12 unique places to stay in the UK

 In Get Inspired, Once In A Lifetime, United Kingdom

I prefer not to book ordinary accommodation when I’m planning an adventure. I fall so in love with quirky little huts, lodges, outdoor fire pits and beautiful views. If you’re anything like me, this post is for you.

Often the most important aspect of a trip lies in the company (or lack of it, if you prefer solo travel), but finding somewhere that isn’t just another standard hotel or apartment set up can really make your trip stand out from others that you’ve been on, or make it just that bit extra special for an occasion.

AirBnb is definitely the king (for me) of finding those unique hideaways, but in this post I’ve put together an additional list of accommodation to add to your ever growing bucket list (and to mine!)…

Here are 12 unique places to stay on your next trip to the UK…

Faraway Treehouse, Cumbria

Starry skies and in the most secluded canopies make a treetop stay perfect for a weekend away with a loved one or your best friend. With a balcony to enjoy the view, a river nearby for swimming, and close to Hadrian’s wall for a spot of culture, it has everything you want.

Price: from £165 per night, sleeps 2. For more info, click this link.

Canopy and Stars have so many amazing treetops available for you to stay in – check them all out here.
