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.

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
