Unusual self catering holiday accommodation: stay in a castle, watermill, tree house, boat or windmill for a different experience.

If you are inspired by quirky or off-the-wall then one of our unusual holiday homes may be just the place for you to rent for your next self-catering holiday. Imaginative people have turned all kinds of buildings, boats and industrial structures into strange and amazing holiday lets. There is demand for novelty, albeit once.

A self-catering break in a lighthouse

A holiday in a lighthouse might sound thrilling and the views will be unsurpassable, however, after a week of climbing numerous staircases, the glass may wear a little thin. Wise lighthouse owners have extended living accommodation at ground level to reduce the number of stairs to climb. It is still thrilling to wake up in an upper bedroom and see seagulls swirling outside the window. You just have to ask yourself whether the effort is worth the view.

Castle holidays

Castles appeal to the romantics in us, all those stone corridors, flagged floors and a banquet hall at our disposal sounds grandiose. Because they are very large buildings, they are suitable for group accommodation, for weddings and events. However, we can dream.

Tree house holidays

A stay in a tree house high off the ground brings out the adventurer and child in us. We can indulge our inner child as we gaze out onto a leafy canopy and the ground far below. Tree houses are expensive to build and maintain, so expect to dig deep to afford a holiday in one.
