We have recently acquired a listed cottage in an area of outstanding natural beauty, which comes with a strip of land/garden across a small lane behind the cottage. The garden, which runs between the gardens of two other houses, is approx 80ft long by 20ft wide. We would like to erect a log cabin as a summerhouse/home office, which measures approx 5m by 4m and has a pitched roof which, at its highest, is 2.8m (9ft 3").
Our neighbour bordering one side has a fence measuring 4ft with a 2ft trellis on top. Both our gardens back onto pretty fields. We don't want to upset anyone, but from a legal point of view could the height of this log cabin be a problem?
The cabin will not be erected at the end of the garden, ie obstructing the field views, but in the middle, and is also made of natural wood, which will be painted light oak, with a moss green tiled roof.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated as we have already put a deposit on the cabin!
