Three unique venues for a weekend getaway in the UK

Getting away for a weekend is something everyone enjoys, and offers respite after yet another hard week at work.

It’s important to try and give yourself a break every now and again, and if you’re lucky enough you might be getting away from home more than just a couple of times a year.

But if you are blessed enough to be enjoying several mini-breaks a year, there’s a hidden curse to be wary of – those breaks could become routine or boring. Staying in lookalike hotels is no fun, even if you are staying in different locations.

Fortunately, there’s a way around this problem, and that’s to book accommodation through a glamping UK provider like Quality Unearthed. The company has a wealth of unique and unusual properties throughout the UK, so we thought we’d take a look at just three of their quirky properties.

Treehouse holidays

Quality Unearthed has several treehouses on its books and one of them is the spectacular Bensfield Treehouse in Sussex. Just an hour south of London it offers amazing countryside seclusion, as well as access to the country’s capital city.

It’s equipped with all the mod-cons (as are all the treehouses on offer on the Quality Unearthed website) and is exceptionally comfortable.

Guests also get full use of a dozen acres of farmland and woodland surrounding the treehouse, making it the ideal place for an evening stroll to the local pub for dinner and back again. A fantastic way of getting back to nature without any discomfort.

Eco Pods

For conscientious travellers there’s often a worry about carbon footprints, and how travelling all around the country can negatively affect the environment. If that’s something that concerns you then why not stay in an eco-pod?

The environmentally friendly accommodation pods are carbon neutral yet still warm and comfortable.

Quality Unearthed has them across Sussex, Dorset and Somerset and arguably the pick of the bunch is the Adam pod, near Glastonbury.

It’s a retro-style cabin perfectly situated for glamping in Glastonbury, set in a quiet paddock facing the famous Glastonbury Tor. It looks intriguing and any mathematician worth their salt should be able to tell you why at a glance – it was designed and built by local craftsmen using the outline and dimensions of the famous Fibonacci spiral.

Gypsy Wagons

Quality Unearthed has dozens of gypsy caravan wagons offering accommodation, so why not enjoy a stay in one and live like a Romany?

One of the best is the Goldfinch Gypsy Caravan in the Wye Valley on the England and Wales border.

A stay here will be a quintessential romantic break as Goldfinch is a pretty wagon tucked into the corner of a field in a stunning part of the Wye Valley.

With detailed paintings of birds and fruit on the side the caravan is beautiful and makes for a quirky glamping alternative to the holiday cottages also available on site.
