Life after Lockdown: Fifteen Fantastic Escapes Worth Planning Ahead For!

As lockdown slowly eases, whilst we are still physically unable to travel, we can and need to aspire to, surely? 

Future planning and research is not only good fuel for the soul, but it means that once it is safe to do so, we’ll all be ready and prepared to book a future date somewhere truly different. 

With this in mind, we thought we’d share our latest list of new and unusual property recruits with you, including waterside glamping retreats, luxury lodges and treehouses, barns, boats, tiny houses and some unique private experiences, from an idyllic Ibizan island to a quaint English pub (something we know many of you dearly miss!).

All well worth adding to that post-lockdown bucket list… Author: Alex Wilson | Host Unusual
