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.

It was unfortunate that the Husband of this party had an attitude on arrival complaining it was quiet here and asking where the nearest water park was , He explained they hadn't stayed inland before , so I don't think the culture shock of being in a real part of Spain appealed to him and he took it out on his extended family and us .
We make it quite clear the maximum we will allow is 5 people and yet although their had 4 on arrival , They added an extra 2 teenagers afterwards . Then promptly had a party with about 16 other people here, we are not sure if even more stayed that night , I think the fact we lived so close and knew about their actions didn't go down too well .
After 4 days of their 11 day stay , we got an email saying they had found somewhere else to stay and had left the key in the door, they at no time complained or mentioned any issues to us or we would have looked at the mystery smell , of which nobody else has complained about , even though we have had guests staying here nearly everyday since May . Although we do allow dogs to stay it has been sometime since any have been in the house , so this again was a false statement . The sofa has been covered and the cover is washed regularly, although the cover had been taken off and possibley used as bedding for the unauthorised guests . We never have claimed it is a big pool but it seemed to keep their 4 children and extra guests entertained everyday they were here .
I hope that they enjoyed the rest of their holiday on the Costas , where they could find the required fish and chips shops and British bars . I think our write up makes it quite clear that if you are looking for that sort of holiday , you will be disapointed staying here .
I would also like to add that putting a drinking glass , wrapped up in the spare bedspread in the twin bedroom was childish and thankfully we found the joke , before any child could have gotten cut by broken glass . We also cleaned up after their party , after being eventually informed they had done a runner .
