Weird And Wonderful Places To Stay In The UK


Bursting with natural beauty and rich in history, sometimes there’s nothing better than a staycation right here in the UK. Whether you’re wanting to surround yourself with rolling hills and rugged clifftops or city streets and neon lights, the UK is home to a diverse landscape and equally as fascinating towns, villages and cities to explore.

If you’re looking for a truly unique experience; something a little different from your regular getaway, here are our top picks of some weird and wonderful places to stay in the UK.

1) The Joker Boat
Location: Liverpool

As far as hotels in Liverpool go, this one is a little unique. Located in the heart of Liverpool, in the city’s boating marina, The Joker Boat is a luxurious, 5-star barge, themed around Joker from Batman. Sleeping up to six people, the boat features stylish purple décor, its own bar and grill and is located close to all the city’s main attractions.

2) Appleton Water Tower
Location: Sandringham, Norfolk

This Victorian water tower was built in 1877 and served the purpose of improving the water supply to Queen Victoria’s nearby Sandringham House and estate. Nowadays, it’s possible to stay in the 60ft octagonal tower and live like royalty in one of the three converted bedrooms beneath the huge water tank. It’s quite the experience when visiting the charming Norfolk coast.

3) Treetops Treehouse, Fox & Hounds Hotel
Location: Eggesford, Devon

You’ll feel like you’ve woken up inside a real-life fairy tale when you stay in this magical, luxury tree house, surrounded by nature and wildlife. The fully-contained Treetops Treehouse overlooks a tranquil fishing lake and is built into a magnificent oak tree, thought to be over 250 years old. It features a king-size master bedroom with en suite, a separate children’s bunk room, a fully-fitted kitchen and a cosy lounge with a wood burner and French doors.

4) Dolly the Circus Wagon
Location: Llangrannog, Wales

Run away and join the circus – or at least pretend you have, anyway, when you stay in this former circus living wagon in the heart of the Welsh countryside. Located close to Cardigan Bay, Dolly the Circus Wagon was built in 1947 and has been restored and renovated to provide the ultimate circus experience. Self-contained and brightly decorated with a distinct and quirky circus theme, it’s a fun place to stay for a romantic weekend away.

5) Penny Rope Bed Chamber
Location: Margate, Kent

Spend a night in the slammer without breaking the law at this prison-themed bedchamber. Situated in the cellar annexe of a Georgian townhouse in Kent, Penny Rope offers accommodation unlike any other. Guests staying here take on the role of prisoner for the night and the cell comes complete with bunk beds, bars on the window and, of course, a lock and key. Don’t let that fool you, though. Despite the fun appearance, you’re guaranteed a very comfortable stay.

Where’s the most unique place you’ve ever stayed? Maybe one of the weird and wonderful accommodations above has given you some inspiration for your next staycation.
