Established in 1999, with four generations of logging experience and over 300 buildings in the UK, Finlog are the only UK log building company to have their own factory in Finland. Over the past 20 years, this family run company have honed their product to what it is today and were the first company that designed and constructed the first 'twin ridge' mobile home, the first Log Lodge to gain full BS3632 approval in law.
Every log cabin is manufactured at the Finlog factory in Northern Finland and constructed on site by Finlog's own build team. If you would like to design your own log cabin, feel free to pop in to the office discuss your ideas with the team.

Here at Frisby Lakes Lodge Park we like to do things a little differently. We are an ecologically sympathetic park and timber is the only 100% renewable material; therefore, our solid Finnish Log lodges have timber sourced from managed forests which is crucial to sustainability. In addition, we offer renewable heating methods alongside modern conveniences such as piped gas to keep your expenses to a minimum.
Throughout the park this environmental stance is reflected by the works being done to increase wildlife activity, such as a wadding area and Kingfisher point being introduced to entice birds to the area, along side the introduction of bat & owl boxes. And, in partnership with the Woodland Trust a planting scheme is currently underway.
It is this work that lead to the park being awarded the Gold David Bellamy Conservation Award 2015/16.
The Park has a live-on Park Manager who stays on the park 12 months a year. The managers is there to assist the residence and take care of park maintenance.
Plans for Future Development
Once the Woodlands, Waters Edge, Lake View & The Maples Lodges have been built work will then begin constructing the remaining lodges. Following this there is plans for a Lakeside Club House, complete with restaurant and bar built on the banks of the Great Lake in traditional style with stunning views and social areas.
Throughout the park construction of many secluded picnic, seating and observation area along with BBQ spots solely for the use of lodge owners has already begun.
