Unusual holiday homes (24)

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.

We are delighted to hear you had a great birthday at Fort Leicester with your family and thought of it as your own castle during your stay. The property is located in a beautiful part of the Island on the north coast and the Fort makes the most of the views across Bouley Bay harbour and beyond.
We are currently in the process of replacing the wood burning stove as it had been damaged just before your stay. Thank you for taking the time to place this review and we hope you will stay with us again and maybe try another one of our properties in Jersey.

Thank you for your review, we do value all feedback and are delighted that you had a lovely time. Archirondel is an amazing place but you do need an adventourous spirit to stay there for longer than two nights. Next time you visit Jersey try one of our historical, self catering properties - privacy in the shower guaranteed.
