Historic Properties

Historic properties from One Off Places - castles, country houses, gatehouses, millhouses and halls - beautiful holiday rental properties oozing atmosphere and history.  Whether you're after a little bolthole for two in England, or a grand mansion for a large get together or party in France, our historic properties have something to offer.

Castles / Chateaux

People often dream of a holiday in a castle - well, it's not as rare as you may think, or for that matter, as expensive. Get a large group of friends together and rent a castle for your next holiday - dinner in the banqueting hall anyone?

Country Houses

Looking for a weekend break with a group of friends of family and need a house which can accommodate a large group? Then have a look at our collection of stunning country houses.


A gateway to castles and manor houses, the gatehouse has played a crucial part in history. Often listed buildings, they invariably have some wonderful views, and are unique and romantic boltholes.


If you're looking for a big property to hire for a weekend or holiday with friends and family, then a stay in a hall is an excellent option. Spacious, well equipped, and steeped in history.


Why not consider staying in a tower for your next holiday?  All the fun of staying in a historic property, but often with all the mod cons to hand too!

Windmills / Millhouses

Olive mills, windmills, watermills, houses next to mills and houses in mills; so many mills that we've given them a category all of their own. Not only is it fun to stay in a windmill, but windmill holidays are something to write home about!

There’s something inimitably magical about staying in a historic property – the atmosphere, the splendour and the sense of the people and events that have gone before. And places like this feel so exclusive that it’s a real treat to be able to call one your own for a few nights. If you’re looking for somewhere bijou and romantic then why not stay in a windmill? Some of the One Off Places windmills are bigger but some are tiny, and where better to cosy in with a view and a loved one. Alternatively you could holiday in a tower or a gatehouse – historic properties like this allow you to be part of something magnificent without the same grandeur or price tag.

At the other end of the scale there are some extraordinary chateaux, halls and country houses, so if you’ve always dreamed of a holiday in a castle you’ve come to the right place! As historic properties go these are probably the ultimate fantasy – when you stay in an elegant chateau or a traditional country house you can really be transported to a bygone era where the beds are four poster, the gardens are full of croquet lawns and statues and your wish is someone else’s command. There’s no better setting for a celebration, a weekend away with friends or a unique family holiday. If you’re looking for a holiday rental with a twist then a weekend in a windmill or a party in a castle could be just the thing.
