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.

Please to hear you enjoyed your stay and will be returning in the future. Some of the garden furniture has been replaced and we are completely overhauling the garden area in winter with a new patio. The fridge freezer I think may of needed tuning up. The racing game has had the steering wheel replaced that I think was done while you were there so all ok now hopefully. We are always doing upgrades and maintenance and we aim to have everything functioning correctly but sometimes things do go wrong and we do all we can to rectify the problem ASAP. Always appreciate feedback from guests and thank you for the review

We are sorry you found The Chapel disappointing however, the property description does state quite clearly within the listing "..This property is open plan design – the only internal walls being around the Bathroom!.." and we feel that we have demonstrated this very clearly in the photographs provided. We are not sure what more we can do to make guests more aware of the internal arrangement of the property? Any suggestions would be welcome. We hope your next holiday let is more suited to your requirements.

It is fantastic to hear you had such a great stay at the Tower and that you found it so unique and perfect for your needs. In particular I am delighted to hear you thoroughly enjoyed the views over from the roof terrace and that the effort in getting up there was worth it!
I am sorry to hear you did occasionally get disturbed on a night. As I mentioned in a previous response we are in talks with English Heritage to have secondary glazing installed and this has now been approved so installation is expected this month (November 2014). If you do decide to stay with us again in the future the sound noise issues should be fully resolved by then.
I do hope you can stay at the Tower again in the future and many thanks for your very kind words regarding your stay.
