Unique Home Stays... It's not a hotel... It's a home


May 2006   


It's almost time to take a break and enjoy the long lazy days of summer. Which is why at Unique Home Stays, we've been busy seeking out a handful of unique and luxurious escapes especially for you...

Summer of Love
KOALA COTTAGE, Isle of Wight
This boutique retreat offers an intimate haven designed especially for couples. No summer romance can fail under the magic of the champagne picnics, candlelit alfresco dinners and bouquets of roses at your fingertips. And when the sun goes down, return to the sanctuary of one of the three opulent suites, where you will find a king-size bed, French chandeliers, a roll-top bath and a private lounge. (£199pp/ 3-night weekend or 4 night mid-week break.)

Beach Party

An outdoor hot tub, ground-shaking sound system and a quirky-cum-palacial party house - what more do you need for the ultimate summer house party? How about the use of a private beach hut on the golden sands of Old Hunstanton? Chic Barns was made for unique and stylish house parties. It has six rooms, a bunkhouse, a dining room that seats 70, and three acres of private grounds. And then there are the trimmings that don't fall short of the wow-factor: a kitchen boasting floor-to-ceiling windows; a dedicated DVD/hi-fi room, and a huge sitting room that opens onto a courtyard with a Spanish fountain, a hot tub, a sauna and a barbecue. (From £2550 for a weekend.)

Make a Splash

The weekend club was set up for those of you that believe every weekend should be a long weekend. And especially for those of you that crave outdoor action and watersports along with the five-star comforts of the ultimate lakeside weekend pad. Windsurfing and dingy sailing are all included, and there's water-skiing on offer at an additional cost. If you prefer to keep your feet dry there's tennis, volleyball, boules, croquet, a gymnasium and golf. And once you're all puffed out you've got huge flat screen TVs, Indonesian teak furniture, walk-in showers and wireless broadband to come back to. All this, just an hour-and-a-half from London. (From £678 for a 3-night break. Evening meals by arrangement.)

The Sound of Music

THE OLD VICARAGE, Warwickshire
Enjoy a chauffeured trip to the Pavarotti Farewell Concert at Warwick Castle, as part of a luxury weekend house party at The Old Vicarage. Arrive on Friday July 14th for an evening barbecue, and then spend Saturday clay pigeon shooting under expert tuition, or walking in the countryside, before an elegant evening meal and a prime seat at the Pavarotti concert. Champagne and hot snacks will be served on your return, and on Sunday there will be time to enjoy the local sights after an American-style brunch. (July 14th -16th 2006 only; £445 per person for two people sharing. Limited to ten guests.)

Country Living

Swap the hustle and bustle of daily life for the seclusion and tranquility of Woodfarm House - the perfect location for a relaxing country retreat. Nestled in Norfolk woodland - ideal for walking, cycling and country pursuits - Woodfarm offers a high level of personal service, lavish creature comforts and accommodation boasting over 400 years of history. The oak-beamed suites have views over the lake and access to a large sundeck. (From £60.00 per room per night. Evening meals available upon request, £15.00 for two courses/ £19.00 for three courses.)
