In fact, Airbnb recently revealed a distinct desire for unusual places to stay among families in Britain for 2017, with affordability proving a priority as well as good old-fashioned options like glamping to modern and eco-friendly holiday rentals.



Booking a short break with a twist in the UK is a terrific way to enrich children's lives and encourage families to expand their horizons on home soil, while discovering that it doesn't cost hundreds of pounds or take jetting off to exotic locations to create happy memories.

With this in mind, we've selected a few of our favourite wacky stays for families in Britain, including the treehouse to end all treehouses, a safari tent with no WiFi but just miles of fields to explore and a lookout tower by the sea for a beach holiday you'll remember for years to come.
