Roll up, roll up!
Our latest list of retreats is filled with storytelling and showmanship – elevating your holiday to awe-inspiring levels of wonder.
For starters, how about bedding down in a cosy 19th century circus wagon nestled in the rolling Andalucian hillside? Adorned with red-and-white striped walls and vintage posters, you can enjoy all the fun of the Big Top itself.
Closer to home is a quirky tree-treat inspired by an iconic and much-loved fantasy tale, complete with an al fresco hot tub and rustic fairytale décor to make you feel like a character from the book!
You could also choose to take a gentle trip back in time, with a first-class stay on board a vintage-styled railway coach. Nestled on the platform at a North Herefordshire station originally built in the 1890s, you’ll also be surrounded by picture-perfect countryside.
But if you really want to watch your cares sail serenely away on the water, then how about spending time in a gorgeous glass-fronted pod on the shimmering Shropshire Union Canal (with the world’s largest ice-cream parlour close by)?
Other heavenly hideaways you’ll discover here include an authentic aviation-themed hotel, and an architect-designed Hebridean cottage with idyllic views out to the Minch. Maybe you’ll even spot the mythical Blue Men of the Minch floating on the water!
We know… choosing your favourite from this amazing list will be hard, but why not brew a cuppa and give it a go?
