With the school summer holidays just around the corner, here are 10 of our favourite One Off Places which have excellent July and August availability. From romantic retreats for exhausted teachers, to big houses for gatherings of families and friends, there are still lots of options open to you.
In terms of originality treehouse accommodation is pretty hard to beat! And who can honestly say they didn’t spend their childhood either in a treehouse or wanting to be?
Forget the modern trains and stations of today and think back to a golden era of steam and old-fashioned waiting rooms. Staying in converted trains and train stations promotes a lovely feeling of nostalgia for both young and old.
Modern life can be hugely overwhelming, in every sense of the word. We’re beholden to our mobile phones, we can’t resist checking our emails, our default method of ‘switching off’ is to sit in front of the TV and usually the first thing we do when we reach any destination is check for an internet connection. Simultaneously, our anxiety levels are rising, our sleep patterns are getting worse and the youth of today seems increasingly more interested in social media than in actually being sociable.
