Can we just tell you about this utterly utterly gorgeous country house conversion in Herefordshire? We welcomed it onto One Off Places a while back and we just can't help shouting about it every now and again. It is a beautifully restored 15th century house on a private estate near Hay on Wye. It has six bedrooms, and comprises three interconnected buildings. It has now been meticulously restored with every modern luxury including glass walkways and double height rooms with dramatic views over the Wye Valley.
Here at One Off Places we’re feeling that Brittany is being a bit underrated, so this post is going to showcase our top six places to stay in Brittany, and remind you why it’s a fabulous destination choice.
If you’re coming from the UK, it’s just a hop across the channel. It means you can take your own car (or rely on one of the many budget airlines for a good value flight) and you won’t end up spending most of your holiday travelling to and from your villa / holiday house.
Brittany is one of France’s most rugged regions and is a fascinating mixture of amazing coastline, charming towns, ancient woodland and magical islands. What is more, it can provide you with a wide array of holiday rental opportunities, from cottages to castles and all points in between.
You’d be forgiven for thinking that holiday properties with any sort of character and eccentricity will cost the earth. Generic chain hotels and boring run-of-the-mill villas and apartments are always cheaper, right? Wrong. It is VERY possible to find quirky accommodation for under £50 a night, so much so that you will actually find it harder to narrow them down than you might think! Granted, you may have to think a little more outside the box in terms of time of year, location, and style of property. But if you’re prepared to be flexible and use your imagination then the world really can be your oyster for a very reasonable price.
