Unusual holiday homes (1274)

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.

The place was lovely,couldn't fault it-the only problem was it was very near the main road and not very good for dogs. The owner was very obliging and helpful,couldn't have asked for more!!!… More

Glad you enjoyed your stay and apologies that the small garden is detached at the rear of the property meaning that dog owners have to walk their dogs in the open countryside, many seem to find this satisfactory but indeed some do not, depends on the type and age of dog and the enthusiasm of the dog walker i guess.
