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 The Herringbone below:

A fantastic place in a beautiful location. We have stayed here before and will definitely be coming back. It is the perfect bolthole for a couple; beautifully finished and furnished, and a very comfy bed!

Our stay at The Herringbone was amazing - it was everything we hoped it would be. We loved the style of the place, contemporary but cosy. It was perfectly equipped and the goodies in the hamper on arrival were a nice touch. We very much enjoyed the location, being so close to the water and seeing the rhythm of the tides was a very relaxing way to spend a few days.

We wished for a small hideout for our belated honeymoon and The Herringbone had simply everything we were looking for.

It was better than good thanks. It was above and beyond.

Out stay at The Herringbone was perfect in every way. We were very sad to leave what we called ´our little house´ but hopefully we will be back soon.

We had a wonderful stay at The Herringbone, and Mousehole was delightful! The apartment is cosy and the fishing village decor and fabulous view of the harbour was memorable. The kitchen had everything we needed and the gourmet package was much appreciated. All round, a wonderful stay - we’ll be back!

I had a wonderful time in The Herringbone, it was amazing! Thank you to the owners and your team as I have had two weeks of bliss holidaying with Unique Home Stays! Mousehole was incredible, as was Filly Island which I stayed in the week before.

We absolutely loved The Herringbone and the location of it. It was just perfect! The view from the windows were everything we had hoped to find in a little village in Cornwall. The bed was incredibly comfortable and the living area was lovely. The shower was incredible to stand under and I mentioned on more than one occasion that I want one in our bathroom in Sydney. We were greeted upon arrival by "Wallace", the owners´ cat - who was very cute indeed and ended up substituting for my own cat who was at home. The welcome hamper was delicious and we enjoyed everything that was provided - especially the scones, clotted cream and jam upon our arrival as it was late and we were very hungry. On our last day we met the owner and she was lovely, we had a long friendly chat, which was very nice indeed. For your information we came across your organisation through watching a TV show which was shown in Sydney about Cornwall starring Caroline Quentin. We were not aware of Unique Home Stays until then, hence our search on the net found you and the adorable Mousehole home "The Herringbone". Our stay in Cornwall was perfect in every way; the weather was lovely, the people very friendly, our daily venturing out proving glorious around every corner. The local food was amazing and a truly lovely place to stay. Thank you for everything. We will definitely be using you again.

We have had the most fabulous Honeymoon here. The Herringbone is indeed a unique and special little house, and we shall miss Mousehole. What a fabulous and relaxed time. We shall look forward to coming back soon.

The bed was extremely comfortable and we were made to feel very welcome by the owners. The view from the property is stunning. Unique Home Stays were really good, booking was so simple and the reminder emails as to when payments are due was a great help. Thank you to all at The Herringbone and Unique Home Stays, my husband and I really enjoyed our stay for our 25th wedding anniversary.

The location was like being in a movie. It had the old sea shanty charm, and was equipped with modern conveniences (without losing the olden-time charm. We loved having a functional kitchen and some food supplies to get our stay started. The items within The Herringbone were impressive and appropriate; the old maps on the wall, the books on the local area and life on the water, the local newspaper and magazines, the movies on the shelf, the old books: we loved it! We fell in love at first sight.

Thank you so much. I have had a FANTASTIC week in this lovely cottage, and I am already planning my return !

The Herringbone is a stunning property, lovingly restored and developed by the owners, it was a fab property. It can´t be faulted it is exceptional, just don´t tell anyone otherwise we won´t be able to re-book!

We wanted a special place to spend a short place and relax. Mousehole s the perfect location for walking around to places and the Herringbone was perfect for relaxing and watching the world go by. The property was beautiful. Furnished and decorated simply but elegantly. Added to the ambiance and general feeling of relaxation.

We loved the Heringbone; it is a beautiful space in an amazing setting with a gorgeous view. Paul &Jules could not have been more welcoming and we will definitely be going back.
