So, suddenly it’s August! Our Great British Summer has come and gone and post summer-holiday, we know you guys need cheering up, so we’ve searched far and wide for some quirky listings, and here are some of our favourites. Enjoy!

First up is this gorgeous home which, at first glance, just looks like a grass mound but, on closer inspection, reveals a hobbit-sized door and some pretty lush interiors. Being a beautiful, lavish abode, we’re shocked at the price – so maybe we’ll be making the move up north!
