1. Yellow Sub, Liverpool.
We've all heard the song Yellow Submarine by The Beatles, but now you can really live on one! Well, for a night or so anyway. This unique experience takes place in the heart of Liverpool Yacht Club Marina, meaning you can walk to all attractions located in Liverpool City centre. The submarine was originally built around the concept of the one in film The Hunt For Red October. In the submarine you will find lots of memorabilia from the mod scooter from the film Quadrophenia to The Beatles gold discs. Furnishing are based on the suite from the Burj Al Arab in Dubai. Included is a double, single and double sofa bed, and each room includes a 52-inch TV. You're probably wondering if a bathroom would even fit on here, well it does, and includes a power shower! The Yellow Sub does get booked quickly so booking in advance would be a good idea!

2. Stow Windmill, Norfolk
Until recently, this Windmill was just a tourist attraction which stands proudly on the North Norfolk coast, 400 yards from a cliff top – you can only imagine the views! Today it stands as a living space spread over three floors with a kitchen attached. With only one bedroom, this is perfect for couples sent on a romantic break! There is plenty to do with the Norfolk Broads being close by, where you can hire boats or just enjoy local shops and restaurants. Budgets can vary for this dependant on time of year and length of stay.

3. Camp Katur, Yorkshire
This Glamping village in Kirkington can offer various types of accommodation, with each being quirky in their own way. But we've picked out the Unidome Woodland Hide, which is a 360-degree clear panoramic dome, surrounded by woodland it's the perfect place for some zen time whilst stargazing under the duvet.

4. A Little Bit of Rough, Rutland
If glamping isn't your thing, then perhaps a luxury canvas lodge might be? Don't let the name put you off, these lodges are completely private located in a woodland near Uppingham. They can even sleep up to 6 people if you wanted to make a group trip of it! However, you won't know the exact location as it remains a secret until your booking is confirmed, adding all that extra excitement. Sit back and enjoy the surrounding of nature out on your own large decking complete with a BBQ.

5. Spitbank Fort, Portsmouth
A sea fort that was first built for protect Portsmouth harbour from an attack on Napoleon III, is now a luxury venue that can be used for overnight stays or for any other exclusive use. It has many luxurious qualities such as a swimming pool, a hot tub, sauna and steam room. Don't worry we're not expecting you to swim to it, it's accessible by boat and only take 30 minutes from either Portsmouth or Southampton. There are 8 bedrooms all of which include deep bathtubs, one room even has a waterbed! You'll never be bored with access to a bar, restaurant and arcade/games room, packages include champagne reception, a buffet lunch, five course diner and an English breakfast.
