New to Host Unusual: Ten Trips to Fire your Imagination

16 October 2019

We are firm believers here in teleporting yourself away from the ennui of daily routine and sparking a bit of fire, fantasy and eager anticipation every time you set off on a new adventure. Surely that’s what all holidays should be about, right? 

Well, whilst it’s true that you need a little imagination to help it along, there’s no denying that waking up somewhere spectacular feeds that creative spirit and energy in all of us. Our latest selection of newly added properties promises to do exactly that.
Wake up just a whisker away from exotic and endangered animals, or amidst remote dunes achingly close to vibrant marine life.

Start your day inside a fairytale folly, a fantasy hobbit home built into the hillside, an original 1930s timewarp Art Deco building, or perhaps even a first-class railway carriage, blissfully secluded from the world. 

Maybe even inside a quirky camper van with its own private hot tub? 

Whatever your storybook, you can easily choose an adventure to suit you; just turn the first page and let the fun commence!  Main image: Gulliver the Quirky Camper | Nr Canterbury, Kent
