I remember trying to convince my ex boyfriend to stay in a castle in Gloucester. Apparently it wasn’t a real holiday because it wasn’t abroad (he then balked at the prices of castles abroad and that was the end of that). But I like the idea of going on holiday in the UK. There’s loads of the country that I haven’t seen, and I really want to. There are some really unique hotels around UK, and here are the top three that I’m itching to try.
The Old Railway Station
Rail travel is something I’ve romanticised for years. It’s Brief Encounter’s fault. And the Orient Express. Old fashioned rail travel is so very adorable. Staying in a converted train station sounds lovely, especially when you can sleep in old train carriages. The Old Railway Station is within reach of Goodwood is Sussex and it’s top on my list of places to stay next.
Castle Cottage just looks like a normal place, doesn’t it? Until you find out that it has a treehouse! Not just a little one that you can only sit in, but big enough for a gorgeous double bed. Who wouldn’t want their own treehouse for the weekend? The hotel is also in Sussex. Are all the good boutique hotels in Sussex?
The House in the Clouds
The house in the clouds will take you to the clouds in Sussex. It was meant to be a water storage for Thorpness, but now, it’s a beautiful hotel. There’s something fantastical about it, isn’t there? It looks like it’s right out of an Enid Blyton story and any second now a wishing chair will fly past.
See? The UK is just as good at charming hotels as anywhere else. Can someone forward this to my ex-boyfriend?
