressed by the strength, stability and sturdy feel of your cabin. The walls are 28mm thick as standard, which ensures an extra-robust construction. You can choose to add a floor to the Bere too if you intend to use it as an entertainment area, for example, rather than for a hot tub. All the fixtures and fittings necessary are supplied with your cabin, including green mineral roofing felt. You can upgrade from the felt provided to our stylish, hexagonal roof tiles, available in green, red or black, if you want to add a little something extra to your cabin. You can purchase and construct your log cabin in the confidence that all Shire Log Cabins can be dismantled and rebuilt should you ever decide to move. We’re pleased to offer the option of booking our installation professionals who will assemble your log cabin quickly and correctly. However, you can choose to use the comprehensive instructions included with the log cabin and construct it yourself.

            Range of Customisations Options

            At elbec, we offer a range of customisation options on all our Shire log cabins to help give you your perfect cabin. Why not opt to purchase our hexagonal roof tiles, available in red, green or black, to add extra style and insulation to your cabin? Take a look at our range of customisations to make the changes you want.

            About the Timber

            You will be impressed by Shire's use of natural products and their environmental credentials. A high quality timber log cabin starts with high quality timber, so it is important to know exactly what timber is being used for your log cabin. The most commonly used timber for garden buildings is pine (pinus) as this is widely available for a very cheap price, however all of Shire's garden buildings are constructed using high quality spruce (picea) and is sourced from Scandinavia under strict FSC guidance. Spruce is more durable than pine and provides a higher quality finish. This timber is slow grown unlike fast grown British and Eastern Europe's timber, being slow grown timber means a tighter grain, less sap and with far fewer knots. The timber used on Shire's log cabins is therefore a more durable timber that will last much longer than other timbers used on log cabins. Spruce is therefore the timber of choice for companies such as Shire who always look to produce the best garden building.


            It is important that the base for your log cabin is firm and level. You can request 'Guidelines for Preparing a Concrete Base' through our 'Contact Us' Section.

            Picture shows how this log cabin can be used to house a hot tub (hot tub not supplied).

            All Shire Log Cabins are supplied untreated. You must apply a wood treatment to the exterior. Shire recommend Protek Royal Exterior paint, available from elbec in many different colours. This will protect the timber from weathering, making it last longer. The timber treatment will need to be repeated periodically in line with the manufacturer's instructions.

            Please note: The specification table below shows the Shire Bere Log Cabin in 28mm Logs. All imperial measurements are approximate and the log cabins are built to metric measurements. The width and length measurements are the base sizes and are taken to the extreme external length of the log including the wall corner joints that protrude. The base measurements do not include any roof overhangs. The 'G' on the log cabin sizes means the 'gable end' which is the open door side for the Bere Log Cabin. These log cabins are supplied untreated.

The symbol (G) relates to the Gable End which for this log cabin is the front width (open door side) and is the first measurement. The second measurement relates to the depth therefore for a 3250G x 3250mm (11G x 11') model the open door/front width is the open door side.
