Winter Sunshine and Safaris in Kent from One Off Places

So it seems that you don’t have to fly at vast expense to get yourself some winter sunshine and a dawn safari.  You could be forgiven for thinking that I’d gone mad, but no, it has just dawned on me that of all the fabulous regions we have One Off Places, our One Off Places in Kent are as diverse as they get.

For the romantic types, it’s all about the hand crafted treehouse, an exquisite labour of love which sleeps 2 people in luxurious surroundings, and has a bubbling hot tub at the foot of the tree.  Romance personified.

Livingstone Lodge safari tents

If you want to treat the children to a safari, without the expense, the malarial tables and the time off work, then head for a long weekend down to Livingstone Lodge or Elephant Lodge, a collection of safari tents in Port Lympne Wild Animal Park.  You’ll get the full safari experience – a tented lodge, a deck looking out onto a waterhole, and the opportunity to go out on safaris to get up close and personal with the animals.

And then we have the exclusive (but amazingly well priced) beachfront house with its very own Real Sunlight multi sensory room.  The perfect beach and summer holiday all year round – you can head a few steps out of your door to the beach on sunny days, and enjoy completely safe sunbathing in the sun room, and films in the cinema room, on rainy days.  It sleeps up to 6 people and the interior of the house is the height of luxury.

Also in Kent we have a detached glass fronted house right on the beach in Whitstable, a period house in the charming town of Deal, and a relaxation retreat near Canterbury.  To see our other Kent properties, click here.

Say Hello to our new Treehouse in Cornwall

In search of a unique bolthole where you can snuggle up with a loved one and escape the world?  This lovingly built treehouse is perched in an ash tree on the Lizard Peninsula in Cornwall, complete with sweeping countryside and sea views.

This unusual treetop hideaway offers you peace and seclusion, a place you can enjoy quiet surroundings and go to sleep to the sound of leaves rustling in the surrounding trees.  Wake up to views over Falmouth Bay, and the surrounding countryside.

Inside the treehouse is one open plan room, with a kitchen / sitting area below and a mezzanine double bed.  The kitchen is small but well equipped with a hob and grill, a cold box and a selection of crockery and cutlery.  There is also a tap, basin and composting toilet, and a separate shared shower room in a beautifully converted horse box!

A beautiful beach is just a 10 minute walk from the treehouse in the village of Porthallow – also in the village you will find a good local pub.  A 20 minute walk takes you to the village of St Keverne which has restaurants and a few shops.  All around you are stunning coast path walks and water sport opportunities.

The lower east coast of the Lizard Peninsula is famous for its secluded coves, stunning coastal scenery and quaint fishing villages.  This is a perfect spot for a getaway break, and you may find it hard to leave…..
