You Won't Believe Some Of These Wacky And Wonderful UK Airbnbs

Image by: Best Airbnbs

Airbnb has changed the way we holiday - but did you know they did luxury locations too? From weird and wonderful underground glamping to London's trendiest penthouse, here are the UK's best and wildest Airbnbs available right now. 

When planning a trip away, choosing accommodation is often one of the most stressful parts - you're conscious about not overspending, which is hard not to when you have to go out for every meal. That's why Airbnb has taken off as it has and revolutionised the way we holiday. By staying somewhere with your own kitchen you don't have to go out for every meal anymore, and by bypassing hotels in general you tend to make a big saving.

Another top reason to go Airbnb is that since you're staying in someone's home, you no longer feel as though you're a tourist. Being tucked away in a residential area or a secret countryside escape gives you an element of status above the all-inclusive hotel goers as you live like a local and your holiday experience is inevitably more authentic.

But staying in homes doesn't have to be boring. The UK has so many hidden Airbnb gems to visit, from majestic luxury locations to rooms unexpected buildings (and in some cases, no building at all!). There are plenty of imaginative stays that think outside the box wich are guaranteed to make your next getaway one to remember.

Scroll through our top finds on Airbnb in the UK where you'll never get bored.

A modern beach hut in Camber

Image by: Airbnb

The best place to sty in Camber? Definitely. Camber Sands is one of the UK's prettiest sandy beaches on the south coast. The problem is there aren't many places to stay by the beach that are stylish. That's why The Blue House is the best spot to stay in as it's right on the beach with fabulous architecture. It sleeps 8 so is perfect for kids or big groups and you can dip in and out of the sea as much (or as little) as you like. Take a trip to Rye a mere 10 minute drive away to do some antique shopping and take in one of England's most historical towns with the cutest coffee shops around. For around £500, it's one of our favourite spots in town.
