Two Gloucestershire locations named as some of the ‘most unique places to stay in the UK’

Two beautiful locations in Gloucestershire have made the list of the ‘top 20 most unique places to stay in the UK’.

Two destinations in Gloucestershire feature in a list of the ‘top 20 most unique places to stay in the UK’.

The Glamping Orchard in Longney and The Clock Tower Stow in the Cotswold town of Stow-on-the-Wold both made the list, coming in at number four and number 15.

The Gloucestershire locations ranked alongside those in Suffolk, Devon, the Orkney Islands and Cornwall – from windmills to Romani caravans – offering a special getaway beyond a traditional hotel.

The round-up from South Western Railway evaluated each location based on its Google rating, number of Google reviews and a ‘unique-ness’ score calculated by a panel of experts.

The Gloucestershire destinations beat competition from more than 2000 listings across the country to take two of the top 20 spots.
