Quirky Places to Stay in the UK

If you want a unique experience for the weekend or when visiting UK, you can choose some unusual places to stay. For those bored with a standard double, there is a list of accommodations out of the ordinary.

First on our list we have the London Bus, a 1964 Routemaster London double-decker, perfect for a summer holiday. It is situated in the Blackberry Wood in East Sussex, a campsite at the foot of the South Downs and only 8 miles from Brighton seafront, amazing for walks and explorations.

With a downstairs kitchen/dining area (Cooker/Fridge), a cosy upstairs sleeping/lounge area and a play area for the kids that can easily be transformed into a bedroom, the bus comes equipped with pots, pans, crockery & cutlery and can accommodate a family or 2 couples in 2 double beds. The only things you need are bedding and pillows. Also, there are no dogs allowed.

If you want to be captain of your own ship or let others take the helm, England’s boating holidays allow you to see England in a very special way. Explore England’s backwaters and enjoy the walks to the pretty riverside and canal side pubs. The Moonraker Canal Boats in Bradford on Avon offers you the luxurious package, including gourmet meals delivered to your boat and whirlpool baths. The Duke & Duchess in Coventry gives you the opportunity to let someone else take charge on the trip, while you see the countryside and cities as Liverpool and London, admiring the landscape, painting or taking a walk along the towpath.

The Blackberry Wood offers you another quirky place, the Holicopter, a converted 1965 Wessex Search and Rescue helicopter. With an outside kitchen area that comes with a fridge, a cooker, pots, pans and crockery, the plane can accommodate a family or two couples in 2 double beds. The helicopter is fully heated and the toilet and shower facilities are about 50 meters away.

At Skipwith Station in Yorkshire you can stay in a static train carriage in a station that was part of the Derwent Valley Light Railway, closed in 1985. Four to six persons can stay in either the “Derwent Flyer” or the “Derwent Mail”. There’s also “The Lady Deramore” which is an ex Virgin West Coast carriage. There are views over open countryside and ample parking. Each carriage has its own kitchen, lounge and bathroom.

If you want to reminisce your childhood surrounded by stunning countryside places, but in a luxurious accommodation visit The Treehouse, between Exmoor National Park and the Quantock Hills. You will enjoy a 5-star rated tree house with all the luxuries of a top hotel including Egyptian cotton linen, fluffy towels, flowers and a complimentary basket of seasonal local produce for you to enjoy.

Those amazing places are waiting for their guests, so for your next trip to UK book a room and enjoy a different kind of experience.
