Discover what Unique Home Stays guests think of their unique escapes

The Pomegranate Tree, South Molton, Devon, UK

We have had a wonderful time at The Pomegranate Tree. The house and grounds were above and beyond our expectations and the location is idyllic. This was simply a perfect holiday. Thank you. We will most certainly be using Unique Home Stays for future breaks, and we will be recommending you to family and friends.

Romany, Rye, East Sussex, UK

We have used Unique Home Stays before and we simply love the properties that are available - they are unlike any we see anywhere else. The option to take the dog is great too!

Ellesmera Mill, Dartmouth, Devon, UK

We loved the whole experience of booking with Unique Home Stays and the friends who stayed with us at Ellesmera Mill are looking to book for themselves! We cannot wait for our next holiday with you. Thank you.

The Herringbone, Mousehole, Cornwall, UK

Our stay at The Herringbone was outstanding! The number one feedback I can give you is that our stay and the property exactly met your promise and our expectations! Everything was well prepared, very clean and in order. The support and service were excellent, and we received great recommendations for restaurants, cafes and stores. Also, the upfront information on how to proceed to the house in Mousehole and the parking instructions were perfect. All in all, a great experience. We will book again via Unique Home Stays!

The Poet´s Hideaway, St Breward, Cornwall, UK

We had a wonderful time at The Poet´s Hideaway. This place is well situated and beautifully decorated! We appreciated spending time in the cottage, to curl up with a book in the "old reading room" and to explore the area. We are very happy with the whole experience we had with Unique Home Stays, and will certainly be in contact with you again for forthcoming holidays.

Faraway House, Brecon Beacons, Wales, UK

We are extremely impressed with our first experience of booking with you. Everything was done so well, in a timely manner and with an enormous amount of thought put into making it a seamless booking experience. The best by far we have experienced in staying in luxury properties across the UK in the past 10 years.

Skyros, Schull, County Cork, Republic of Ireland

Our stay at Skyros was excellent. It is an exceptional property and we felt very at home as soon as we got there. The welcome hamper was bountiful with local goodies and there were fresh flowers waiting for us - it´s those little touches that make all the difference. We are seasoned travellers and Skyros went beyond our expectations. It is modern, very well equipped with everything we needed and in a great location. It´s also comfortable and homely and drew us back from our excursions sooner than planned so that we could enjoy the place as much as possible! The sea views are incredible and ever-changing. It felt very secluded - which is something we love. We were also blessed with unexpectedly great weather - lots of sunshine - so got to make use of the BBQ and outdoor furniture - something we were not expecting in late September. All in all a perfect stay - we felt very lucky! I suspect we will return again. We have used Unique Home Stays before and would use you again in the future. The quality of properties and service the team provides are always first-rate and that goes a long way!

Wishbone, Malvern Hills, Worcestershire, UK

We had a wonderful time at Wishbone, it was even better than I had imagined! It is breathtakingly beautiful and we really didn´t want to leave. Thank you for the accuracy of the website information, we did not find anything lacking in any way! The owners are lovely and the surrounding countryside is beautiful. We are currently looking to book somewhere for the same time next year and hope to use Unique Home Stays again as you have been so reliable, accurate and helpful.

Saphir Beach House, Mawgan Porth, Cornwall, UK

We had a week to either go home or find somewhere last minute and have stayed with Unique Home Stays several times, so logged onto the site to have a look. It was all very last minute, however, the team were incredibly helpful and within 12 hours we stepped into an unmitigated paradise. The views over Mawgan Porth and the headland could not have been bettered. The house is really well equipped and has a very comforting family feel - the owners have obviously put a lot of love into this place. Outside, there is a surround-deck with beautiful views over the beach and sea. As well as a lovely indoor kitchen there’s an outdoor kitchen with all you could want - it’s a cooks dream. Early evenings in the hammock with a book watching the sunset will stay with us forever. Thank you, to the Unique Home Stays team for what turned out to be our best Cornish holiday yet.

Burdock Fox, Castle Combe, Wiltshire, UK

We absolutely loved our stay at Burdock Fox. We spent 4 weeks travelling through Europe and we all agree that Castle Combe was our favourite spot. The property is peaceful and perfectly appointed. Paulina, the housekeeper, is lovely. And on top of it all, the location was like that of a storybook! Finally, we´d like to thank Unique Home Stays for executing every detail of our stay so seamlessly. We hope to be back next year.

