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.

Thank you for your review and kind comments about the accommodation and the village (and us!).it is wonderful when our guests have enjoyed their experience at Mihangel or Myfanwy, and also the beach, which we love too.
I have tried to anticipate most needs and so it is great to hear that you found it well equipped.
There are plans afoot to give a separate seating area for Mihangel, and aim to achieve this as soon as possible, to afford a bit more privacy. Guests can still socialize if they wish.
Perhaps you may wish to return to Llwyngwril, and you will all be most welcome if you do! Just let us know.
