If like me you're a little bit country and a little bit rock 'n' roll, you'll absolutely love glamping at Deadwood Cabins* in rural Lincolnshire. Inspired by a deep-rooted love for the Wild West, the family-run business have brought a touch of the ranch lifestyle to the East Midlands with three Tombstone-style luxury log cabins.
Located not far from Spalding in Lincolnshire, Deadwood Cabins is an adults-only western inspired plot with three Americana themed cabins, complete with everything you'd need for a weekend away. The Sheriff's Cabin, Rawhide and Longhorn Saloon are filled with trinkets from American travels and all the facilities you'll need to make you feel right at home.

All three cabins include a hot shower, double or king sized bed, TV, private BBQ area and kitchenette although the biggest of the three cabins if you're looking for a special weekend away is the Sheriff's Cabin. This comes with a fully working kitchen, separate living room and bedroom. Personally though, I loved the Rawhide the most due to its incredible theming and cosy feel. It had everything we needed all in one space (but yes, it still has a separate bathroom and shower).

Deadwood Cabins is the perfect place for a relaxing weekend away from any hustle and bustle. Due to it's quiet location, you can enjoy the peace and quiet, cook up a storm on your BBQ, sip a cold beer and play your country tunes. Whilst the other cabins may be occupied, they are spaced out enough that you needn't bother each other and can go about your stay.
We've visited Deadwood Cabins twice since it's opening in 2021 and it's continued to grow ever since. They've added four gorgeous pigs (Dolly, Doris, Annie and Jane) who love an apple or banana if you fancy giving them a treat; a multitude of chickens, as well as a breakfast saloon where you can help yourself to eggs, enjoy a hot drink and relax.

The theming of Deadwood is something to behold. At times there are moments where you really feel as though you could be in America, without the jetlag or plane ride. We visited the second time with four friends and, if you can, I'd wholeheartedly recommend renting all three cabins for a truly unique experience with your family or friends. We enjoyed the BBQ (guests can bring their own or ask for it to be supplied at a small fee) and enjoyed a night around the fire.
In terms of things you'll need to bring, the majority of necessities is provided as part of your stay, including bread, jam as well as tea and coffee making facilities. There are plenty of blankets and heating in the cabins, although I would recommend bringing something warm to wear if you want to sit outside in the evenings, even during those Summer nights. If there's anything you've forgotten, the Deadwood team are only nearby and can provide pretty much anything you'd need, including fire wood.
I will say, if you happen to attend on a rainy weekend, it can put a bit of a dampener on it (forgive the pun). However, I don't think you need good weather to enjoy your time at Deadwood. The thought of snuggling up inside your cabin with some cowboy movies, maybe some board-games and good food sounds just as pleasant, especially if you're staying in the Sheriff's Cabin which is very spacious and you can make use of the kitchen.
Overall, I can't recommend Deadwood Cabins enough. I've stayed there both as a gifted stay, and paid for myself to go and I'd happily pay again and again having seen the amount of work that goes in to each visit. You can check out their website for all information and bookings, as well as their new shop which has some awesome trinkets.
A huge thanks to Paris and the Deadwood team for all their amazing work.
Until next time cowboys,