Heidi, Roseland Peninsula, Cornwall, UK

Our family enjoyed staying at Heidi for our vacation. The service from both Unique Home Stays and the property owner were perfect and responsive. The property is perfectly located in a large field, allowing for a lot of privacy and bringing you close to nature. The cows saying good morning to you from the adjacent field is lovely! Heidi is centrally located in Cornwall, with the path across the field bringing you to Portloe and the coastal path, and allowed us to see other pretty places in the area such as Truro, St. Ives as well as surfing in the Atlantic Ocean.

Atticus, Burford, Oxfordshire, UK

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.

Firefly, Mawgan Porth, Cornwall, UK

What a beautiful retreat! We were able to relax just sat out on the porch in all weathers and let time just pass us by while enjoying this home. The music on the iPad, the well-appointed kitchen, the hot tub and fire were all fantastic. A great stay in a location that was within easy reach of everything we wanted. The Unique Home Stays team could not have been more helpful and on hand within minutes! A great level of service which we very much appreciated.

Hinterland Cabin, Conwy, Wales, UK

We were looking for a private, dog-friendly, luxurious and unique property to celebrate our anniversary weekend. We don´t like big hotels and always like to find something just a little different to the norm. The facilities inside and outside of Hinterland Cabin were perfect and just what we were hoping for. Possibly one of the best weekends away in this country we have ever enjoyed! The thoughtfulness of the added extras were super special, and a fabulous garden with an amazing view for us and our four-legged friend to enjoy was a huge bonus. Finding somewhere as special as Hinterland Cabin next year is going to be very difficult, we loved, loved, loved it! Everything exceeded our hopes and our expectations, both in terms of the property and of our experience with Unique Home Stays, from the booking procedures to the level of service. We will definitely use you again and so many of our friends have seen our photographs and are already looking at your website and at Hinterland Cabin itself! Thank you so much for helping us to enjoy this corner of paradise and such a fabulous little Welsh hideaway.

Sea Cabin, St Agnes, Cornwall, UK

We could not have asked for better service. The property standards of Sea Cabin and its location exceeded all of our expectations. This is our second holiday through Unique Home Stays, and both stays have been delightful!

The Matchbox, Rye, East Sussex, UK

We have had a lovely stay and The Matchbox is delightful, the standards of the property exceeded our expectations. The location is superb; very secluded and within walking distance to a very quiet beach. This is the second time we’ve used Unique Home Stays for a special occasion, and the process has always been very professional, courteous and the properties are amazing. Thank you.

The Wool Shed, Newquay, Cornwall, UK

We have had a wonderful time at the Wool Shed - thank you. It is absolutely perfect and quite idyllic - a real gem! Thank you and the team for ensuring that our stay was smooth, as always!

Atticus, Burford, Oxfordshire, UK

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!

Atticus, Burford, Oxfordshire, UK

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.

Sweetpea Cottage, Crantock, Cornwall, UK

We have booked with Unique Home Stays for the last 5 or 6 years and have always found your properties lovely, and the service from you has always been impeccable and very helpful.

River House, St Just In Roseland, Cornwall, UK

The professional and attentive service provided by Unique Home Stays is very impressive. From the moment you first click on the website to the end of your stay, you know you are in good hands! River House is absolutely beautiful inside and out. The views are very special and we felt pampered by the whole experience from start to finish. The welcoming touches of fresh flowers and the hamper were very indulgent, and got the week of to a great start after a long journey! The owner is so lovely and made sure that we were happy with everything and were having a good week, and was also very prompt and generous in sending us an item that we had left behind. Thank you so much!

The Sea Rose, Cadgwith Cove, Cornwall, UK

This was my first time booking through Unique Home Stays and the experience was great. Communication was top notch. The property certainly was unique and I enjoyed my time in Cadgwith very much, so much so that I hardly wanted to leave the house, as a matter of fact! The village is so lovely and everyone from the fish seller to the servers at the pub were incredibly welcoming and friendly. My only regret is that I could not stay longer!

Alchemy Hill, Hay-On-Wye, Herefordshire, UK

Unique Home Stays always offers an excellent service; and they are always my first choice when booking a property. Alchemy Hill was a delight to stay in and the owner, Juliette, could not have been more helpful. The house is secluded yet not far from the nearest town, and had plenty of outdoor space. Everything about the property is outstanding and every detail is thought through. The welcome basket was amazing! Thank you.

