New to Host Unusual: 20 Adventures to Plan Ahead For

Host Writer
Published 22/01/2021 New to Host Unusual: 20 Adventures to Plan Ahead For


So here we are, still in the midst of Lockdown 3.0, yearning daily for bluer skies and summer holidays with our nearest and dearest, which, let's face it, is something we all greatly missed in 2020. 

Because we all need to dream and make plans, right? We think so too, which is why we have been busier than ever searching far and wide to bring you exciting new properties to fire your imagination and feed your already bottled up wanderlust. Think sun-soaked architect-designed havens and cave houses, bespoke roundhouses, unique cabins and extraordinary glamping retreats - all aching to be discovered and enjoyed when the time is right.

Take a few minutes this weekend to sit back and plan your post-lockdown adventures with Host Unusual, and think of it as fuel for the soul; that sweet escape that you so rightly deserve - after what feels like months and months of waiting!
