From gothic to fairytale and traditional to contemporary, castles and chateaux might just be the ultimate in self-catering for groups of friends, family gatherings, or big celebrations. Think grandeur, luxury, space and character – what’s not to like? ..

The One Off Places family was lucky enough to have a weekend at the glorious Seacombe recently.  One thing’s for sure - whatever you see on the website; it’s better.  And for those of you who have seen the website, it looks pretty good on there already……It is positioned on the south Devon coast near Salcombe, between the villages of East Prawle and East Portlemouth, and just a few minute..
Top Tips for Stress Free Airport Parking
Created: 08/11/2016
Nobody wants a stressful start to their holiday! But unfortunately this can happen, there’s so much to organise and plan before you go away you can often forget vital elements to your trip. This in turn ends up costing you WAY more money than it should do. ..
Eco & Luxury: How two simple words have become natural bedfellows in Scotland
Created: 19/10/2016
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..
Grand Days Out in Suffolk - A Guest Blog from Carl Scott
Created: 03/10/2016
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 ..

Bulgaria’s Mountain Holidays are possibly Europe’s best kept secret
Created: 13/07/2016
The growth in adventure tourism, biking, hiking and walking holidays has been a welcomed boost for sustainable tourism in rural communities throughout Europe. ‘Traditional’ destinations such as the Alps are being shunned by a new style of explorer who is eager to avoid the crowds and annoyingly extortionate prices. The Eastern Rhodope Mountains in Bulgaria offer some of the most breath taking..
Wooden Shack to Award Winning Designer Renovation - The Story of Seacombe in Devon
Created: 05/06/2016
One day in 1987, when we were camping with friends at East Prawle, we saw discarded auction details for a wooden shack and 1 ½ acres of land nearby. The location was exceptional. It has panoramic coastal views dominated by Deckler’s Cliff and Bolthead. The coastal path is close by, just above the lovely beach Seacombe Sands. ..
Swallows and Amazons - making the boat owning dream a reality
Created: 25/05/2016
Swallows and Amazons forever; the cry sings out from the pages of Arthur Ransome’s classic story as the Walker children prepare for another adventure aboard a little wooden boat called “Swallow.” At the age of 10, I spent many happy hours with my nose in a book wishing I could join them. Ever since reading these classic stories of a utopian childhood spent messing about in boats I have been ..

Our search for a Spanish cortijo
Created: 09/05/2016
So we at last retired and thought we would build a nice little place in Spain for long summer siestas, a swim in our own pool and a home cooked paella now and again.  We had always wanted to build our own place and now seemed to be the right time. We had decided that we did not like the modern villas and wanted an old style, country Finca which would have the mod-cons but retain the old features,..

Undiscovered Thailand Mention Thailand and most will think of the country’s teeming capital, Bangkok, or of the tourist-focused destinations of Phuket, Koh Samui and Pattaya, or Chiang Mai.  But there is a whole hidden area of Thailand where few foreigners tread, and which the author Ben Davies has called “the forgotten provinces.” ..
