Quirky accommodation: spend a night on a crane

Why not surprise a loved one by booking yourselves a night’s stay on a crane overlooking Bristol Harbour? Yes, that’s right, a crane – and it’s an eco-friendly one, to boot.

Holiday specialists Canopy & Stars have been very busy. They’ve taken a 60-year-old crane, looming over the docks of Bristol Harbour, and turned it into a ‘tree house’. It’s available to rent to two brave souls every night until 24 September this year.

While some people won’t leap at the opportunity of spending a night suspended from an old crane, it isn’t as scary as you’d expect. It’s a ‘nature-inspired sanctuary’, providing bed, breakfast and, perhaps most excitingly, a compost toilet. All profits go to Friends of the Earth.
