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 guests have said about Elysian below:

Wow! We cannot thank you enough for making our stay so beautifully peaceful, just as we had imagined. You really have thought of every last detail to ensure your guests have the best stay! Reading in the summer house and drinking wine by the log fire were a particular favourite. Thank you for the hamper, we shall use it for many more trips and what a great way for us to remember Elysian. We will definitely be back.

We Loved our stay here. Highly recommend Elysian to anyone who┤s looking for a peaceful relaxing stay in the countryside. We had everything we needed and more... all the little touches made our stay even more amazing. We will be back again for sure. P.s. The walks around here are beautiful!

We had such a wonderful stay at Elysian. Perfect place for us girls to enjoy Cornwall and all it has to offer. We cooked here every day and loved the Aga! Thank you for a beautiful stay.

We had an absolutely lovely time. The welcome pack was very much appreciated. Perfect location for exploring North and South coast as well as the local area. The Aga was fun to use, we ate a few times in the cottage, however we did also eat at the Manor Arms. Their food was lovely and they were very friendly. We are looking forward to using Unique Home Stays again.

Thank you so much for a wonderful mini-break in Elysian. We wish we could have stayed longer, but it was just long enough to relax and unwind. Beautiful countryside and beaches and a marvellous lunch at The Springer Spaniel. I even managed to cook my first ever beef stew in the Aga! Many thanks for being so wonderfully welcoming.

Thank you for letting us share your beautiful home. Everything has been relaxing, comfortable, peaceful and just perfect! Thank you to Jane for making us feel very welcome and for all the wonderful goodies. I think from all the Unique Home Stays properties we have stayed in so far this has been our favourite. We look forward to returning soon.

Thank you for allowing us to share your unique and magical home. We loved the interiors - so calming and restful. It really is a small slice of heaven. From the rugged moorlands to the peaceful pretty gardens, the lovely farm shop with local food and the warm welcome from Jane the housekeeper, it has left us with wonderful memories we shall treasure for a long time. A truly memorable holiday!

Thank you for a fantastic stay in this beautiful cottage. We had all kinds of weather from snow to glorious sunshine! The perfect cottage made for a perfect stay.

Just a quick note to say how much mum, Claudia and I enjoyed our weekend at Elysian and how much we loved the cottage! The decor is poetic - the upstairs room looks like a stage set for a play about a Victorian enthusiast of natural history. Youĺve done a wonderful job - it feels a very special place.

Our second stay at a Unique Home Stay cottage, and did not disappoint, so peaceful and cosy. Despite indifferent weather we managed to find sunshine most days on the North or South coast. Thank you.

It is safe to say that we have found a truly special place. We have fallen in love with Elysian and its rustic charm. From exploring the local trails through the woodland to evenings spent by the fire, hunting down traditional Cornish pasties, enjoying regular lie ins and simply sitting taking in the silence; we loved every moment spent in this beautiful place! If you have a special occasion we highly recommend Paul Ainsworths in Padstow! Thanks to all at Unique Home Stays for a week will remember fondly.

Everything went beautifully. The cottage is magical and has joined my short list of all-time favourites. I did some walking in Stara woods and along the river while mum and Claudia did jigsaws by the fire. We also loved the Springer Spaniel. So thank you for your help.

Elysian was absolutely lovely. It was very relaxing and cosy but with all the mod cons. The sun came out and it was so peaceful. For trips we recommend Seaton Beach (dog friendly), The Springer Spaniel Pub for good food and Boscastle village.

Elysian is a true sanctuary. From the moment we arrived we slipped straight into relaxation mode. Awaking to birdsong really is quite special when used to city living, and the surrounding countryside walks are just beautiful.The cottage is in a lovely spot, hidden away from all life┤s stresses but yet not far from the conveniences if you need them. Thank you for giving us this little piece of heaven! It was perfect for a spring break, with the fire and Aga and all the interesting furnishings, all we needed was a big snowfall so we could stay forever!

An enchanting cottage in such a peaceful location, just the sound of birdsong and the occasional clip-clopping of horses hooves was perfect. We would recommend Harlyn Cove on the North Coast for a beautiful, sandy dog-friendly beach. The Springier Spaniel Pub, owned by the winner of Masterchef 2012, (it is best to book a table) does wonderful food and great puddings if you have a sweet tooth. Rick Steins in Padstow is definitely worth a visit too. This is our second stay with Unique Home Stays and we will definitely be back. The homes are so special and you think of everything. Just marvelous, thank you.

A beautiful hideaway which is peaceful and relaxing with everything you could need.
