Unique Luxury Holiday Ideas

Dwell for a while in a luxury castle, on a houseboat, inside a quaint windmill or a French-style chateau. Make any holiday the fulfillment of a fantasy for the entire family by living in unique structures without ever leaving the UK.

A chateau such as the Helford Estuary Waterfront Estate with ten bedrooms and six bathrooms can sleep twenty-seven. It has its own beautiful private quay and beach, an indoor pool and spa. The games room provides wireless internet access and a pool/snooker table. The Estate is air conditioned, suitable for children of all ages and family pets are welcomed. The flora and fauna within the Helford Estuary make the holiday a joyful learning experience as well. Due to the size of the Estate and its distance from nearby sites, a car is recommended.

Enjoy watersports, fishing and a restful holiday on a houseboat in Weybridge. This houseboat has two bedrooms and can sleep six. A balcony/terrace is perfect for enjoying the lazy sway of the river with a spacious interior providing a quiet atmosphere for guests. The large saloon’s décor is comprised of cherry and mahogany woods with leather furnishings. This room opens onto the front deck to provide a seating area and table with a BBQ. There are two double bedrooms on board and a luxury bathroom. Smoking and pets are not permitted on the houseboat. The houseboat is self-catering but transportation isn’t necessary since the river ports are within cities.
