New to Host Unusual: Ten Eclectic New UK Stays

24 July 2019

Cool off from the summer heat with a collection of eclectic places, all new to our portfolio and handpicked for their ability to offer something that little bit different from your average hotel or self catering holiday experience.
This list represents what Host Unusual is all about, in a beautiful, quirky microcosm. You could be gently plying the canal waters on an eco-friendly sustainable narrowboat, relaxing in a lakeside cabin retreat in Wales, reliving a bygone era in a 1920s carriage, retreating to a divinely renovated chapel amidst the forest, roaming the corridors of a grand, historic castle or looking out to sea from a remote lighthouse.

Whatever or wherever your unique space is, you’ll be assured an authentic experience and an added dose of much needed relaxation.

Go on, treat yourself to a Host Unusual holiday… you deserve it!
