Unique holiday home rentals

Sometimes when you’re booking a holiday home you’re looking for something a little bit special. A place that will stand out in your holiday photos and remain in your memory. From barns that balance like a seesaw to gypsy caravans and 1970s disco pads, here are four of the best.

Ollies 1 in Newquay, Cornwall (see pic above) is the perfect party shack. Stylishly decorated with Volkswagen camper van features, this beach-side villa is perfect for people looking to have guests over for a miniature disco. Best of all, it comes with a 52-inch TV, iPod docking station and mood lighting for the perfect night in with friends.

Roulette Retreat on the Scottish borders has a series of traditional gypsy caravans that have been decorated with immaculate vintage furniture to give it the authentic feel of a Romany caravan. Perfect for couple looking for something a little different, these retreats are beyond charming.


The Balancing Barn in Suffolk would be an ordinary holiday bungalow if it weren’t for the fact that it also looks a bit like a balance beam. Half of this holiday cottage in the middle of a nature reserve dangles from the edge of a plateau as though the designers made a horrible miscalculation. But of course they didn’t, the Dutch firm MVRDV knew exactly what they were doing with this elegant, if slightly bonkers silver-tiled holiday retreat.

The Island Hideaway on the Isle of Wight is like something out of a Beatrice Potter book. A gorgeous little retreat from a bygone era, this is the perfect place to escape in the summer.
