New to Host Unusual: Beachfront Boltholes, Quirky Cabins and More

12 August 2020

The summer heat may have been rising along with the mercury in our thermometers but we certainly have not cooled off our search for the hottest new unusual properties around, in fact quite the opposite! 

With the office fan firmly cranked up, we’ve been searching high and low to add yet more eclectic holiday gems to your wishlist. 

Here we bring you a selection of our latest additions, that includes horse truck glamping, charming huts and cabins from off-grid to architectural, haunted castle and fairytale tower retreats, luxury beachfront boltholes and more – all with an added dose of Host Unusual uniqueness, of course!
