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.
This week's blog post features some of our finest One Off Places! The images alone say it all - there's not much need for words, but aside from showing what these stunning properties look like, there are some great offers which need highlighting! A beautiful Moorish casa in Andalucia, a former paper mill on a private island in France and a waterside coastguard cottage in Devon are just some of the little gems we have on offer.
We've been sourcing unique and characterful holiday accommodation for 12 years now, so whatever your 2019 holiday inclinations, we'd like to think we might have something to suit you. Whether you want to soothe your soul in a quiet retreat, go off the beaten track in search of unspoilt beaches, or take a group of friends to a country pad for a house party, we've got it all on offer at One Off Places.
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…
When you’re tired of the daily grind and looking for a change of scenery and a weekend of fun-filled relaxation (or debauchery!) then you need to choose the perfect setting. But it can be surprisingly hard to find exactly the right place. Are the guests family, friends or colleagues? How well do they all know each other? How many bedrooms do you need? Do you want the ambiance to be traditional elegance or contemporary luxury? In terms of catering, are you thinking cocktail parties and sit-down suppers or more of a relaxed do-it-yourself vibe? And what about setting and surroundings - do you want nothing more than seclusion, tranquillity and a beautiful view or would you prefer somewhere you can get stuck into adrenalin-fuelled outdoor pursuits?
