Truly Unique

This section showcases our most unique stays, quirky accommodation and one-off holiday properties in England, the UK and Europe.  Here you can book yourself a long weekend in a luxuriously converted horsebox, a family holiday in a former 1st class train carriage, or a romantic escape to a stylish but totally eco-friendly retreat. For all group sizes, budgets and interests!


Imagine yourself moored on a peaceful waterway amongst beautiful landscape - perhaps you fancy a stay in a houseboat on a Devonshire lake or on a former tall ship in the Scottish Highlands. Whatever the case, a boat holiday will certainly provide a one off holiday experience....

Cave Houses

Ancient cave houses which have now been converted into unique and comfortable holiday lets.  Take a look at our collection.

Church Conversions

Just imagine - your next holiday could be in a converted church with an indoor pool and sauna....A strange thought, but why go with the norm, when you can find something really quirky for your next holiday rental!


If you want to holiday, but really don't want to leave a massive carbon footprint behind then have a look at our portfolio of eco-houses - every one of them an education and a lesson to us all in being green.....


A holiday in a lighthouse is the stuff of dreams - a fun, quirky and unique property, with a guarantee of sea views. It doesn't get much better than that. Find yourself a cosy lighthouse hideaway and enjoy a unique holiday.

Trains & Train Stations

It doesn't get much more one off than this. Have a holiday in a train, stay in a train station – the children will love it, and of course often you'll have the public transport system on your doorstep. Railway carriage holidays for your next trip away is definitely something to tell your friends about.

There are some holiday properties that just can’t be classified because they’re so distinctive and unusual – this is where the Truly Unique places go! Of course, all One Off Places accommodation is special but this collection comprises some really quirky places to stay. Have you ever wondered what it’s like to stay in a lighthouse? Well now you can allow your dreams about crashing waves and shipwrecks to be realised. What about a holiday in a church conversion? These old buildings, with their impressive architecture, vaulted ceilings and stained glass windows, make wonderful rental properties with a difference.

If you’re looking for a holiday cottage with a conscience then how about a stay in an eco-house? These properties are really quite extraordinary because not only are they sustainable and environmentally friendly but they are also, more often than not, more luxurious and comfortable than anywhere else! Or if you want to hark back to a simpler more rural existence then look for a traditional cave house in Spain, Italy or Greece. And then of course you’ve got unusual places to stay like converted train stations (some of which still have trains passing through them) and train carriages, which can be set down pretty much anywhere, be it on a seafront or in a field. The Truly Unique holiday rental category does exactly what it says on the tin!
