Stay somewhere with a difference
If you're looking for a few days away but don't want the usual hotel, cottage or guest house to stay in, take a look here for ideas for something entirely different.
Choose from a country house retreat or luxurious canvas cottages or how about staying on a boat and having a different view from your bedroom window every day?
