Why Others Tell Us They Love the Berryfield

Simple yet attractive on the outside and bright yet cosy on the inside, the Berryfield gives you all that is best about a log cabin at a price that suits almost any budget. The slightly overhanging roof and half glazed double doors look stunning on the Berryfield. With two opening windows, one on the front and one on the side, plenty of natural light is allowed to flood in, making spending time in your log cabin a real pleasure. Generous headroom and the quality timber walls are added in to the mix to make the interior a really fantastic space. Our customers often like to add their own personal touch by painting their log cabins which look fantastic in any colour. Shire recommends you use Protek paint, available from elbec in a wide variety of colours. By using Protek Royal Exterior, you can make the Berryfield look exactly how you want it while adding extra protection to the timber. As you can see from our image, this is just one example of how beautiful you can make your log cabin look with a splash of colour.


A Shire Log Cabin is built to last, and the Berryfield 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 the Berryfield Log Cabin. It is delivered with thick interlocking logs of the highest quality and robust, heavy duty roofing felt, so you can rest assured that you will be nicely sealed away from the elements and snug when inside. With a Mortice lock and key door, (key included) you can feel safe leaving items overnight in your log cabin. The handcrafted joinery on the windows and doors is a real sign of quality, and you will struggle to find this feature on any log cabin that isn’t produced by Shire. You can also 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 having our dedicated professionals assemble your log cabin quickly and correctly. However, you can choose to use the comprehensive instructions included and construct it yourself.

Alternatively, why not visit us at our Brookfields Garden Centre showsite in Nottingham? One of our helpful advisors will be on hand to show you around so you can really appreciate the look, feel and quality of our log cabins.

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.
