• Stiltz

Aptly named, this holiday home in Marsham, sits on the side of a hill on stilts. Owners Christine and Paul Inch created the unique structure and have turned it into the ideal spot for a romantic getaway, complete with a hot tub under the stars, uninterrupted countryside views, glass balcony and sun deck. The property can accommodate up to three people and prices start from £115 per night. Mr Inch said: 'Airbnb works for us, as it simplifies our life. We have a holiday home at the bottom of the garden and the app allows us to reach a wide audience to whom we can rent out our space for a few days a week. So far we've had more than 60 guests this year and many have come down from London.'
