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.
