9 May 2022

Looking for a unique escape to boast about long after you’ve returned home? We’ve got you covered with our latest selection of awe-inspiring re-treats.

Upgrade your family stay in Paris to a huge, eye-popping circus or champion-themed suite, complete with games and creative accessories that may see you putting the city sightseeing on hold!

Explore the vast Galloway Hills from the quirky comfort of a rural site with wood-fired hot tubs and Segway tours, or head to a soothing 600-acre Dorset family farm and hole yourselves up amongst wildlife and golden sunflowers.

Meanwhile, if you don’t want to break your exercise routine while you’re away, this Northumberland eco-haven boasts sublime coastal views and wild fitness programmes in the Great Outdoors.

We’ve got so much more to show you, including authentic thatched havens, idyllic lakeside lodges, and a forester’s cottage owned by descendants of Robert the Bruce himself.
