Quirky Cottages

 

Fancy a self-catering holiday in a quirky and unusual holiday property? Who wouldn’t say no to a holiday with friends in a luxury lighthouse or a beautifully restored Napoleonic Fort? Search here to find an architecturally unique holiday cottage for a more than usually memorable holiday with the family or friends.  The UK has a splendid choice of distinctive and unusual character cottages that will appeal to those looking for something slightly different from a traditional house. 

While quirky cottages are not the ‘everyday’ holiday property – but they still offer the same standards, facilities and amenities that you would expect to find in any decent holiday property worth its salt. Types of out of the ordinary cottages include (but are not limited to): * Lighthouses               * Windmills                 * Restored railway stations and carriages * Castles and Forts.    * Shepherds Huts       Narrow Boats * Tree-houses               * Signal boxes               Follies 

View this collection of distinctive holiday properties to find one with that ‘must-stay’ funky factor for a long holiday or just a weekend break.
