GoUnusual properties are often smaller properties with added charm and intrigue, so they are generally booked far in advance for weekends and holiday periods. However - all hotels have last minute cancellations and some offer added incentives and special offers.
Here is a selection of the latest updates from our members from around the world.
Book RailHoliday Harvey carriage for the summer holidays
The week of the 26th August, and the following week beginning the 2nd September have just become available due to a cancellation.
Harvey is divided into two (but is only let to one party at a time). If you book both ends it will accommodate two families. It has two of everything; kitchens, lounges, double bedrooms (one with extra bunk), toilets and showers, as well as an additional bunk room to sleep 4. With a dividing door between the two ends, it's a great set up for several generations of the same family, for two families who want to holiday together, or for families with teenagers.
Then there's the outside space! Half an acre of enclosed wildlife and formal gardens, with four swings, swingball, signal box playhouse/ birdhide and campfire area.
It's only twenty minutes walk to the beach, and just a minute's walk to the many restaurants, cafes and shops of the Foundry Square area of Hayle, and there are surf schools close by. Hayle is within easy reach of St Ives, Penzance, Truro and the attractions of West Cornwall.
Harvey welcomes pets too at £20 a week. The cost of the week beginning the 26th August is £1300 for one end only (the other end will remain empty), or £1420 for the whole carriage. There's a £25 discount if all or part of your party come by train.
