Alternative accommodation refers to certain self-catering based accommodation, which is perhaps more unusual. This can include:
- Wigwams & camping pods
- Nomadic structures (e.g. tipis, yurts, safari tents, ready erected tents)
- Railway carriages
- Shepherds trailers
- Romany caravans
- Camper vans
- Many of the guests using this type of accommodation enjoy the ‘getting back to nature’ experience, which is enhanced by the more rural situation of the accommodation. There is often a strong emphasis on sustainability with low energy and waste management initiatives and protection of the environment being at the heart of the business’ ethos.
