If you are planning to visit the UK and you are someone who prefers to stay in places a bit out of the ordinary, there are many choices available to you. There is certainly nothing wrong with traditional hotels and inns but if you are looking for something truly unique, you are sure to find the perfect place to stay. If you are planning to give the gift of travel, you will find many unusual places to stay and gift ideas for couples.

You can begin by looking at The Lighthouse Llandudno in Wales. This old lighthouse has been turned into an elegant hotel that offers a Victorian dining room where you can gaze down nearly 400 feet to the shore while you are dining. Traditional Welsh cuisine is served and you can reserve the lamp room which gives you a 280 degree view of the sea at all times.

If you want to give the gift of nature or experience it yourself, you can consider camping. Mighty Oak Tree Camping located in Cornwall is an excellent place to experience nature at its finest. You can spend your days climbing an ancient oak tree and your nights sleeping soundly in a hammock that is suspended high above the forest floor.

There are a number of old manor houses that have been transformed into boutique hotels, offering a luxurious accommodation experience. In Lower Slaughter, a Gloucestershire Village, you will find Lower Slaughter Manor Hotel which allows you to travel back in time to a more peaceful period. Another manor house is Whatley Manor in Malmesbury. This small hotel offers just 23 rooms and features antique furnishings to really give you a taste of yesteryear. A European spa and restaurants are also offered onsite.

In Oxford, you will find the Old Parsonage. This luxurious hotel was once a safe haven for priests persecuted during the Reformation in the 16th century. It now provides old-world charm in beautifully decorated rooms, a secluded walled garden and many amenities in close proximity.

Finally, if sleeping in a fairy tale castle has always been your dream, you will find Wester Ross in Scotland to be a good choice. The Torridon Hotel offers 58 acres of beautiful wooded lands and overlooks a deep sea loch. The castle is turreted and offers a number of amenities, including a whisky bar with over 300 malt whiskies from which you can choose.

It is not difficult to find a unique place to stay in the UK. Whether you are booking a reservation for yourself or you want to buy a gift experience for someone else, there are many places from which you can choose. Choose an adventurous getaway or a romantic castle setting, whatever suits your tastes and preferences. You are certainly not going to be without choices and there are a number of tourist companies that can help you to make your choice as well as gift experience companies that can help you to choose the perfect gift for someone special.
