Holiday season is really under way & I’m sure just like me you’ve spent the odd hour distractedly looking at holidays instead of your inbox at work. The problem is not only finding the time but also the funds to make the most of the sunshine.
Staying in the U.K for your holiday is becoming more commonplace and with the rise of AirBnB you can now find some unique and luxurious destinations that won’t break the bank.
An average nightly price to rent an entire place to yourselves in the U.K for two adults is £113. A relatively hefty charge especially if you’re self-catered. So we decided to do some digging and reveal some of our favourite unique holiday locations for under £50 in the U.K.
No this isn’t a canal boat or some form of floating home. This is quite literally a converted boat set amongst the Welsh Countryside with stunning views of the Cambrian Mountains of Snowdonia.
To top it all, if you book a stay here you’ll be staying in the 2013 Winner of Shed of the Year.
A unique twist on camping. Spend the night suspended in trees, and the day walking the miles of footpaths which surround the campsite. The perfect getaway from the hustle & bustle of London life.
Head down to Cornwall this summer for the ultimate glamping experience. Hiding in the walls of this Tipi is a simple but luxurious interior featuring what could be the comfiest oak framed bed – this could make a great romantic surprise for the other half!
Glamping is a relatively new concept & we love the range of places we can now stay. However some people just don’t want to stay in a tent or caravan, but that’s okay because hidden in the Welsh Countryside is this modernist cottage with it’s own hot tub. Head here with a group of friends and you can book for as little as £49 per night.
One of the stranger finds on AirBnb & a book lovers dream – this is the world’s first bookshop holiday/residency where you can play at owning your very own bookshop in Scotland’s National Book Town. Spend your days helping run the bookshop downstairs & your evenings in the flat above.
As every Londoner is acutely aware property price & affordable housing in the city is a real problem. It has however led to some fantastic homes being created, such as this one.
Looking over Notting Hill, this house can sleep up to 13 guests and features a roof terrace with a sauna and BBQ. If you dream of living in luxury in London, keep your eye on this property and you may get lucky enough to book a night here for just £25 (or £1262 if you pick the wrong dates!)
