Over a decade ago, the Kabin Company started out renovating and refurbishing redundant vehicles on the Bereleigh Estate in East Meon, Hampshire. Since then The Kabin Co. cabin projects include the conversion of a 1960s British Bedford truck horsebox into a successful holiday rental. 

A 1980s double decker bus into a deli and café and rice horse box into a mobile pizza oven. After this creative cabin start, we set out to build mobile cabins from scratch using reclaimed and locally sourced materials. 

We work with our customers to design and build totally unique spaces to meet their requirements. Popular uses for Kabin Co. cabins include outdoor offices, studios, gyms, guest bothies, glamping pods or holiday rentals, but the sky’s the limit!


The Kabin Co is a local and family run business set on the beautiful Bereleigh Estate in the Heart of Hampshire. We primarily use reclaimed and locally sourced materials, and work with an incredible network of local talent.

About The Kabin Company Team sml


Founder, Designer and Head Carpenter

In 2011 Jack founded Cedar Valley, a glamping and camping business, and has since seen the industry flourish. He started renovating and refurbishing redundant vehicles to add to the glamping collection, and has recently replaced two of the Safari-style glamping tents with mobile wooden kabins to improve their durability and the length of the season.  The versatility of these structures quickly became apparent to him, and thus the Kabin Co was born!

Built on custom-made trailer chassis, these structures have a significant advantage over static cabins, huts and lodges that require planning permission as permanent structures, and can’t easily be resold or transported. Our kabins are extremely stylish and comfortable holiday rental accommodation or glamping pods, and can operate all year round. They are also popular as outdoor offices, studios, gyms and guest bothies.

The Kabin Co also offers a consultancy service, advising clients on how to set up and run a successful holiday rental, glamping or camping operation. Jack has helped several traditional family run farms reduce their reliance on core agricultural activities, and establish successful hospitality businesses.
