New to Host Unusual: Exciting Getaways for your Post-Lockdown Bucket List

9 November 2020

Lockdown. One of the defining terms of 2020, along with furlough, bubbles and Zoom.
But whilst, for some of us, our movements are restricted yet again over the next few weeks, we refuse to let it put a halt to our planning and we’re keeping the post-lockdown holiday dream alive by continuing to add many new and exciting places for you to (eventually) explore. 

Clock towers, rustic horse boxes, lightships, huts, roundhouses, designer beach houses and cabins, barns and treehouses – they all combine to inspire you in this latest round-up of new recruits.

Don’t lose hope – brighter and happier holiday times await you in 2021! Author: Alex Wilson | Host UnusualImage: Pilot House | Scottish Highlands
