Where you stay when you go away is an important decision, it can make or break your vacation.

Unusual places to stay are springing up all over the place – so to help you out, and to give a little inspiration, here are a list of 5 unique properties in England.
Champing – Spend the Night in a Historical Church
We’ve had glamping, now we’re adding ‘champing’ to the mix. The Churches Conservation Trust in England have opened up three of their historic churches for visitors to come and spend the night in. Experience the uniqueness and peace of sleeping in a tranquil church by candlelight.
With locations in Kent, Cambridge and Northamptonshire, guests are given the key to the church so they can come and go as they please, exploring the rural beauty of the surrounding areas.
A champing break costs £60 per person per night, including breakfast made from local produce.
