New to Host Unusual: Ten of the Best UK Late Summer Escapes

18 August 2019

 With the end of the school holidays drawing ever closer, that doesn’t mean we have said goodbye to our summer staycations yet – quite the opposite!  

We have indeed been rather busy this end scouring the land for new and exciting places to venture to, and many still have great availability towards the late summer months.

Four fascinating Welsh retreats beckon – enticing treehouses Snowdonia, grown-ups only luxury yurts, a unique architect-designed boathouse by the sea and a family-run off-grid dome escape. 

In Yorkshire we have a brand new bespoke treehouse, whilst in Suffolk gleaming airstreams await.

A twitcher’s dream cabin in Scotland, a Shropshire dome retreat, a cutting-edge water tower conversion in Devon and a narrowboat adventure in Northamptonshire complete our eclectic line-up.

So check your diaries and prepare to up your summer ante while there’s still time!
