New to Host Unusual: Creative Castle Glamping, Luxe Eco-Pods, Dreamy Woodland Dens, and a Quirky Vintage Bus!

12 July 2022

Our latest collection of retreats are all about the scenery… inside and out.

Often referred to as ‘Scotland in miniature’, the Isle of Arran offers one of the most breath-taking vistas in the UK. And when you experience it from the hi-tech comfort of a luxury eco-pod, you’ll be in holiday heaven.

If you’ve got the whole family in tow, why not upgrade your usual camping break to a fairytale stay in a handmade ‘castle’ instead? Secluded in rural Lincolnshire, you can survey your lush green kingdom like the budding royalty you are!

Or how about a wow-factor Wiltshire retreat with a hygge-infused ‘alpine lodge’-feel… and a wraparound terrace that overlooks an idyllic lake?

Just you, your loved one, and your four-legged friend? Hop aboard a quirky vintage bus, with full self-contained facilities and plenty of space for a doggy crate. Secluded in North Cornwall’s glorious Camel Valley, your next stop is the golden-sand coast!
With all this and more, you won’t want to miss our latest additions to Host Unusual!
