Ever wonder what it would be like to sleep in a helicopter? Well now you can! We have transformed a Sea King helicopter into a stunning luxury overnight accommodation complete with mini kitchen and shower room.
A retired Royal Navy search-and-rescue helicopter has been transformed into an “innovative” new holiday rental home in Stirling, Scotland, complete with three bedrooms, a lounge, shower room and kitchen, and a cockpit seating area offering panoramic countryside views.
Our helicopter takes glamping to a higher level, with fantastic original features, a quirky bed in the tail and a spectacular cockpit seating area with panoramic views over the Carse of Stirling.
We think it’s every child’s (and big kid’s) dream holiday home.Be one of the first to ‘fly’ with us by booking now.
According to the hotel’s owners, the Sea King was bought at an online auction a couple of years ago for a mere USD $9,125 and then transported by road and craned into place at the campsite.
The owners spent several days sanding the exterior down, before repainting. Some original rotor blades were found via eBay and put on, while the other original markings and lights were kept, in order to give that touch of authenticity.
It’s quite a unique kind of overnight stay that makes a convincing case for adaptive reuse to get creative, and it’s the kind of experience that would definitely amaze any kiddies, or any young-at-heart grown-ups. Prices start at $195 for two adults for one night, with slight discounts if you stay longer.
