From shepherd’s huts to canal boats, there are all kinds of interesting places to stay if you fancy something a little different.
But a new campsite in the Netherlands has gone one step further with its quirky accommodation – offering guests the chance to stay in a former grain silo, a tiny greenhouse, an electric cart and a small house made of floating bricks.
Culture Campsite, located just a stone’s throw from Rotterdam city centre, is described as a part-sustainable city campsite and part-interactive exhibition.
There are a number of different rooms to choose from, which each sleep 2-3 people. There’s Val Ross which is a former animal silo with a hatch, bed and window, a bee-inspired house called Honeycomb, a tent-meets-greenhouse combo called Expedition North Cape, an electric steel agricultural wagon called (S)low tech and more.
Elsewhere there’s Sleeping Pod which is a raised object resembling a spaceship, made from a former cattle shelter. There’s also Floating Bricks built with recycled building materials with glass, which creates an optical illusion.
There are 11 different types of accommodation to choose from – each of which has been created by artists and designers.
The website says: ‘At Culture Campsite you’ll sleep in one of the different architectural objects made from upcycled and waste stream materials.
‘They are smaller than a tiny house, more exciting than a tent and different from all glamping accommodations.’
These unique little spaces work well for social distancing too as they are all spread out and the company cleans each ‘house’ after every visit.
For those looking for something a little closer to home there’s a Harry Potter-themed cottage which has been designed to look like the Gryffindor common room.
There’s also a haunted house for Halloween which has its own ‘murder hole’ and mini jail.