Atticus, Burford, Oxfordshire, UK

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.

Filly Island, Cirencester, Gloucestershire, UK

We absolutely loved Filly Island, and it has wonderful owner. This is the first time we have used Unique Home Stays and we were certainly not disappointed. Many thanks for a great experience!

The Aviary, Moreton-in-Marsh, Gloucestershire, UK

The level of service received and the quality of the home was excellent. We love the fact that there was ample amounts of everything we could have needed and more! Thank you, very much.

Filly Island, Cirencester, Gloucestershire, UK

Excellent correspondence throughout the booking process.... Mouse, the property owner is delightful and went over and above to make us feel welcome. Thank you for such superb service.

Firefly, Mawgan Porth, Cornwall, UK

Thank you for this slice of peace and quiet and a beautiful space, in which the small details perfectly combine with the overall design; one day I hope to build something as amazing as Firefly! Such a perfect place to retreat to.

Figtree House, Kirkby Lonsdale, Cumbria, UK

What a wonderful weekend we had at Figtree House in Kirkby Lonsdale. The booking process with Unique Home Stays was very simple and the service I received when contacting them with queries was faultless. The property is stunning and in such a beautiful location. The house is so beautifully furnished with very thoughtful touches from Dorothy, the owner. We arrived to be personally welcomed, with the heating already on and two fires roaring. The welcome basket and food provided was top quality produce, we had pretty flowers around the house, enjoyed beautiful bed linen, towels and bathroom products. I really couldn´t fault the property. It is truly stunning and all my guests travelling in from London and overseas were bowled over! I hired in a hot tub which made it extra special and Dorothy facilitated the installation, meeting the company beforehand and on the day for me so it was all set up and ready to use as guests arrived. Dorothy is a first class host, Unique Home Stays is a first class company, and Figtree House is a first class property. A truly wonderful weekend and one that I will never forget! Thank you.

August House, Norwich, Norfolk, UK

This was the first time I have ever used Unique Home Stays, and I was particularly impressed with the continuity of service and personnel. Whenever I called I spoke to someone who knew the property, who was happy to help with any issues, and always called me back or responded to my emails. Well done!

Phillimores, Kingsbridge, Devon, UK

I should say that the main reason we book with you is the standard of your properties but the other is the great service. This is another example of that. We’ll be booking again and recommending you to others.

Lost Cottage, Glenbeigh, County Kerry, Republic of Ireland

We love Unique Home Stays! The properties are beautifully presented and always live up to the images and descriptions. A stay is worth every penny when you get so much luxury and home comfort in some of the most stunning parts of the UK.

The Found, Woodbridge, Suffolk, UK

This is the fifth year we have used Unique Home Stays and love you as a company - we have never been disappointed with the accommodation. Every house we have stayed in has been wonderful in its own right. Thank you, we will be back somewhere with you next year.

The Wilds, Brecon Beacons, Wales, UK

From the start, the level of service provided was beyond my expectations and the team could not have done enough. I would almost definitely look to book again. The property was far better than expected and all the outside space was fantastic, we especially loved the bench behind the house that was perfectly positioned with the most amazing views. It was truly beautiful.

The Edge, Whitsand Bay, Cornwall, UK

It was a truly special weekend, we expect excellence and we got it. I always feel confident booking via Unique Home Stays. Thank you.

Goldhorn, Ilminster, Somerset, UK

Unique Home Stays is by far the most superior holiday rental company we have ever used. You have fabulous properties, your team are always very responsive and super helpful. I love that I can ring up and actually speak to someone who knows what they are talking about and is enthusiastic about what they do, that doesn´t happen much these days unfortunately.

Rydon, Teign Valley, Devon, UK

Dealing with Unique Home Stays was a real joy. We found the team to be efficient, effective, knowledgeable and friendly. I will be using you again and recommending whenever possible. I will also be contacting you in the future about potentially representing one of my own properties.

The Stack, Trelion, Cornwall, UK

Your level of customer service is a rare find indeed. You continued to excel every time we had any communication with you, whether this was verbally or electronically. I can endorse that Unique Home Stays certainly do hold keys to homes with heart and provide the gift of specialising in remarkable luxury home stays that simply can’t be found elsewhere, thus enabling guests to indulge in and experience. You are without doubt, leaders in your field. Thank you, we look forward to staying once again sometime in the future.

