Summer availability in gorgeous, quirky, holiday lets…..

We’re well into July now so if you’re relying on finding something special for your summer holiday, but haven’t booked it yet, then you need to get on it!  A few of our most charming One Off Places in the UK have got some last minute slots to fill, so if any of them take your fancy, make that enquiry sharpish, before someone else does!

Fancy a stay in a private castle for two in Devon?  Then Haldon Belvedere is your place.  Set in five acres of secluded woodland with panoramic views across Dartmoor and Exmoor, this top floor apartment is oozing 18th century charisma, with ornate plasterwork, gothic windows, and marble fireplaces.  A fabulous bolthole for two.  From £125 per night.  A variety of short stays are still available throughout August.  See http://www.oneoffplaces.co.uk/Europe/England/Devon/Haldon-Belvedere—Lawrence-Castle.aspx for more info.

Eco more your thing?  This cabin in the corner of a wildflower meadow in Yorkshire is made from straw bales – in fact, it’s the UK’s first holiday home made from straw bales, so if you’re looking for unique, this is it.  Beautiful peaceful setting alongside a little pond, where the swallows dip and dive the whole summer long.  It sleeps 2 and can be booked for anything from one night (@ £60) to one week (@£264).  Still has availability for the last two weeks of August.

If you’re a water person, then consider a houseboat holiday?  There is one remaining week of availability in this beautiful barge in Devon – a traditional canal barge moored on your own private and secluded waterway.  Just relax as the countryside unfolds around you without the bother of battling your way through crowded waterways.  The boats are set in 35 acres of beautiful north Devon countryside and can sleep up to four people.  Available 9th – 16th August @ £790 for one week.

There is also some August availability in this former cobblers cottage which sits right on the River Tees in Yorkshire.  It sleeps four people in two bedrooms and is the perfect setting for a ‘get away from it all’ holiday.  Watch the kingfishers dart across the water, and even sometimes the odd otter coming by to say hello.    Part of the north Pennines area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, you will not be short of things to do or places to visit.  It’s available from 2nd – 16th August @ £450 per week.
