Sometimes we all need a bit of indulgence, and a holiday or a weekend away is the perfect opportunity to justify spoiling yourself. You may dream of an adventure in a camper van, a rustic glamping experience or a cosy unpretentious home-from-home, but if you’re someone who wants to relax in truly sumptuous surroundings then a UK luxury retreat is definitely for you. The great thing about ‘luxury’ is that it’s infinite and relatively indefinable because we all have our own idea of what it entails. And as a result it comes in all shapes and sizes - so how do you choose? Here at One Off Places we have a diverse collection and it can be hard to narrow it down, but these are some of our favourites to whet your appetite…
Suffolk isn’t as sleepy as it looks from the outside. Luckily, based here at Woodfarm Barns and Barges, in the heart of the Suffolk countryside, we get to experience all of this county’s vast history, unique quirks and breathtaking beauty on our very own doorstep.
See in 2019 in a Devonshire castle, a Norfolk windmill or a Brecon Beacons hill farm . Cosy up for a winter weekend in a chic Cotswold bolthole or a luxury riverside cabin in Cumbria with hot tub. Or bag yourself an amazing low season deal in Italy, France or Spain.
This weekend the One Off Places family headed down to Somerset to sample the delights of Railway Cottage, a 3 bedroom cottage right by the West Somerset Steam Railway line near the village of Woolston Moor in north Somerset. The cottage was built by Isambard Kingdom Brunel, a world famous engineer, at the same time as he was building the railway.
From luxury woodland suites in Yorkshire, to a remote shorefront Scottish cottage, One Off Places has got your cosy winter staycation sorted. Or if you fancy taking advantage of low season flights and venturing somewhere a little less chilly, then why not head for a Portuguese break in Lisbon or the Algarve.
