Guest Feedback and Testimonials

Feedback is of utmost importance to us here at Unique Home Stays, and we love to hear back from our guests to ensure that we have not only fulfilled, but exceeded their expectations every step of the way. But don't just take our word for it, read what previous clients have said about Forelle below:

Really good standard of accommodation - a very comfortable and modern conversion. The welcome hamper when we arrived was really lovely and we were met by the owners which was a lovely touch. Thank you.

Beautiful house, beautifully equipped, Sue and Simon were lovely and left plenty of contact numbers for us. We had a wonderful time.

The house was beautiful - it was in a stunning location, very quiet and tranquil, but perfectly located for the beach, pub and exploring the area. The house was incredibly well equipped and beautifully decorated, and the hosts were great. We couldn´t have asked for more.

Absolutely beautiful property in a fabulous location, we are already missing it!

Thank you for a wonderful time at Forelle. We were impressed with the high standard of the property and its facilities. After a long drive we were thankful for the lovely welcome basket. Highlights of our trip included Crantock beach, The Lizard and lunch at Fifteen. It was our children´s first visit to Cornwall and they loved it! Thank you again.

Thank you Sue and Simon for a wonderful break in your lovely barn. Everything was perfect and so thoughtful. We have enjoyed some great walks along the beaches and coastline paths, we especially loved Crantock Beach! Can highly recommend Smugglers Den and Offshore for some great food! We also visited St Ives which was lovely. Mylo our Labrador has had a great time. Your pretty garden and seating area is delightful and we hope to be back soon if we can! Thank you again, you are the best Unique Home Stay cottage we have experienced!

What´s not to love? The sun shone and the birds sang! Beautiful weather, lovely cottage, great food, Cornwall at its best. We return home with colour in our cheeks and great memories.

What a fabulous little place! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, a beautiful appointed cottage with absolutely everything we required for a short break. We shall certainly be returning soon.

Thankyou so very much for such a warm and friendly welcome. We have really enjoyed our short break at Forelle. You have made a beautiful holiday home for all your guests. We hope to return!

What a wonderful place to have our Honeymoon and first Christmas as Mr & Mrs! We´ve enjoyed some lovely walks with the Beagle and visits to the beaches in the area. We´ve dined, drank and relaxed far too much for our own good! Thank you to Simon and Sue for being so helpful and friendly and for our lovely gift and cooked breakfast. We´ll be telling all our friends and family about Forelle. We´ve made some fabulous memories here, it´s a fantastic gem and we will be back.

What a great find- everything we had hoped for and more. Our week has flown by and it has been so nice to come "home" each day to such welcoming surroundings. The 30 minute stroll down to Holywell bay was lovely. We also completed a circular walk from Holywell to Crantock along the cliff path which had superb views. You can find the route on the ´i walk´ app. Good food at Offshore and at Bistro on the Holywell Road.

This is our first family holiday and we have had an amazing week! We have spent our days going for walks along the lovely beaches, taking in great scenery- our four month old daughter loved seeing the sea for the first time. We´ve also enjoyed some great lunches and loved visiting the Eden project. One of the highlights has been coming back in the evenings and chilling in this beautiful home, such a lovely place to come back to. It is very warm and cosy and our four month old daughter has slept better than ever. We couldn´t have asked for more! We hope to come back soon.

What can we say?! We had a lovely week down here in Cornwall, made extra special by staying at Forelle which is set in a beautiful and peaceful location. The cottage itself is gorgeous with everything here that we needed and finished to such a high standard. We loved the walk to Holywell Bay and our dog Buddy particularly enjoyed the beach and sand dunes. We visited Perranporth, Padstow, Watergate Bay and Newquay - all offering something different and all within easy reach of the property! We loved our stay here and highly recommend.

This really is a delightful property in a fabulous location and made a great base for exploring the region. It proves the old saying of ´you get what you pay for!´, in my opinion Forelle represents fantastic value for money.

We had such a peaceful, enjoyable stay at Forelle. A much needed break and a wonderful way to spend my 40th birthday. Our dogs loved it too. I think they have the holiday blues, as do we! We hope to return again next year.

Absolutely stunning property in a fabulous private location. All facilities catered for and it is within walking distance to the pub and the beach. Simon made us feel very welcome and was not at all intrusive during our stay. We loved it!

We had a lovely stay. The property is in a fantastic location for walking and the pub which is also within walking distance is lovely.

It was the cosiest place we have ever stayed in..and everything was so beautifully thought out.

It was wonderful, everything was perfect. The property is in such a great location and the local pub, the Smugglers Inn has a great atmosphere!

My husband and I returned to Forelle for our wedding anniversary, having stayed for our honeymoon a year earlier. We returned as our previous experience was outstanding- the barn is beautifully decorated, set amongst beautiful gardens and views across the hills, in a great location close to beaches and walks through the fields but remote enough to only hear birds, a one min drive to the smugglers inn (a great pub!) or not too far from beautiful beaches and surrounding towns. Our hosts Sue and Simon were brilliant! We had the perfect relaxing holiday, and hope to return next year for another stay as we had two great experiences at Forelle. Thanks again!

The hamper was a really nice surprise and Sue and Simon also provided a cooked breakfast in the fridge for the following morning.

Forelle was pure bliss. It was totally set up to the highest quality and Sue and Simon were really great on arrival. Unique Home Stays has a great amount of info and and pictures on the cottage and the barn totally exceeded our expectations. Would definitely return! And would definitly use Unique Home Stays again as well.

We really enjoyed our stay - very relaxing and the owners were great; you couldnt want for anymore.

Im trying to keep Unique Home Stays and the property a secret, but now that we are aware it will be on Caroline Quentins Cornwall programme, I fear we will find it difficult to book again as it will be so popular. It is a fantastic place, and Sue and Simon were the most fantastic hosts. The local pub wasn´t far which was a huge added bonus. A beautiful, sedate location and the property was gorgeously furnished and appointed. We look forward to many more stays with Unique Home Stays. Please keep us advised of new properties. You guys provide a great service, keep up the good work.

Fantastic holiday barn. Owners were very helpful especially with the Smugglers Den within walking distance.

Loved the tranquility and the views at the property. The owner was friendly & helpful. The Unique web site and booking service is the best we have come across. We are planning a return visit for next year.

It was a beautiful property. Everything that we needed was provided and it was very comfortable. The views were out of this world and the garden was fabulous. We certainly enjoyed our stay and would recommend it to anyone.

Idyllic property in a wonderful setting. We all loved it.

Thank you very much, we had a fantastic time at Forelle. Such a lovely property in a special location.

Dream home in idyllic location. Home from home but even better! Loved it!
