Here in the UK, we're inching closer, little by little, to the gradual lifting of lockdown. As at today, the self-catering holiday industry is hoping to be able to restart, in some form or another, in early July. Of course, things may change, but in our opinion, there's no harm in a bit of dreaming, in the hope of the dream becoming reality. Today's blog post highlights four of our favourite remote properties, three in Scotland, and one in Greece. Lots of people will be in search of remote self-catering properties where they can enjoy the wide open spaces and fresh air, and crucially, a change of scene! We have lots of these options on One Off Places, but here are a few to spark the imagination.
After a busy, draining and seemingly non-stop few months I was certainly in need of some R&R and that is exactly what I got at Candlestick Cottage, one of our newest One Off Places.
Last call for a New Year's Eve getaway! Scroll on to see late availability in 24 of our glorious One Off Places, sleeping from 2 to 25 people.
Your honeymoon is the most exciting holiday of your life. It may be the only holiday you ever go on where it is allowed, and more so encouraged, that you raise the bar on your budget and treat yourself to the best luxury and extravagance that money can buy. It is the holiday that seals the deal on your wedding and is when your life together begins. But deciding where to go can be a minefield! There is a huge amount of choice, from a diversity of destinations to all sorts of different types of accommodation.
Think of Scotland and many things come to mind - whisky and bagpipes, deep lochs and rugged mountains, historic cities…..It’s true to say that Scotland has all of these things and more. There is no doubt that it’s mysterious, ancient and breathtakingly beautiful - this part of the UK has something for everyone. Lovers of mother nature will be in heaven - from the unspoilt splendour of the Cairngorms peaks and the Trossach mountains, to the wilderness of the Outer Hebrides, the shorts of Loch Ness and the sandy beaches of the Isle of Skye. If you’re a fan of the great outdoors, then there is no better place - golf, fishing, hiking, biking and endless adventure pursuits are all in plentiful supply. If you want to visit a distillery, explore castles, scale mountains or swim in sea lochs, then there’s no doubt that Scotland is the place to do it, it’s simply a question of which region to explore first.
