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…
Where do I start? At the beginning would be a good place I suppose so here goes…….
Six years ago we upped sticks and moved lock, stock and barrel from London to Pembrokeshire, West Wales where we run, as a family, three, self-catering cottages. We moved here after falling in love with the area whilst on a family holiday and within a year had sold up and moved to Newhouse Farm.
I thought you might be interested in the history and architecture of our unique holiday let in Monmouthshire.
The Chestnuts, Oxfordshire
Super chic 4 bedroom cottage in the heart of one of England`’s areas of outstanding natural beauty. It sits in the village of Shilton, 3 miles from Burford and in a central location to explore the Cotswolds. All the rooms are interior designed with original art works and artefacts, and the kitchen is equipped for a gourmet chef.
There are lots of ways to make a holiday house feel truly special. Under floor heating, fluffy Egyptian cotton towels and super king size beds to name but a few. But nothing is quite as luxurious as a holiday cottage with a hot tub! What could feel more indulgent than slipping into what is essentially a big, bubbly hot bath and whiling away the hours without a care in the world, as your worries just melt away? The answer is: not a lot.
