Flat Rate Stays for Affordable Year-Round Adventures

5 July 2022

Where you stay often makes up the biggest cost of a holiday. So, not only does your chosen retreat have to be clean and comfortable (and hopefully, unusual!) it also has to have an affordable price tag.

What doesn’t help is unpredictable pricing – or worse, seasonal increases that happen during the only times you’re able to take off with all the family together!

But if you’re anything like us, you need a holiday more than ever… cost of living increase, or no cost of living increase.

That’s why we’ve pulled together a list of unique retreats that will not only add some creative flair to your break, they also offer a single flat rate price all year round (or all season, if they’re available for part of the year only).

Neither will you find any high season price increases here, meaning you can book your holiday for whenever suits you best.
