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 Atticus below:

Atticus is a mixture of history and modernity, everything in it is perfect. The interior design, the cleanliness, the attention to detail, everything made us feel at home. We didn┤t want to leave! We have stayed with Unique Home Stays before and it┤s honestly always the best service we receive compared to other agents worldwide. You should expand your services across the globe, the Unique Home Stays team and the housekeepers are very helpful. You are the best! Thank you again for everything.

This is the second time we have booked with Unique Home Stays and have been very happy both times. We will definitely book again the next time we return to the UK. Atticus is an absolutely beautiful house and Jacqui, the house manager, was very welcoming when we arrived and able to give us lots of great tips and advice about the local area, as well as making sure our stay would be a comfortable and relaxing one! Thank you so much for great service from start to finish! See you again soon!

For sure, our stay at Atticus and the Cotswolds has been wonderful in every way, and for all ages (3 generations)! The Old Court is spectacular with lovely and comfortable decor, immaculately clean throughout and in a superb location. The library flooded with the morning sun is the perfect place to enjoy coffee. Cozy places provide quiet play areas for children, and the courtroom for evening gatherings created enjoyment throughout. Jacqui met us graciously and responded to our few questions promptly. Her recommendations for restaurants, sightseeing and drivers were all excellent. This truly has been a memorable vacation and everyone is sad to leave. We all hope to return. Thank you for providing such a high quality property, detailed information, and for your input during and after our stay. We have trust that Unique Home Stays maintains very high standards for all their properties. Thank you! We shall visit again.

We had the most enjoyable stay at Atticus despite the wall to wall rainfall! We were able to lounge around the house without getting in each other┤s way and the only regret was that we didn┤t get to spend any time in the garden due to the weather. The vision of sitting out there in the sunshine with an Aperol spritzer disappeared into the clouds! A highlight of the week was the wonderful dinner provided by Paul Bernard, an outstanding experience! This is our second booking with Unique Home Stays and as with the previous stay, everything was simply spot on.

What a perfect place to spend my 65th birthday, it has been amazing from start to finish. Your house is superb and I wish it was ours! This has been our first weekend away with our new grandchildren and we have just had the most enjoyable time. We also used Paul from Tailor Made Top Nosh on my birthday - we have used him before, and we would highly recommend. Thank you once again, we will be back.

What a wonderful home in a gorgeous village, a beautifully finished house, and so warm and welcoming. This home is a credit to its owners and they really have thought of everything. We have had a really lovely time and will be back in the near future. A fantastic host also, thank you so much.

This house is so much fun! There is no better way to begin the day than by walking into the distinguished, old courtroom with the sun beaming in through the windows and a cup of coffee in hand. Each room has its own personality and simple attraction, inviting a question or two about its past and stories. The hill itself leads to more fun, strolling through the streets of Burford. It is a bit of a trip into a fable of yesteryear. Thank you!

Atticus is a stunning property. We loved the bathroom tiles and the gorgeous windows. Such a brilliant location; so close to the town but quiet. It is an amazing house and so beautifully decorated. Thank you.

What a wonderful home to be able to spend a few days, it is utterly gorgeous. The perfect place for a perfect weekend with friends. We will definitely be back!

Jacqui was incredible and helped so very much, she was so kind! We had an amazing stay and spent most of our time in the 2nd floor living area when we were at the house. We thoroughly enjoyed the entire home though, and we had many games of scrabble by the fires in the dining and living areas. Thank you for a wonderful visit.

We loved it here in this wonderful home and this pretty village. With roaring fires and glasses full, we celebrated a family Christmas. Three generations of the family cosily nestled here for everyone┤s delight; from New Zealand, USA, Ireland and England. We enjoyed roasted meats from the local butchers, a full board of cheeses from the local dairy and granny playing the piano! We all had a wonderful time. Atticus was so wonderfully warm, light and comfortable. Thank you Jacqui; we┤re grateful for your hospitality and your delicious welcome basket of local goodies too!

Atticus is a lovely property and sits proudly at the top of Burford Hill. The house is brimming with character and has been furnished and cared for beautifully. We arrived to a crackling fire, a fantastic welcome pack with chilled Bubbly, it doesn┤t get much better than that! We will be back.

What a wonderful house! Every room is decorated with such attention to detail. As a family of nine with three children, we felt at home and really enjoyed our stay. Atticus was always lovely and warm with plenty of logs for the fire. The village is beautiful and so friendly. Jacqui, who greeted us on arrival was so helpful and friendly, she really spent time making us feel at home. We will be telling all our friends about this wonderful house. We would love to come back one day.

