Quirky holiday cottages
Looking to get away and stay in something completely out of the ordinary? An unusual holiday for a special celebration? A house with a real ‘Wow!’ factor?
Perhaps you fancy escaping to a cliff top lighthouse holiday cottage overlooking the sea in Cornwall?
Or a converted windmill with winding stairs and an incredible view?
Maybe an eighteenth century stately home in extensive grounds is more in order?
Or what about exploring one of our UK glamping escapes to one of our luxury yurts or safari tents. With a hot tub?
We have these and many more unusual and quirky self-catering holiday cottages right across the UK - guaranteed to remain talking points for years to come!
What makes a holiday cottage quirky or unusual?
It can be subjective can’t it? What one person finds unusual, another might find rather ordinary.
However, we’re confident that our collection of idiosyncratic holiday cottages all offer something quite fun and unusual, which makes staying in them very much out of the ordinary!
It might be that the building itself is unusual – for example, a shepherds hut holiday cottage, complete with a log burner, hot tub, fire pit and supply of marshmallows!
A tower in Hadlow, fit for Rapunzel, that also happens to be the tallest Gothic folly in the UK?
Or an Oast House holiday cottage, formerly used for drying out hops and often found in the south east of England, including Kent and Sussex.
It can even be that the interior is quirky – for example, a bedroom with a speedboat for a bed (yep, we’ve had one of those too!)
But the location can also be quirky – a cliff top lighthouse, far from the madding crowds and perfect for watching incoming storms.
Or a luxury safari tent in a completely rural setting, where your kids can roam free (and safely), spending the day outdoors before retiring to proper beds with comfortable mattresses!
