Travel & Food

Who needs the boring, blank walls and faceless anonymity of a ho-hum hotel when you go on your next holiday? It’s all well and good to stay somewhere that’s got functionality down pat, but here at Oliver’s Travels we like to do something a little different. Wherever you’re going, why shouldn’t returning to your accommodation be as exciting and beautiful as the cities and countryside that wowed you during the day?

And let’s face it, everyone loves castles. Be it the girls who want to indulge their inner princess or the chaps who like to strut about like they own the place (and imagine themselves donning a full suit of armour and wielding a broadsword) castles have a tangible magic about them that will captivate and delight anyone of any age.
