Our unusual cottages really stand out from the crowd and are the
perfect choice when you fancy staying somewhere different.
We've combed the length and breadth of the British Isles and
found unusual cottages in all kinds of locations. We've found
cute little houses with curved, wonky walls, delightful railway
cottages, homes topped with traditional thatch, wooden houses on
stilts with panoramic views, designer log cabins, lavishly
appointed wings in manor houses - there's been a surprise in
store around every corner!
Some of our unusual cottages are really quirky and rather fun.
Think colourful décor and interiors brimming with funky
furniture and vibrant art, reflecting each owner's creative
personality. There are some really unusual cottage conversions too,
from railway carriages and signal boxes to chapels and banks - far
removed from the more common, though equally attractive, converted
Browse our full collection online and look out for unusual
cottages with striking architectural design, as well as
extra-special features such as hot-tubs and roof terraces. And
remember, no matter which unusual cottage you choose, expect each
one to be as individual as you!
