This summer we had the pleasure of a trip to Slovenia, incorporating a few days at one of our newer One Off Places, Ortenia Six Stars of Nature. What a place! If you want to head a little off the beaten track, and disappear with a loved one to a simply stunning part of the world, then we can't recommend Ortenia enough.
A couple of weeks ago, Mr and Mrs One Off Places had the good fortune to be able to spend a couple of days at the idyllic Shepherds Hut Retreat in Somerset. We've had our eye on this place for a while, and can safely say that it's a wonderful choice for a couple of days away with a loved one. Set on an organic farm in rural Somerset, the first thing that strikes you when you arrive is that you..
There is so much going on in Herefordshire that we haven’t had a chance to do much more than scratch the surface. We moved into this seventeenth-century Blacksmiths house with an adjoining Forge from Sussex in 2015. We were charmed and fascinated by the buildings and set about unearthing their history. The Forge, located on Turnpike Road (though no-one calls it that anymore), was on a drovers’..

It may have been said in the 1800s but remains true to this day, so this week's newsletter is in celebration of France! A dozen of our favourite French One Off Places are featured in today's newsletter, with almost 200 more to choose from on our website.
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.
A few One Off Places are still looking to fill their Christmas and New Year slots - what better than to escape with family, friends and loved ones during the festive period to a former folly, a treehouse, an eco retreat, a hall, boathouse, windmill or beachfront hideaway.
After nine years of owning and running One Off Places, we've seen our fair share of wonderful places to stay. We spend our days marvelling at the quality and variety of the 1000+ accommodation options we have on offer on the One Off Places website.
A few years ago if you used the words ‘eco’ and ‘luxury’ in the same sentance, people would have laughed in your face. Eco was seen as shorthand for cheap & soulless, luxury on the other hand, could only mean expensive, exclusive & sycophantic. Scotland is the place to go to see this theory turned on its head. Glorious lochfront eco luxury pads are springing up everywhere; perfect fo..
One the fab things about Suffolk (I’m an outsider) is that the pace of life seems to be very relaxed, so our guests seem to adopt that approach when they're out and about too. And what better place to do this than, in my opinion, along the most beautiful river in Suffolk? I’ve been up and down most of them and the Deben is my favourite. There are other wonderful rivers in our county, all with ..
