3 incredible quirky UK staycations to take this winter

If you’re looking for a quirky hideaway or remote retreat to escape to for a well-deserved rest, stop the search, because we've found the ultimate getaways with a difference for you.

The Hideaways brands are a hotbed of interesting hotspots to visit across the UK. Featuring over 800 places to stay, spread over some of the most beautiful parts of the country, including Cornwall, Cotswolds, Dorset, Norfolk and Suffolk the brands not only boast cosy cottages for two, large houses for families, or groups of friends, they also feature some of the UK’s quirkiest and unique places to stay.

Why not bed down for the night in THE Fraggle Rock lighthouse (for those who remember!) – located down in Cornwall, the accommodation is very private and boasts its very own observation room. Cornwall Hideaways feature 13 lighthouses (with many welcoming dogs and children) where guests can enjoy fresh sea air, the sound of crashing waves, spectacular coastlines with dramatic cliffs, sparkling waters and miles of sandy beaches.

Other alternative accommodations include secluded shepherd’s huts in the middle of the woods, safari tents, yurts, historic retreats and even a property with a geodesic dome complete with super king-sized bed and telescope for stargazing under the night sky.
