Newly Added

New to Host Unusual: Cabins and Treehouses, Glamping, Eco Swimming and More!

7 May 2021

It’s no secret that May has been the month we’ve all been looking forward to, and at last our properties have the chance to re-open and do what they do best. What’s even more exciting is that we have twenty-five brand new recruits to the HU fold, all offering incredible and unusual holiday experiences to those (that’s you, by the way) with an appetite for something different! 

A stylish houseboat, upcycled railway carriages, rural cabins and treehouses, a historic bunker, eco swimming retreat and plenty of quirky glamping sites; these beautiful escapes are all waiting for you this summer and beyond.
