The House in the Clouds, Thorpeness, Suffolk, England
It’s the epitome of cozy English Country style – dozens of feet up in the air. The House in the Clouds was once a plain old water tower but was remodeled into a vacation rental with what looks like a conventional farmhouse perched on the top. With 5 bedrooms, 3 baths and a great room overlooking the Thorpeness Golf Course, this rental is perfect for families and large groups.
The Pavilion, Hyde Park, London, England
Describing itself as a “fashion rock n’ roll hotel’, Hyde Park’s Pavilion has no qualms bragging about its many celebrity guests on its website, who have included supermodels like Karen Elson, bands like Duran Duran and Hollywood royalty like Leonardo DiCaprio. Even with its out-there themed rooms like Casablanca Nights and Honky Tonk Afro, the most amazing thing about this chic London hotel is its prices, which start at just under U.S. $100.
La Rosa Gypsy Camp, Whitby, England
If you’re a free spirit with a sense of adventure, England’s got you covered with a number of gypsy caravan hotels including ‘La Rosa Campsite Extraordinaire’, where visitors can stay in recycled, reclaimed lodgings like gypsy wagons and circus tents. Paying tribute to the beauty and environmental sensitivity of its setting, the North Yorkshire Moors National Park, the camp uses only candles and fairy lights at night and has limited facilities like composting toilets and showers in a converted byre
Hotel Missoni, Edinburgh, Scotland
The Hotel Missoni is every bit as fashionable as you’d expect from one of Europe’s top design houses, and Missoni’s iconic patterns don’t let you forget for one moment who crafted the interiors. The hotel is located just off the Royal Mile in the Old Town, and the doormen will great you in Missoni-designed kilts. The views of the city from the upper suites are quite a treat.
