Hi all! It's Charlotte from the Marketing team again! I was lucky enough to have the opportunity to stay at some more fabulous quirky places whilst filming for our current competition.
These properties, and 2 others which I will write about soon, are offering great prizes so you can experience them for yourself (dont forget to sign up to have a chance to win!) and are based in the South-East of England. It was so much fun visiting them and meeting the property owners. 

sofa42Humble Bee isn't just any old couples getaway. This place has been designed and created by an artist making for a unique stay. Yvette has a beautiful space full of tall trees, mossy greenery and the sounds of a running stream and birds to accompany it. And here is where she has built this unique beehive property for couples to get away from their regular lives and experience the warm glow of being together somewhere different.




Being a hive shape, a tall building with not a lot of windows, you really are hidden away together. Either you can cosy up in the suspended bed at the top, or sit by the fire in the middle or descend to the kitchen and bathroom space, fling open the doors and be out on the decking wrapped up in the great outdoors. Out of the back door you will find your very own thermal bath (for 2) seemingly formed as part of the rocks behind.

IMG 1331COPPER POT BARN (with hot tub!) is perfectly located for a get together as its central within England, in countryside near Leamington Spa. If your guests are coming from different directions, everyone should be able to reach it without much trouble. The top quality barn conversion sleeps 8+2 in total, but as Tiny Wood Homes is at the same address, a stroll away, extra cabins could be booked if your numbers roll over that. These also feature hot tubs, and clever use of space and views over the fields.

There are some very appealing features to Copper Pot Barn that should make this a great option for your next get together.

The outdoor space with large hot tub, seating and lawn is a big plus. The hot tub works efficiently - just press a button an hour before you want to take the plunge to give it a boost. As its under cover it isn't weather dependent either. The garden is great if you want to bring along your dog too.


Congratulations to all! Here are our winners - 

Kelly Gilmartin from East Sussex who will stay at Belle Tout Lighthouse

Catherine Morris from Cardiff who will stay at Riverscapes 

Helen Bulford from Surrey who will stay at the treehouse at Blackberry Wood

Ami Langridge from West Yorkshire will stay at Hotel Pelirocco in Brighton

And many thanks to the rest of you - Keep signing up in 2019. Your turn may come!

Our QuirkyAccom Autumn Competition is now open! And this time we are not only offering great prizes but also have agreed to support Right to Play UK (registered charity number (1112404) - an inspiring charity supporting children in difficult situations in the Middle East, Asia and Africa through play, sport and education. We will donate to them £1 per competition entrant. So do tell you friends and family to sign up too!

Take a look at our Competition video which gives you a glimpse at all the possible prize locations you could end up visiting if you are selected to be one of our 4 lucky winners. All locations are in the South East this time - great for Londoners - but all the places are so unique and would make brilliant stays for anyone. Do add extra nights (at extra cost) if you are coming from further afield and if you wish to stay longer.


PHOTO 2018 09 21 20 23 13 1Glamping is an important part of our business so we were keen to show our faces at The Glamping Show in Birmingham this September to keep our finger on the pulse. What is trending, what will come next, what are people talking about?

I went with my niece Elena, who works with us at QuirkyAccom.com, and we wore our sweatshirts proudly announcing our directory of unusual places to stay and took our time meandering between stalls and installations and chatting to people.

What is Glamping?

Not just yurts and tipis and other innovative canvas creations. Glamping pods, cabins, shepherd huts and treehouses - in fact any innovative space that brings some home comforts to a stay close to nature. A sector of the glamping market has certainly moved towards the top end with many places undeniably luxurious, and aimed at those on a high budget, or with celebrations to be marked. But it is possible to Glamp on a lower budget too.

At QuirkyAccom we have several accommodation types which cover not just Glamping under canvas. I have added other links here that will help you select exactly what you are looking for under the same umbrella.
