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.
February half term is just round the corner and here at One Off Places we still have some availability for both short breaks and week long stays in some wonderful properties, including a Somerset railway cottage built by Isambard Kingdom Brunel and a treehouse for six on the Isle of Wight.
Still seeking a New Year escape? One Off Places has a fantastic selection of places which still have availability - whether you want a romantic bolthole for two, or a bigger house for a group of friends.
When it comes to holidays, it's always the right time to book one! I don't know about you, but I find myself careering through January 2016, before even accepting that we've moved on from Christmas and that 2015 is far behind us. Here at One Off Places we're seeing peak season weeks flying off the shelves, and an increasing amount of July and August availability calendars showing as fully booked. Already? I hear you say! January is the time that people's thoughts turn to holidays, dreaming of warmer climes, or simply some time off, out of the rat race, enjoying time with family and loved ones. One Off Places is host to hundreds of properties, all of them individual and distinctive in some way, some way off the wall, and some more traditional. We've selected a few of our favourites to get those holiday juices flowing......
