We had a beautiful stay in your cosy and lovely home! There is so much to explore and the gardens are like a fairyland. We will definitely return. Thank you so much for creating such a sanctuary, Arcalia is like a long lost dream come alive!

Both of our families have spent a wonderful week in this beautiful and immaculate house. Surfing, relaxing, cycling, walking, go-karting, but mostly just enjoying the surrounding land and the arrival of spring.

This house is incredible. The moment we got here we dove straight into the pool before enjoying a delicious meal in the beautiful breakfast room. Each room was cosy, comfy, and has lovely window seats for reading and having a quick nap after a long day. Not to mention looking at the stunning views over the 14 acres of land!

We have had a super time here. The weather was outstanding for us too! Thank you, for allowing us the use of your delightful home.

Thank you for such a wonderful stay. It was lovely, cosy, and very special. We absolutely loved it, the children especially! We hope to come back again one day.

What a magical house. We loved our stay. It is so peaceful, relaxing and enchanting here. GCSE and A level revision went very well interspersed with beautiful woodland walks and delicious food. St Tudy Inn is fabulous, and Gidleigh Park is out of this world. Thank you so much.

From the seven-month old baby, to the 70+ grandparents, we all loved every second of our stay. This beautiful home was made even better by the incredible weather. A perfect week.

A wonderful week, spent in a wonderful house, in a wonderful setting. Thank you.

The house was amazing and perfect for the 10 of us. We all loved it. We would like to thank the owners of Arcalia for letting us live in the life of luxury for a week. The Unique Home Stays team are very helpful and you have the best houses that we have ever rented!

A wonderful week in a wonderful house in a wonderful setting! An incredible house is made even better with incredible weather. A perfect week!

We just loved this holiday! The house was so beautiful with little delightful corners everywhere. We giggled for the first couple of hours and made it a challenge as to who could sit in all the magical spots throughout the house and gardens. The families of baby bunnies all over the lawns delighted our daughter. The sunsets were glorious, we loved the dining room with the bi-folding doors that brought the outdoors in, the amazing master suite, the beautifully stocked kitchen, the surprise cinema room and ping pong table, the swimming pool at the bottom of the garden, the conservatory that we used as a jigsaw puzzle room - I could go on all day. Whilst the location is remote, we actually enjoyed the sense of peace and calm we felt on coming home after a day of surfing at the beach or riding bikes on the Camel Trail. Thanks so much to the Lavelle family for sharing their beautiful home as well as the attention to the detail that make it so very special. What a wonderful host family and a tremendous service from Unique Home Stays as well.

We loved every single minute here! We experienced spring with true English hospitality. We went for long walks, country drives, explored the small villages and made St Tudy Inn our ┤second┤ home! Thank you for giving us moments that will live forever!

Our stay at Arcalia was amazingly magical. We hoped it would be fabulous and it was so much more. The whole family loved being toasty by the log burners as the rain lashed down outside. The property was above and beyond all of our expectations. Our children (aged between 12 and 18) were enchanted by the whole property and its location, there really is so much space, various places to chill throughout and incredible views and wildlife (we saw a deer in the garden!). It was refreshing; a haven of peace and calm in this restless world. Arcalia is a gem and we definitely want to return.

Loved the house and it was so beautiful. A little further from places than we wanted to be but it was a fantastic week.

We had a beautiful stay in your cosy and lovely house! So much to explore and the gardens are like fairyland! We will definitely return! Thank you so much for creating such a sanctuary. Arcalia is like a long past ´country living´ dream come alive!

Thank you for a wonderful two weeks in your gorgeous house, it was just lovely! We hope to be back soon!

Arcalia had everything that we required - privacy, views, location, swimming pool, table tennis, incredible furnishings and fittings! Perfect!

Thank you so much for such a wonderful stay- we are so reluctant to ever leave. The house and grounds are absolutely stunning; it is impeccably decorated and so well equipped for all ages. Our children loved it so much we could only persuade them to leave the house once in the whole week! Thank you and we very much hope to return soon.

Thank you for this beautiful holiday, a home away from home where soul and body meet each other to rejuvenate. Such attention to detail. Arcalia has amazing energy!

What can we say - An absolutely beautiful house, wonderfully located and beautifully equipped. Everything was just so. We loved the pool, we just wish we had another week here! The house is very well located for attractions; Port Issac, Fowey and Lanhydrock, Rock etc etc. I dont think it gets much better than sitting with a glass of something chilled, watching the sun go down and admiring the views from the comfy wooden chairs!

I think we were the lucky family to be the first holiday guests! An amazing house, beautifully and warmly decorated and equipped to perfection. Fabulous position to visit the nearby attractions - huge thank you for the really helpful house book. Our 14 month old twin girls were excellently catered for and it truly was a home from home, we will hopefully be back if its not all booked up! Thank you.
