Clavell Tower, England
Known locally as a â€œfollyâ€, this 19th century structure has been renovated as a one-bedroom edifice which only fits two people.

Three nights in this tower will cost about USD $880, and clients can enjoy the spectacular cliffs and coastline of the region from their eleven metre-high perch which provides a 360-degree view.
