Unusual Places To Stay

We have a lot of great hotel deals online at the moment but we also have some great short break deals that aren't quite hotels as such. Whether a camping trip, a stay in a farmhouse or the hire of a camper van of some kind, all these types of experience are here in our unusual breaks category.

Our unusual escapes are difficult to categorise but they tend to fall into a few broad categories. First we have our camping breaks. These are high-end luxury camping, or glamping as it has become known, and we also survival breaks too where you learn outward bounds skills. In addition, there are farm houses and country hotels.

When looking for a short break it's important to work out whether you will be able to fit your little holiday in with work, or if you'd have to take time off to go. Take a look through our selection of unusual weekend breaks if you'd like something where you can go away and be back by Monday.
