Unusual places in Wales

Don't listen to the comedians who love to knock the Welsh. The truth is Wales has much to offer, including some fun and funky places to  stay. Like the Airstream caravan (above and below)

Under the Thatch, a holiday rentals company owned by Dr Greg Stevenson, an architectural historian, offers stays near the Cardigan Bay coastline in a refurbished 26ft model, Blaengors Airstream, which dates from 1964.


Then there's Living-room, a collection of five gnarled treehouses in 200 acres of bluebell-carpeted woods near the market town of Machynlleth, in Powys. The newest addition to the cluster is Pen Y Bryn, at 35 feet up in six ancient oak trees, which provides accommodation for five, designed by Peter Canham, a former exhibit designer at the Science Museum. With double beds and sturdy insulation, and en-suite Swedish compost toilets, there is little need to rough it here.
