Packing List for Cabin Stay

If you are going on a cabin holiday, you need to make sure you pack right! Here are our seven best items to bring with you.

First aid kit

It is essential to have a basic first aid kit with plasters, antiseptic, bandages, allergy medicine, and painkillers. You might be a way from the nearest store, so be sure that you can treat any ailments quickly at the cabin.

Bug repellent

The bugs can be very active in cabin country – and these ones bite! So if you know that you will be dealing with bugs, it is a good idea to pack some spray and use it liberally.

Water filter

Having a water filter will help you out in an emergency. Water filters mean that you can drink any type of water, including from rivers and lakes. If you are out exploring the area around your cabin, this means that you won’t need to carry lots of water with you as well!

Portable charger

Not all cabins have electricity. Therefore, it’s a great idea to bring along a portable charger so you can power up your devices on the go!


Part of the appeal of a cabin holiday is the wildlife. Having a good pair of binoculars will mean that you can keep an eye out for birds and other animals!

Fleece jacket

If it is chilly inside the cabin, you will want a fleece jacket to keep warm! These have the added advantage of being lightweight and easy to carry.

Waterproof boots

When you’re living in the great outdoors, waterproof shoes are essential. You might need to go outside for quick things, and wearing waterproof boots means that your feet will be protected against rain or mud.

Pack these items, and you’ll be guaranteed an enjoyable cabin holiday!
