Published 27/06/2022 UK and Global Retreats With Week-Long August Availability


"It's too late to book a summer holiday now! We'll just have to wait until next year."

Do those words sound familiar?  

It's so easy to feel that if you're not combing travel websites at the start of the year - or let's face it, even before - then you're going to miss out on all the best places.  

Especially now, when it seems like everybody you meet is scrambling to get away from it all... and with very good reason!

But if you're still dreaming of a summer holiday, we've got you covered. Scattered across the UK and the rest of the world, the following retreats aren't just delightfully unique.

They've also got August availability for a whole week or more!

So get ready to discover some incredible stays that offer a little something for everyone. For example, in the UK you can take the family to a cheerfully converted school bus in rural Suffolk, or maybe relax with your loved one in a luxury Devon treehouse.

If you're willing to travel, then how about a quirky glamping retreat, set in a fairytale-like Swedish pine forest... or even an upcycled sleeping pod, 10 minutes away from Rotterdam's city centre?

(Simply choose your favourite, then get packing!)
