The most extravagant Airbnb accommodations that you can find in the UK

Surely, many of you may know about the website Airbnb, but for those who don’t, we’ll explain it quickly here. Airbnb is a kind of social network where you can post, discover and rent homes. The company is American and puts hosts who rent their house or apartment (or part of it) in contact with potential guests who are looking for accommodation. The web acts as an intermediary and, in order to make a profit, offers insurance to both parties, charging guests 3% and hosts between 6% and 12%.

Currently, you can find more than 2 million properties in more than 192 countries on this website. There are many people who are tired of the blandness of hotels and choose this option when they travel, so many that since the creation of the website, there have been more than 80 million bookings. Therefore, we have prepared a list of the best and most unusual accommodation in the UK—perfect choices for your travels around the country.

If you don’t have an Airbnb account yet, you can create one using our invitation, which comes with a discount of 18 euros when you book an accommodation.

And now we’ll leave you with our list of the best Airbnb accommodations in Britain:
