Unusual holiday homes (1213)

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.

Thrilled that you liked our property and also that the children liked it too. I feel that it is important to provide things for children and so that they have plenty to occupy them and then Mums and Dads can relax. I am very fond of children and so understand their needs and enjoy providing for them. We have a beautiful area, with so much to see and do here, so hope that you will come back to explore further.

It is wonderful to know that our visitors are as impressed with the beauty of the area, (which is stunning) and especially so when our guests express the desire to come back. There are many many repeat visitors to this area, and now that our property has been open for the first complete year, we are looking forward to seeing some of our visitors return, as it is the best assurance that we did a good job. We look forward to seeing you again in 2015.
