Melanie Baker

After graduating from Bournemouth University with an Interactive Media Production degree, Mel spent five years passing on her passion and knowledge as a lecturer and Head of Department for Media at Cornwall College. Not only does Mel have an extensive knowledge of all things travel, media and PR, she is also a dab hand at crafts. This creative lady makes her own festival headdresses - you may even spot an A-List Glasto-goer wearing one! Away from the office and crafting table, you will probably find PR Officer Mel in a hard hat demolishing walls and redesigning in her first home – this girl isn’t afraid of a challenge! Her creative passion runs across everything she does and her first-hand experience with all things property and style make her ideally suited as Unique Home Stays go-to PR gal. Being a fan of the big outdoors, Mel loves nothing more than morning bootcamp on the beach, long walks with her cockerpoo Mollie and starts every working day with a brisk country cycle to the office on her trusty, rusty Kalkhoff.

Cosy Pre-Christmas Escapes for Two

The penultimate month is upon us! The clocks have turned back, we’re adjusting to the reality that 6pm bears resemblance to 10pm and what seems to have been a lengthy decent to Christmas has suddenly gained momentum, leaving us to ask the question - mid-November, how did you get here so fast?
