With a festive flavour in the air and your thoughts consumed by Christmas, we won’t distract you with our usual selection of inspiring places to stay. It’s too early to pre-empt January fitness and de-tox breaks, but how about kick-starting the New Year with coastal and woodland hikes in Cornwall, setting out from your luxurious lodgings at a historic home with a contemporary twist www.mawgan.uniquehomestays.com? Or perhaps we can lure you with a sun-drenched cliff-hanger for your summer getaway overseas www.boomerangbeachhouse.uniquehomestays.com? If you need a break after the family onslaught at Christmas time, escape to a cosy cottage by Robin Hood Bay
www.bayview.uniquehomestays.com or venture to London for the January sales, catching a boat into town from Royal Arsenal www.royalarsenal.uniquehomestays.com or staying in chic, sleek splendour at the London Townhouse www.elmbournehouse.uniquehomestays.com
As another year comes to a close, we would like to thank our loyal clients and owners for their continued support, and for making Unique Home Stays the huge success that it is today. And for those of you who have not yet enjoyed the Unique Home Stays experience, we look forward to introducing you to our fantastic properties in the New Year.
If you have stayed at a Unique Home Stay, you will know we hold the key to some of the most beautiful private house accommodation in the world. Our selection of unique homes range from antique-filled manor houses steeped history, to remote coastal cottages in Cornwall and tree houses in India. At Unique Home Stays you are spoilt for choice between homes complete with butler service and private chefs, to those that offer a pure, getting-away-from-it-all, luxury self-catering experience.
If you haven’t yet stayed at a Unique Home Stay, then of course we’d have to ask, why not?
Unique Home Stays understand that your holiday requirements are as individual as the properties that we market, and we take the time to find the property that is perfect for you, ensuring a bespoke service that is second to none. MD Sarah Stanley’s carefully chosen team of passionate individuals share her enthusiasm and zeal for Unique Home Stays’ properties; our aim, and that of our property owners, is to surpass expectations at every turn. We are committed to selecting only the most extraordinary private houses, where the demands of the most discerning of guests will be satisfied.
Our properties can’t be described as ‘nice’ or ‘fine’ – every one of them shouts the wow factor. Think exquisite homes in breathtaking locations: haunts where film stars have stayed in Cornwall www.thebeachhut.uniquehomestays.com, classic villas perched on 16-miles of sand in South Africa www.whitesandsbeachhouse.com, city houses from London to Marrakech www.thewhitehouse.uniquehomestays.com and country houses from Sussex to Spain www.casaphoenix.uniquehomestays.com.
Looking ahead to 2009, our aim is to continue to expand our selection of fantastic properties while not losing sight of the ‘unique’. So if you have a property that might suit our select international portfolio, we would love to hear from you. We’re looking for small and large houses in gob-smacking locations. Be it a grand country pile or a minimalist haven, we’re looking for alternative architecture, interesting interiors and a star quality to inspire every one of your guests.
We wish you a very Merry Christmas and look forward to speaking with you in the New Year. And if you're still looking for inspiration for this festive season, please call 01637 881183 for last minute seasonal getaways,
Sarah and the UHS team