Skyros, Schull, County Cork, Republic of Ireland

I want to thank Unique Home Stays for opening my eyes. You have somehow developed the ability to find places of true wonder, only matched by your ability to find the unique accommodation that resides there. We have used you a few times now and are always blown away. It really is trip of a lifetime kind of stuff.

Zamani, Hawling, Gloucestershire, UK

We have stayed in four Unique Home Stays properties so far, ranging from very big to a very small cottage and they have all been fantastic. We always receive excellent help, advice and information from your staff which makes booking easy and stress free. Thank you once again for a superb holiday, see you next year!

Arcalia, Blisland, Cornwall, UK

We have used Unique Home Stays on a number of occasions and the service we received has always been excellent. The properties have always been beautifully presented, immaculately clean and with an excellent welcome pack. We have used some of your competitors and have been very disappointed. We will use Unique Home Stays again and frequently recommend you.

Hinterland Cabin, Conwy, Wales, UK

We absolutely loved Hinterland Cabin and, after booking a number of holiday cottages over the years through different companies and feeling let down by the standards, I could not have been more pleased when we arrived. We felt instantly at home and I think that is the key, we do have a beautiful house and high standards ourselves so to find a match with a holiday home is hard to find. We were so happy with Unique Home Stays we will be booking our July holiday with you in Cornwall.

Peacock Blue, Holne, Devon, UK

You are simply the best people in the world. Your portfolio of cottages are sublime. Peacock Blue will always be a favourite with us, it was perfect in every way. I was lost for words which is a first for me. We will book again and again through you.

Firefly, Mawgan Porth, Cornwall, UK

We have stayed in a number of your properties and each one has been superb and has had something special (unique) about it, making it difficult to choose an actual favourite. I think the one thing that means the most to us now, is the knowledge and therefore, peace of mind, that we know it is ´going to be good´! We can look forward to our holiday without any apprehension. We would love for you to have properties in France, so we could name that same trip, with that same peace of mind!

The Find, Cheltenham, Gloucestershire, UK

Both the property and Unique Home Stays are excellent and we have already recommended both to a number of people. You are the most professional holiday let company we have ever dealt with. You thought of everything and anticipated all our needs. It was wonderful to receive all your timely emails to ensure we were fully prepared for our break and nothing was overlooked.

The Found, Woodbridge, Suffolk, UK

We have returned from a fabulous stay in one of Unique Home Stays´ amazing properties. To say we were ´wowed´ is an understatement. Every detail had been thought through. The most professional holiday let company we have ever dealt with - pro active, helpful and totally organised. You made our stay very easy and the welcome hamper was an added bonus. We will be back!

Firefly, Mawgan Porth, Cornwall, UK

If only all agents had your level of service, kindness and competence! We enjoyed every minute of our break at Firefly, what an inspiring cottage.

The Sea Rose, Cadgwith Cove, Cornwall, UK

The properties are the highest standard that I have come across and I have rented a lot of cottages. Some of the locations are breathtaking. The web site is the best that I have ever seen and the number of photographs is brilliant. You are a very classy organisation and should be very proud.

Goldhorn, Ilminster, Somerset, UK

We will definitely use Unique Home Stays for future getaways as you really deliver what you advertise. You provide an excellent service and high end properties for all the family to enjoy. We will certainly recommend Unique Home Stays to our friends.

The Osprey, Windermere, Cumbria, UK

The Unique Home Stays website is excellent. All communications have been excellent; very efficient and well thought out. It couldn´t have been easier to book and pay. All information was also well thought out and easily accessible. We were very impressed with Unique Home Stays and the property we stayed at.

The Herringbone, Mousehole, Cornwall, UK

Would just like to say that everything about our holiday from the original booking to the hospitality on arrival and departure was fantastic. Can not wait to book again with you guys.

The Fish Store, Mousehole, Cornwall, UK

I would just like to take this opportunity to thank all involved with our Unique Home Stay. The accommodation was amazing and exceeded everyone´s expectations, simply 10/10! Your correspondence and information in the build up to the trip was exemplary and the whole process ran smoothly from start to finish. I will definitely be using your services again soon.
