Just when you thought travel trends couldn't get any more wacky, there's a new type of holiday to contend with – the "shedcation".

Forget about cabins, windmills or capsules suspended from cliff-faces, organisers of the annual Cuprinol Shed of the Year competition have teamed up with Airbnb to convince travellers that sheds are the next big thing in accommodation.

To mark the launch of the contest, they've created a list of seven sheds you can actually stay in, made up of previous finalists as well as some new hopefuls taking part in this year’s competition. Have they got you convinced?
