New to Host Unusual: Ten Winter Warmers for Festive Getaways

25 November 2019

 The UK temperatures may be plummeting, but that doesn’t have to mean putting all plans of holiday adventures on hold. 

In fact we can feel a few pre-Christmas trips in the festive pipeline…

As luck would have it, we have a growing range of unique places to stay in the UK that are just as welcoming in the winter months as the summer.

Take this selection of ten beauties, ranging from coastal hot tub retreats to cosy huts and cabins, chic designer houses to awe-inspiring historic conversions. 

All are oozing with perennial appeal, so why not say an almighty ‘PAH’ to the cold and book yourself a winter-busting break today!
