New to Host Unusual: Twelve Northern Delights

12 February 2020

We have our sights firmly set on the far north of England and Scotland in our latest update, with a new dazzling selection of properties, each one as rich in character and spirit as its blessed location. So join us as we drop the pace and explore some of the delights of this beautiful part of the world.

Now all you need to do is choose your base, be it a brand new luxury treehouse, uniquely styled contemporary beach cabin, historic former icehouse, urban houseboat, turfed roof idyll, romantic folly or roundhouse, architect-designed wow-factor retreat or perhaps a handcrafted hut – complete with lambing experience!

What’s not to love about this diverse bunch? Time to start planning some northern adventures, post-haste!
