Editor’s Choice: Quirky Hotels
From a retreat favoured by Dylan Thomas to a suite in a windmill, views of Snowdonia to a former priory inhabited by Augustinian monks, the UK has a variety of unique hotel experiences to choose from. Each beautifully decorated and offering its own brand of warmth and hospitality, there's an abundance of details and experiences that make for a quirky getaway.
Whether it's interiors that inspire a little bit of magic or rooms that are geographically themed to transport you to an African safari or a Parisian Garret. Perhaps you will sleep in an observatory tower or a converted chapel. Travel to a lighthouse brought back from disrepair, or dine in a restaurant that's decorated like an antique chemist's shop. Or get whisked away with a night in a romantic Pullman carriage.
