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, Russell. I am so pleased that you were all comfortable, and enjoyed your visit to South Snowdonia. You travelled a long way from London for just two nights, but you evidently achieved what you set out to do, which was to go up Snowdon (little clues left with printed routes up the mountain!). I hope that now you have seen this beautiful area, that perhaps may consider tackling Cader Idris in the future, which is very close by. Or any of the other mountains in the area, of which we have no shortage! You will be most welcome if you want to stay again, available all around the year!
