Unusual Escapes and Short Breaks

Explore the wild, the wonderful and the truly unique spaces of Britain with one of our unusual escapes. From secluded luxury in Cumbria to cliff camping in Devon, we’ve got a host of exciting places to unwind and hang out, literally. Blending country quirks with adventurous breaks, get back to nature with an overnight stay that’s truly out of the ordinary. Sleep amongst the wilderness, next to fishing lakes, flourishing gardens and towering treetops. Or, hold onto your homely comforts at a gracefully-themed hotel. If you’re all about that ‘once-in-a-lifetime’ gift, why not spoil someone with a surprising short break? Browse our very best unusual short breaks and feeding your wanderlust cravings.

Unusual Places to Stay in the UK

If the thought of gazing up at the stars just metres from your bed or waking up to the smell of fresh pine trees sparks a light in your eyes, then a quirky stay may be just what you need. Luckily for you, the UK is home to an array of astonishing escapes. From Norfolk and Herefordshire to rural Wales and beyond, pick a spot and prepare for a minibreak to remember. Boasting eco-friendly qualities and endearing wildlife on the doorstep, stay in a wigwam and delight in the simple things in life. Or, soak up the magic of a starry night and relax in a steaming hot tub. Retreat to a stylish bell tent or a traditional yurt with a bottle of fizz to share. A luxury glamping break in the woods will give you the best of both worlds.

Unique Short Breaks

Whether you’re searching for a quirky countryside stay or glamorous break at a boutique hotel, we’ve just the experiences. From the timid footsteps of wildlife to the enchanting echoes of the midnight breeze, give the Wi-Fi a rest and lose yourself in a unique countryside escape. Overlook peaceful lakes in a heated camping pod or discover the beauty of Britain’s landscapes with a national park minibreak. From grand castles and quaint cottages to houseboats and more, celebrate a special anniversary or birthday in an equally special location. Transform your perspective and discover something new with an unusual escape for two. Book a unique short break now and you won’t look back.