As soon as we walked through the front door we knew we had chosen well. As we were shown around by Jacqui, the house kept surprising us at every corner. The courtroom is a real "wow" feature. Lovely furniture, furnishings and divine beds. We slept very well and had a great time.

Wow wow, wow! Such a a beautiful home, we loved it. The interiors were so fabulous but also so relaxing and an oasis in such a vibrant village. It was an honour to stay in such a historical building and imagine the conversations that have occurred here. I can not recommend this house enough and can┤t wait to come back!

As South Africans, Atticus has been such a spoil. We have really enjoyed the welcome basket and the housekeeper has been extremely helpful. We are now leaving refreshed, recharged and full of appreciation. Thank you for making our time in Burford so special, we are very grateful!

We had an amazing and relaxing time at Atticus. The transformation of the house is stunning inside and out. Much has already been said about the stunning interiors, very little to add other than it is really, really impressive. In addition to the traditional interior themes, the entertainment system enables a subtle addition of quiet background music from a smartphone to the discreetly placed speakers, for music of your choice, wherever you need it. The patio is secluded and a lovely place to sit and relax in the fresh air. As for Burford, it´s a lovely Cotswold village with excellent walks to many pubs and restaurants. We had a wonderful stay.

What a sublime place to come to for a weekend break. The tranquillity and peace of the surroundings were only bettered by the beautifully finished decor of the house. It was a real treat to come and stay somewhere with such fantastic and tasteful facilities, and with such excellent historical significance. I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending this gorgeous residence to all who are lucky enough to have the pleasure of staying.

Love, love, love the house. So beautifully decorated but comfortable. The large courtroom is a huge WOW factor. We had a private chef one night which was amazing. We don┤t want to go home!

Wow, what an amazing house! We fell in love with the stained glass window and the snug is an excellent addition for the kids, whilst we enjoyed the beautiful courtroom. So close to the town centre, with brilliant little shops and pubs. We can┤t wait for another visit!

Thank you so much for an absolutely incredible weekend away. What an amazing country escape. The house is immaculate and we felt immediately at home. The outside space is perfect to have an evening glass of wine and catches the sun in the morning for breakfast outside. Being so close to the village was very convenient yet so quiet! We will definitely be visiting again.

What an amazing house! The bedrooms were especially lovely and very comfortable. Hearing the church bells whilst having breakfast outside was perfect. I would definitely recommend this property and we will be back.

A wonderful house to celebrate my birthday with my family. Each room is very special, the decor is stunning and the lounge is amazing; I just wish I could play the piano! Thank you from all of us, including Tilly the dog.

I liked all the yummy treats that I sneakily took when my parents weren┤t looking. I especially liked our room because it had a unicorn picture on the wall and I love unicorns so I found it quite cute. We can┤t wait to come back again.

We came to Atticus to celebrate my husband´s 80th birthday. Burford and Atticus have been perfect. We loved the the wow factor. We had an extremely happy weekend of snow, extreme cold and extreme comfort. Thank you for your attention to detail, and your welcome. We will certainly recommend you.

Rarely have we stayed in a holiday rental that quite simply has it all. A fabulous house, gorgeous interiors and the perfect location. I am renovating a new house soon, and will be stealing lots of ideas from here. Thank you for a fantastic week.

We had a fantastic stay at such a beautiful property. The house is simply stunning and we can´t wait to book again to come back. We loved Burford too, such a lovely village and so dog-friendly.

Thank you. From the moment we stepped into this historic house we were captivated by its warm and welcoming ambience. The impressive attention to detail ensures a very comfortable stay. In addition to the pleasure of being in such a beautifully appointed home, the children had a wonderful time exploring the myriad of rooms and nooks and crannies! We would love to come back.

Well, what can we say about Atticus except wow! The house is stunning and so welcoming. We immediately felt the house┤s warmth enveloping us. The owners have fitted it out to the highest standards throughout with the best of everything available for our use. We will certainly come back and would unreservedly recommend it to everyone.

Wow! What a fantastic place. From the moment we walked in to Atticus, it felt so homely, warm and totally inviting. The decor has been so beautifully put together, the whole house is amazing. The photos really do not do it justice. We have been on lovely countryside walks, visiting numerous pubs and restaurants. The views are to die for - we can┤t wait to return.

A remarkable transformation of the highest standard, suitable for all weathers. It is spacious and delightfully decorated and equipped. Burford is a very interesting town, with many excellent shops and restaurants. Atticus is a joy to return to after a day exploring the area. Congratulations to the owners for providing such a first class base in the Cotswolds.
