Unusual holiday homes (3000)

Looking for something outrageously different for your next holiday? Then take a look at these holiday castles, windmills, yurts and manor houses that are all available for you to book and make your holiday an extraordinary one.


And there’s plenty to choose from: you could set your loved one's heart racing with a fairy-tale break to a French chateau or rent a houseboat in Amsterdam with your pals. Or how about escaping to a cosy log cabin in the mountains, or going glamping on a yurt holiday in Devon or Cornwall.


If stunning and unusual architecture is for you, rent a regal castle in the Scottish Highlands, a quirky lighthouse by the sea or return to a bygone age on a windmill holiday in Greece.

What charming, friendly and interesting people my latest guests were. Peter and shaun ( sorry, is it Shaun OR Sean ? )were, sadly, only here for 2 nights but we still managed to get to know each other quite well and I, for one, thoroughly enjoyed our brief get-togethers on the patio. Their pet Tibetan Spaniel came with them on their week-end break and he was the most placid, well behaved dog I've ever encountered - a real cutie. He's certainly set a very high bench mark for all future canine guests to match upto ! Peter and Shaun were totally respectful of the cave house, leaving it in an immaculate condition. I would absolutely recommend them to anyone as guests and truly hope that I will have the pleasure of welcoming them again in the future. So sorry not to have any availability to coincide with your birthday in August, Peter. However,if I am lucky enough to see you both later in the year, I'll push the boat out then and do a liitle, belated birthday treat for you.
