If you go down to the woods today, you’re sure of a stay-surprise! Noticeable among our newly-added retreats is the pairing of magical woodland with dwellings you just wouldn’t expect to find there.
What do we mean, exactly? Well, you could jump aboard a lovingly-restored, dog-friendly boat nestled not on shimmering water, but amongst rolling Norfolk countryside.
Or head for enchanting French Alpine woodland and savour jaw-dropping views of the Aravis mountain range… from the gleaming comfort of a mirrored retreat that resembles a carefully-landed spaceship!
But if woodland surprises aren’t for you, how about bedding down in a nice reliable building instead? Somewhere like a medieval church, nestled in an ancient Essex village and boasting fascinating historic artefacts – like a church organ said to have belonged to the ‘English Mozart’.
You could also choose to cosy up in an authentic slice of history: a restored World War Two bunker with original features and spectacular views of a designated Dorset Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
Explore these unusual holiday finds – and many more besides – in our latest collection of conversation-starting retreats.
