Fiddle Hill Cottage

Post & Beam log home  I  Hawick, Scottish Borders


Another local build, this two-bedroom Post and Beam log home is the perfect get away from the hustle and bustle of life. A rural retreat, it was all designed around the huge hand-crafted custom log head which now towers across its mezzaine.

Even owners, Bill and Sukie were surprised by the calmness and the quietness of the cabin, not a sound can be heard other than the faint snoring of those enjoying the comforts of the luxurious bed.

Stand out features include the prowed glass front, custom built steel and timber stairs and of course the unique handcrafted log bed. We are delighted and proud of the work of our log builders, joiners and architect who brought this build from concept through to completion.

Rented out as 5 star self catering accomodation, this unique build is also featured in recent television series on More4, ‘Impossible Builds.’


Charlie Luxton follows the Caledonia Log Homes team on ‘Impossible Builds’, as they complete the build of Bill & Sukie’s fantastic low-carbon-footprint log home in the beautiful Scottish Borders.

“Caledonia Log Homes have done a truly amazing job at Fiddle Hill Cottage. Chris is great to deal with and he and his joiners are true craftsmen who really care about the quality of their work.”

“This was the third time we have built a house, and it was definitely third time lucky. It was a great day that we discovered Caledonia Log Homes.”

“The feel, character and smell of the place is wonderful – it’s huggable”
