Travelers looking to embark on a memorable holiday who are also open to trying new things will want to check out Host Unusual this summer.
Like the name suggests, the newly launched website serves as a directory for the most unusual accommodations in the U.K., whether it be a lighthouse or a faux prison cell.
Categories include "Vintage and Retro," "Eco-Stays," "Towers and Forts" and "Private Islands."
There's also a "Wildcard" category for the most unique properties, including the aforementioned prison-themed cell located in the basement of a Margate townhouse.
"I've been amazed at the diversity of unusual accommodation available in the U.K., as well as the ingenuity of the owners who have created some truly unique vacation spaces for a holiday to remember," creator Dawn Crawford said in a statement.

Citing a recent study of British travelers, Host Unusual noted that roughly two-thirds (67 percent) plan to take a "staycation" in 2016. What's more, nearly two-thirds (64 percent) of those planning to getaway within Britain would welcome an unusual accommodation.
In celebration of the website's launch, Host Unusual is offering travelers a chance to win a $362 (£250) vacation voucher that they can put toward a stay at any of the unusual properties featured on its site.
Host Unusual also announced it's teaming up with the Family Holiday Association and will donate five percent of every listing fee to the charity.
