We had a lovely holiday at Florin. The owners provided the warmest of welcomes and the house was superb. Florin was prepared beautifully for our arrival and great thought and effort had been put into that preparation - even the fires are laid and ready to light. We had great fun in the pool room and our three year old loved the tree house and many hiding places in the garden. It is a beautiful house; furnished and decorated most tastefully and so much thought put into providing a lovely holiday home for visitors. We really enjoyed the Welsh cakes and bacon provided by the owners for our arrival. The location is great too, with many lovely beaches - we particularly liked Aberporth. Please pass on our thanks to the owners. All of the staff at Unique Home Stays have always been charming, helpful and efficient. It has been a pleasure to do business with you.
Love Lane Lodge was a wonderful property that exceeded our expectations; I want to live there! We have friends who have had holidays with Unique Home Stays. We had planned a holiday in the Mediterranean but instead we looked for luxury in the UK and found it! Unique Home Stays have mastered excellent customer service.
The bed was extremely comfortable and we were made to feel very welcome by the owners. The view from the property is stunning. Unique Home Stays were really good, booking was so simple and the reminder emails as to when payments are due was a great help. Thank you to all at The Herringbone and Unique Home Stays, my husband and I really enjoyed our stay for our 25th wedding anniversary.
I wanted to say a huge thank you for all your assistance in arranging my stay at Wildwood House. The house was absolutely perfect; the accommodation is first class and the grounds are stunning. Please pass on my sincere thanks to the owners for allowing us to stay. I´d highly recommend this property for anyone looking to entertain a large group, the barn is the perfect venue to bring in caterers for a party. We wouldn´t think of booking through anyone else.
The owners of Cinnamon Cottage provided so many extra touches that we did not expect and that made our stay even more special. From the logs present in the fireplace, to the extra firewood we needed and how easy the request was, to the little touches of flowers and fruit, and loveliness throughout, it was the most enjoyable stay in a private rental that we have EVER had. Their instructions in the file box on the window sill were perfect and all that was needed, the maps provided for the area and the national park, and knowing that they and Unique Home Stays were only a call away made us very pleased and happy. Cinnamon Cottage exceeded our expectations and created the most memorable and enjoyable moments on our trip to England. We had stayed in a rented flat in London with another company, which was also very nice, but the experience with Unique Home Stays, and the owners of Cinnamon Cottage, in Higher Ashton, was more than we could have hoped for. The property is beautiful, the hospitality was delightful and the memories will last a lifetime. We will be using Unique Home Stays again!
Coniston was a great location. The best of the Lake District but away from the crowds and there were lots of things to do without moving the car. We have stayed at two of your properties and have another booked for October. We would not think about using any other company as can rely on Unique Home Stays to have sourced the very best properties.
It was our silver wedding anniversary so we wanted to push the boat out and stay somewhere really special. We were absolutely delighted with the property and the service we received from Unique Home Stays. It totally lived up to our expectations. We also, with hindsight, are very impressed with the photos of the property online. Too often you arrive somewhere and it´s not quite as you expect but not in this case. You have done a really good job with the photo galleries. Top job!
The property was fantastic, with everything we needed as a larger group for a superb relaxed holiday. The facilities were excellent; with plenty of crockery, cutlery and cooking utensils, and unlimited wood/coal for the open fires. The gardens are beautiful, we enjoyed the hammocke, sport on the front lawns and relaxing in the back garden for lunch. The owner and her father were also very welcoming and helped us with local information. Thank you - we really enjoyed the stay and would certainly recommend Unique Home Stays to friends.
Booking Spring Grove Stable through Unique Home Stays was effortless and highly professional. I thought the texts I received when we had arrived and left were a lovely touch; I will certainly look to use the company again and have already recommended the company to friends and family. With regards to the property, from the minute we arrived until the minute we left we had the most amazing time. The owners Angela & Allen greeted us upon arrival and made us feel so welcome. The housekeeper and gardening staff all helped make our visit so wonderfully relaxed and enjoyable, we felt like part of the family. The house was utterly amazing and it was super that dogs were allowed. The grounds of the estate were amazing, my daughters loved the walks in the meadow as well as our daily walks to see the horses and donkeys. We will definitely be back, Thank you.
The whole process is smooth, staff are friendly and helpful if there are queries, and the standards are excellent. Love Lane Lodge was not only lovely, but spotlessly clean. Having done many cottage holidays, and being what some would call fussy, we rate Unique Home Stays, and if you ever need any testing done by mystery visitors, we are your people!
We are very impressed with the level of service and attention to detail that Unique Home Stays give. It places you head and shoulders above other holiday rental companies. It would be difficult to find a property with a better location than ´Chapel Point´ and the interior design and facilities are superb. Absolutely nothing to fault. Stunning property in a fabulous location, the facilities were first class.
We are truly going to miss UHS when we move back into our own home in September. We really had to think long and hard about giving up this ´business´. We are throwing around ideas of finding something else (smaller) perhaps in UK that might fit with UHS. We are very amazed with your business model, your company, and how true you all were to predict bookings that you would get. Everything you say and do is true!
