Host Unusual’s Ten of the Best Hidden Holiday Gems

11 September 2019

Breaking away from those deeply-trodden, tourist-strewn holiday paths doesn’t just give you a welcome boost of peace and tranquility.   

It also gives you a wondrous opportunity to discover something new – a magical, well-kept secret in the form of an impossibly cosy hideaway!

We’ve purposefully selected these hidden gems for that delicious ‘undiscovered’ feeling. You could run away with the circus, in a gorgeous vintage showman’s van secluded in Sussex countryside, or take to the windswept Isle of Anglesey for a splashy stay in a converted water tower.

Whichever you choose, these relaxing retreats are sure to leave you in a quandary. Do you tell everyone about your amazing holiday, or keep the secret firmly to yourself?
