Newly Added

New to Host Unusual: a TV-Featured Heavenly Haven, a Sleek Superyacht, Private Glass Eco-Pods, and Many More!

10 May 2023

Our latest collection of newly-added retreats are worthy of the most luxurious fantasy holiday bucket-list you can imagine!

First up is a pet-friendly heavenly haven in rural North Yorkshire, whose incredible transformation was featured on the popular TV show, Caroline Quentin’s Derelict Rescue. Boasting a ‘secret’ bookcase door and a spectacular handmade staircase, there’s no end to the divine delights you’ll discover.

Or you could choose to live it up oligarch-style, aboard a 60ft luxury motorboat… complete with a jacuzzi hot tub and the most incredible views across to Port Solent.

Prefer something a little closer to nature? Dotted across 15 acres of ancient Devon oak woodland is a unique selection of lovingly hand-crafted wooden havens, with creatively upcycled furnishings and snuggly off-grid comfort. Meanwhile, in Norfolk you can bed beautifully down in a vintage horsebox retreat that’s packed with artistic style.

And for seekers of the truly exotic and other-worldly, New Zealand’s unspoilt Kāpiti Coast is home to a blissfully private, gleaming glass pod-for-two that offers an unforgettably dreamlike setting for romantic couples.

Having trouble deciding on a favourite? Browse our hand-picked list to find out more about each one of these magnificent retreats… and many more besides!
