Carr Bank Barbecue Cabins

Our Log Grill Cabins / Grillkotas are built in the traditional Lapish style of Northern Finland and offer the year round dining culture that the Scandinavians have been enjoying for many years. The ability to use your cabin all year round is something that we at Carr Bank Garden Centre find really appeals to the British public.

From a back garden to a fishing lake the Barbecue Cabin range has something to offer everyone.


We’ve got our own!

We love to show off our very own barbecue cabins (or hobbit hut as its come to be known!) so come on down if you fancy a look! We have an older design 10m Sloping Walled Cabin, a newer 4.5m Baby Cabin and a brand new 7m Sloping Wall cabin for you to see. We also have a range of display buildings for you to browse, including log cabins, aluminium greenhouses and cedar wood greenhouses, and one of the finest ranges of display sheds in Cumbria.

Our barbecue cabin has seen use many times as our customers can tell you. We have hosted pet days on a few occasions and had the Kota fired up and cooking sausages for all our hungry customers to see what all the fuss was about. Alongside this, we have been known to use the barbecue cabin ourselves on a few evenings – it really is a unique experience, and to be able to use it all year round is perfect in our unpredictable climes!

Common Questions:


Custom Built to Order

All our cabins are built to order to your specifications, we can and will build our cabins to suit your particular requirements & can make most things a reality when it comes to your cabin.

We typically we work on a 3-5 week order time from receipt of deposit payment, although at busy periods this can be up to 6-7 weeks. We will advise you on our lead times upon enquiry, and of course can work to suit your schedule if required.


The ideal base for a Grill Cabin is a purpose built concrete base with ventilation pipes to allow proper airflow to the central grill however any level concrete/paving area will also suffice with some added vents, also timber decking bases are suitable as long as they are well supported & can be much more suitable on uneven terrain or in places with tricky access. We can of course carry out any base works you may require as well as other Landscaping services. please contact us for more information

Cabin Care

Although our cabins are virtually maintenance free it is essential they get a proper exterior treatment once built. The Pine timber used to construct our cabins is a beautiful wood & we find a simple treatment with exterior wood preservative is ample to help protect the wood & keep it looking at its best. We offer preservative treatment as an option with any of our cabins fitted by us, in either Golden Brown, Dark Brown or Clear. Alternatively many of our customers opt to treat their own cabins but we would recommend you do so as soon as possible after construction to prevent the timber from being exposed to the weather.
