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.
