About Oliver's Travels - UK

Your time off is precious. So when you go away, why not make an occasion of it and book somewhere a bit… different?

At Oliver’s Travels we don’t do ordinary. But if you’re looking to rent somewhere quirky, unique and bursting with more character than a bottle of ���59 Lafite Rothschild, we’ve got some stunning luxury villas for you to choose from.

Fancy a romantic weekend for two in a lighthouse, a week away in a converted windmill, or a fortnight relaxing with friends in the grounds of a French chateau?

We’ve got them all here at Oliver’s Travels. Each one of our properties is handpicked by our team to guarantee you a truly memorable luxury villa holiday. By booking direct with the owner from around £40 per person per night, you can experience luxury without burning a hole in your pocket.

Where did it all start?

In 2003, my best mate Ravi and I spent a week at Chateau de Cardou in the Dordogne with a group of our closest friends. It was one of those holidays you never forget. The chateau was stunning, the wine was flowing and the weather was pretty much perfect. Best of all, we had the whole place to ourselves.

As it turns out, that holiday was the start of something pretty special. Before we’d even got back to England, Ravi and I had come up with the basic idea for our first business, Simply Chateau: a website where people could find and book exclusive, luxury villas without having to shell out a fortune.

Why Oliver's Travels - UK chose Holmfirth

Where are we today?

We’ve grown a bit since then. We’ve now got a team of people who love travelling just as much as we do. Between us, we’ve handpicked every one of the properties you’ll find on the site.

Our emphasis is still on quirky, lavish, one-of-a-kind places to stay, but we now offer villas, castles, stately homes, beach huts and cottages, as well as chateaux – not just in France, but across Europe and the Caribbean.

You may have noticed we’ve changed our name too. Ravi took a bit of persuading, but in the end we agreed on Oliver’s Travels!

What makes this house unique

Why choose ordinary?

So whether you want to treat the family, get together with friends or spend a romantic weekend somewhere special, why choose ordinary when you can have exceptional?

At Oliver’s Travels, we guarantee you a holiday to remember at a price you won’t regret.

If you’re looking for a bit of inspiration, why not take a look at our latest recommendations, where you’ll find a list of our own favourite places to stay? Our concierge service can help personalize your trip down to the smallest detail, or if you're raring to go you can just jump in and start browsing.

Happy travelling!

The Northern England / Yorkshire / Yorkshire region

The house is set in the heart of the Holme Valley which has some of the most beautiful countryside in Yorkshire. It is also situated right on the very edge of the stunning peak district which is a short car journey away.

The famous, picturesque Yorkshire Dales are also within easy reach by car. The historical city of York is approximately 1 hour drive away, and there are many other famous and interesting places to visit, making Holmfirth an ideal base for tourists.

Holmfirth

Oakland House is only a 5 minute walk from the busy market town of Holmfirth where guests will find plenty of shops and restaurants to suit all tastes. Fans of the TV show Llast of the Summer Wine can go on guided tours and bus tours around the areas where the filming takes place. The popular Compos Restaurant is a 1 minute walk away.

The countryside in the area is stunning and guests can literally walk out of the house and be walking or cycling on picturesque paths in minutes. The owners leave detailed information in the house so guests can go on these treks and walks for their own use. The village is right on the edge of the Peak district, and the pretty town of Glossop is only 20 minutes away by car. There are also plenty of wonderful walks around numerous reservoirs within walking distance to the house.

There are lots of interesting places to visit for both young and old alike with breathtaking scenery.
