Published 08/04/2020 New to Host Unusual: Fifteen Brand New Post-Lockdown Escapes


With the world slowing right down, under temporary lockdown, it gives us all the chance to collectively take stock and appreciate what we have, during challenging times.

Certainly for us here, we are appreciating the wonder of travel, and will never take the ease or freedom of movement for granted again once restrictions are eventually lifted. 

We also all need to aspire, and look forward to brighter days, so whilst the message is loud and clear to stay at home, we continue to showcase new and exciting locations to put on your future plans wishlist!  

This selection of 15 beautiful places to stay ranges from UFO houses, underwater suites, designer cranes and eco retreats to unique glampsites, mirrored cabins, expertly converted barns and more. Because we all need to dream, and when the time is right, we'll be ready to explore again!
