Whether you’re taking a trip to the beach or the countryside, you can find a cheap rental home to keep your sheltered through the night. No matter what your vacation plan is, you can find a home away from home. Check out these listings from TheGuardian.

Eco-barn with sea views: PEMBROKESHIRE

Set in nine acres of farmland, Tân y Garn is a newly converted stone-built barn with sweeping sea views over Whitesands Bay. The open-plan living space is on the first floor to make the most of the panorama, while the two bedrooms and bathrooms are downstairs. A rugged outcrop rises behind the property, and there’s a sunken lawn and patio for lounging and barbecues. A choice of wild beaches and the Pembrokeshire Coast Path are nearby. Larger groups can rent Upper Porthmawr next door (sleeps eight). Eco-touches include solar panels, there’s Wi-Fi and Sky TV, and dogs are welcome.
Sleeps four, £1,850 a week in July/August, £695 low season, 01437 721674, experience-mor.org

Amid the dunes: NORTHUMBERLAND

New this spring, sitting among sand dunes on a beautiful stretch of the Northumberland coast, Sandhills is a two-bedroomed, light-filled, chalet-style house with Bamburgh Castle a dramatic backdrop. The family-friendly beach has won awards for water quality and cleanliness, and is perfect for long walks, surfing and windsurfing. Rock pools will keep little ones entertained for hours.
Sleeps three, £595 a week in July/August, £395 low season, 01573 226711, crabtreeandcrabtree.com

Splendid isolation: LAKE DISTRICT

Situated near the bottom of the steepest road in England, Bird How in Holmrook is in a super-remote location in one of the least-visited parts of the Lake District, above the river Esk. Small and rustic, it’s perfect for a back-to-basics stay and for hikers wanting a challenge without the crowds. There’s a twin bedroom and another with bunk beds (bring your own sheets) but there’s no bathroom – use the kitchen for washing, and the toilet’s in the former cow barn in the basement of the cottage.
Sleeps four, £642 a week in July/August, £335 low season, 0344 800 2070, nationaltrustholidays.org.uk

Private meadow: SUFFOLK

New this year, the Hobbit Box is a cleverly converted wooden horsebox in its own wildflower meadow on a 115-acre glamping site, Secret Meadows. With handcrafted wooden furniture, vintage velvet curtains and a Middle Earth theme (from goblets and round windows to Tolkien-themed prints on the walls), it’s a total charmer. There are two double bunks, a wood-burning stove, private loo and shower and wooden deck for moonlit nights underneath the oak trees. The site is run by The Sinfield Nature Conservation Trust and there are nature trails through old woodland and meadows, and bushcraft and Wild Way workshops too.
Sleeps four, £894 a week in July/August, £779 low season, 01394 382992, secretmeadows.co.uk
