CABIN SPACEY

Cabin porn: five luxe huts that ditch civilisation in style

Adventure

Five amazing 'quiet space' cabins you can buy for your own backyard...

If you’re one of the 500,000 followers of the @CabinPorn Instagram channel, you’ll know that cabin porn is a cult phenomenon. Recently, cabin porn – depictions of idyllic outdoor spaces – was immortalised in a series of coffee table books. The cool hideaways range from cutting-edge cabins with solar panels to fancy camper vans, tree houses and yurts.

Cabin porn is the brainchild of Vimeo co-founder Zach Klein, who – like many a young Silicon Valley tech billionaire – wanted to escape technology as quickly and efficiently as possible. “I’d spent six years in the city building online communities and now I wanted to build one offline,” he says in his book, Cabin Porn: Inspiration for Your Quiet Place Somewhere.

But why stop with a book? Here are five amazing cabins you can buy for your own backyard…

LUMIPOD

This pre-fabricated cocoon is designed to reconnect people with nature. The 5m panoramic glass windows don’t offer much privacy, but there is a toilet and shower hidden in the back. The Lumipod can be delivered to anywhere in the world and takes 2 days to assemble. This one needs electricity and water, but the team are working on an ‘off grid’ version powered by solar panels.

From £60,000 (fully decorated)
