Ancient, mysterious and breathtakingly beautiful, this northernmost part of the UK truly has something for everyone, it’s just a question of which region to explore first. Whether you're in search of a romantic beachfront retreat, an activity week with the family, or perhaps a group celebration in a spectacular historic building, there will be something to suit you in our Scotland portfolio. ..
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 wors..
The phrase ‘good for the soul’ probably means vastly varying things to different people, especially in relation to a holiday. Some may envisage rural escapism, others may picture a deserted beach, and perhaps your idea of a restorative retreat involves sunrise yoga, luxurious spa treatments or a reconnection with nature. Whether you’re looking for adventure and activity or silence and sereni..
It’s been a tough few months. And although the people of the United Kingdom have done an incredible job of turning negatives into positives (bread-baking, knitting, yoga, creative writing, touch-typing - you name it, we’ve done it), lockdown has been hard and we’re all looking forward to regaining some freedom.
Once we do, we’re probably going to want to travel further afield than our l..
Today's blog features our top 10 Spanish One Off Places with peak season availability. With flights still both available and inexpensive, it's an excellent choice if you're in search of some summer sunshine.
See in 2019 in a Devonshire castle, a Norfolk windmill or a Brecon Beacons hill farm . Cosy up for a winter weekend in a chic Cotswold bolthole or a luxury riverside cabin in Cumbria with hot tub. Or bag yourself an amazing low season deal in Italy, France or Spain.
A dozen beautiful properties in southern England, all near the sea, which have discounted availability during the school summer holidays.

Unique holiday properties come in all shapes and sizes and today we’re focusing on those at the loftier more lavish end of the scale - the top luxury villas for large groups. Of course it’s always lovely to have a romantic getaway for two or an intimate little retreat with a chosen few, but there’s also nothing quite as exciting as planning an escape with a big team. These sorts of holiday a..
One of the shining stars of the Mediterranean, Mallorca never fails to seduce. Glorious beaches, azure seas, remote hilltops, historic towns and a simply stunning coastline; even in peak season you can find pockets of silence if you want them. It's with good reason that Mallorca tops the holiday charts. In the south east of the island, two beautiful farmhouses, each set in large grounds with priva..
There are so many reasons why France is the ultimate holiday destination that it’s hard to know where to start. Its proximity to and easy access from the UK is certainly a plus, especially if you’re travelling with a large family in tow or if you don’t have a lot of time to spare. And there’s no question that the countryside is picture-postcard stunning - think vibrant sunflower fields and..
Holiday houses right on the beach are a rare and special breed - nothing can match being so close to the sea that you can listen to the waves as you fall asleep and walk out to feel the sand between your toes first thing in the morning. Can you imagine anything more uplifting and restorative than that? We can’t either, which is why One Off Places boasts a gorgeous and diverse collection of beach..
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..
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.
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.
