New to Host Unusual: Woodlands Treehouse, Dreamcatcher and Lavender Hill Holidays

3 January 2017

Our first confirmed new arrivals for 2017 are all places youcan visit during these cold winter months and get cozied up by a nice fireplaceor in your own hot tub – the perfect antidote for those winter blues and proof thatit IS possible to embrace and enjoy a UK winter. In Somerset we introduce threenew properties including a railway carriage and cottage, both of which hug thetracks of the steam railway.  We also have two new treehouses, so you canlegitimately let your head stay in the clouds, and a beautifully converted 19th century chapel nestled in some of Cornwall’s most idyllic scenery. 
The Woodlands Treehouse at Hothorpe Hall 
Starting on a high note (see what we did there?), highceilings, wood beams and secluded woodland abound at the gorgeous andthoughtfully designed Woodlands Treehouse at Hothorpe Hallin Leicestershire.  Its central location in the middle of England meansthat it is never too far away for a romantic weekend break.  You’llreceive a breakfast hamper on arrival meaning you can relax into your breakquickly without needing to leave your treetop hideaway, and with the enticingwood-burner and private hot tub beckoning as an oasis from the cool winterclimes, you’ll find it tough to say goodbye to this idyllic forestsanctuary! 
Heading South now, Dreamcatcher is in fact our most southwesterlyUK property to date.  As you’d imagine, this area of Cornwall is trulybeautiful; a scenic peninsula close to Sancreed Beacon, awash with hiddenbeaches, coves and rolling farmland.  Your accommodation is no lessspectacular, a converted 19th Century chapel on the outside, complete withstained glass windows, – and a luxurious interior drawing inspiration from thewild on the inside, with high-end details such as a Sonos integrated soundsystem and state-of-the-art entertainment.  In-room beauty/massagetreatments and private chef services can also be arranged – the perfect ingredientsfor an ideal Winter pampering weekend!
The Railway Cottage, Railway Carriage & The Treehouse atLavender Hill Holidays
Somerset is the setting for this trio of beautiful newproperties, and with a location close to Taunton they are well connected whilstenjoying a privileged spot in the countryside. The Railway Cottage has aspecial historical relevance, being built by Brunel himself whilst he wasconstructing the West Somerset Steam Railway – and yes you guessed it, thesteam locomotives pass by you as you relax in the cottage or in the private hottub within the pretty garden.  The neighbouring Railway Carriage is aseparate property, and a truly unique experience as its many carriage windowslook out over the tracks of the railway, perfect for the train-spotters amongstyou!  The decor is modern and comfortable and you also have a private hottub to enjoy, as well as a great country pub within walking distance. Last but by no means least, The Treehouse is a great escape from ground level,situated on a small farm with livestock and ponies roaming happily. Inside thehouse, the mysterious spiral staircase leads up to an octagonal master bedroom,where the leaves of the lime tree it is built around mingle with the cedar andtimber wooden structure. Here you can stargaze from the triangular skylight andenjoy life high in the canopy – pure wintry perfection!