A huge thank you to you and the team at Unique Home Stays - the service that we have received has been fantastic and I would recommend you to everyone. We would also like the thank Angela at Spring Grove Cottage- the cottage is beautiful and she was extremely welcoming and helpful. I hope we can return in the future!
It was the perfect retreat for the break we were looking for. The 3D cinema room was the clinching factor in booking this particular property. The property was beautiful, well maintained and fitted our needs completely. We were very happy with every aspect of our booking, the accommodation, information provided and contact with Sarah. We have booked properties through you before and will continue to use you in the future. Just carry on doing what you´re doing and finding those dream properties that turn breaks into memories.
My friends and I had a great time at Skyline, and the communication and correspondence from Unique Home Stays has been absolutely great throughout the whole process. You can be sure that I would gladly use the services of Unique Home Stays in the future as well as to pass on recommendations. Once again thank you for your business.
A fantastic site, service, property and hosts! We were really struggling to find exactly what we wanted and this site provided the perfect solution. The overall experience was aimed at our target market perfectly I.e. City types who are looking for that countryside experience but with all of the luxuries and facilities you would find in a hotel. One doesn´t want to compromise on style or luxury when holidaying in the UK
We love unique home stays - homes away from home. We love eating in and enjoying a nice property and the kitchens are usually so well equipped which makes a big difference. Also love the stylish decor everywhere. At home we take pride in our home and want to stay somewhere equally lovely and comfortable on our holidays.
Beautiful cottage, immaculate and a real home-from-home. Everything we needed in the property was provided. There was comprehensive instructions and information which could be found in the house manual. This was our first stay with Unique Home Stays and we are very impressed. You will definitely be our first choice for our next break.
The experience overall was absolutely great! Unique Home Stays provided a friendly and efficient service. The cottage was so well presented and the owners were lovely. Really kind people who really went the extra mile to ensure our stay was a positive experience! Would definitely visit again, recommend to others and would also definitely book through Unique Home Stays whether booking this property or trying something new.
Just wanted to drop you a note to say thank you very much for the bottle of bubbles that we received to thank us for our continued custom with Unique Home Stays. It was a lovely surprise and we were both touched that we are seen as valued customers. We very much look forward to booking another stay at one of your properties soon.
Janet, the owner, is lovely and made us very welcome. I organised for a private chef (Franklydelicious) to come to the cottage one evening and it was a wonderful experience. My husband and I have booked another one of your properties for New Year´s week and I am already really looking forward to this. The service you provide is excellent.
Must say I rarely give 10 out of 10 being super fussy (according to my husband!)but I give Skyfall this easily and more. This is the second Unique property we have visited and I very much like your high standards, style and attention to detail. Will definitely book with you again. Many thanks to the team at Skyfall for your excellent care.
Once again we have been thrilled with both the property we stayed in and the excellent quality of service offered by the staff at Unique Home Stays, thank you. Can we also say a special thank you to Rebecca and Steve, the owners of The Limit´, who offer many thoughtful and generous touches- such as the cream tea on arrival and the well-stocked kitchen store cupboard
This is the second time that we have booked through UHS and both properties have been superb. This was our mini-moon so we wanted something idyllic and special and this is exactly what we got. We also booked Franckly Delicious to cook us dinner one evening and this was a fantastic decision as it made for a very special addition to our break. We will definitely use UHS again.
We absolutely loved this property! It has such charm and has been renovated to a very high standard. The position offers such privacy, peace and quiet - it was our sanctuary! The house was beautifully clean and well prepared by the lovely Lisa and we were made to feel so welcome. Unique Home Stays have provided us with a first class service with excellent communication, an easy to use website/booking service etc so we will definitely use you again. We also plan on visiting The Osprey again as soon as we can!!! All in all we have had one of the best short breaks we have ever had!!
I would just like to take this opportunity to thank all involved with our ´Unique Home Stay´ at the sublime Fish Store, the accommodation was amazing and exceeded everyone´s expectations - 10/10! Your correspondence and information in the build up to the trip was exemplary and the whole process ran smoothly from start to finish - I will definitely be using your services again soon. Jon - a very happy customer
As my husband and I don´t get away very often on our own it´s very important that nothing is left to chance. Since finding Unique Home Stays they have been a lifesaver; I don´t have to worry about the quality of the property or the facilities. Choose a location, select which gorgeous property and pay, and you know you are guaranteed a high quality, thoughtful stay.
It has been an absolute pleasure to have have booked our break through you and Unique Home Stays. You made the whole process very easy and were extremely helpful. You were personally very helpful and this was much appreciated. Marilyn made us so very welcome at Kingfisher Folly and it was a pleasure to meet her.
Firstly, as a seasoned traveller over the past decade (mainly on business), I´ve been so so impressed by your company. The quality of properties (superb), the attention to detail, the nice touches, the focus on customer service, the seamless process, the ´complete´ experience. Our stay really lived up to the promise, thank you so much.
