New to Host Unusual: Last of the Summer… Adventures!

September is, for many, a great time to travel.

With the kids back at school prices start to come down, but the climate still lends itself to some mighty fine adventures in the late summer sun.  
We have unearthed some beautiful places to retreat to, so why not take a peek?  

From luxury treehouses to glamping huts and yurts, renovated narrowboats, cave retreats, windmills and geodomes, we cater for all tastes and budget ranges, so if you’re looking to eke out the summer and embark on a unique escapade somewhere truly extraordinary, then look no further!
