Luxury accommodation provider Unique Homestays is set to become a star of the small screen after being chosen to take part in a brand new eight part observational documentary.

The Cornish company, which celebrates its tenth anniversary this year, will feature on the primetime ITV1 series, airing on Monday nights from January.

The beautiful and truly unique properties in the company’s portfolio, along with several members of staff, have been filmed throughout the summer in order to create a snapshot of what the company is all about.

The eight-episode series is being presented by actress Caroline Quentin, who has already been filmed visiting properties with Unique Homestays’ Marketing Manager Claire Ray and Retail Manager Jess Clark.

Diana Howie, ITV Commissioning Editor, Factual, said: ‘ITV series that explore life in some of Britain’s most picturesque locations, such as The Lakes and The Dales, have proved very popular with viewers and Cornwall will be moving the genre on, as well as being a great addition to our factual schedule.’

The Westcountry production company behind the show – Twofour based in Plymouth – have had previous success with shows such as the long running 'Hotel Inspector', and the BBC's inspirational 'Harry's Arctic Heroes'. 

Unique Homestays’ Marketing Manager Claire Ray said: ‘It’s such an exciting series and we can’t wait to see the final version aired on national TV! We are confident it will be really great for both the company and for Cornwall. Tourism is one of the biggest revenues for a beautiful county like Cornwall, so as forerunners in the luxury accommodation market we are delighted to have been chosen to be part of this project.’
