Testimonials

We really enjoyed our stay at Valency Wood - the property is stunning and the location perfect. Having never used Unique Home Stays before we were unsure of what to expect. The information provided before our trip was great and the welcome hamper was fab. The property had everything we needed, and the owner was a great host. He took us on a tour of his land and let the children drive his farm buggy! We would definitely recommend Valency Wood and Unique Home Stays, and we can´t wait to stay here again!

We loved our stay at Wool Merchant’s House. We were so warmly greeted by the housekeeper and the welcome basket was abundant and impressive! It is stylish, charming, has multiple spaces to relax in and has both an open fire and a woodburner. We will definitely book the house again and we have been very impressed with our booking experience and the help from the Unique Home Stays staff. Unique Home Stays has moved to the top of our list! We really look forward to using your services again!

From the moment we walked into The Carriage House we felt at home. The level of detail in the design is amazing, every aspect of the interior and exterior has been thought out to a high standard. The location is great as it enabled us to explore a lot of the surrounding areas. This house is perfect for all wanting a truly relaxing break. We enjoyed nights in around the log burner and the peacefulness of the surrounding area. I would strongly recommend this property and the service from Unique Home Stays.

I love Unique Home Stays as I can rely on them for top-notch holiday houses! It´s worth every penny as I know I will be delighted with the property and service. Thanks again and looking forward to choosing somewhere else for another special occasion!

I very much enjoyed the process of booking with Unique Home Stays. The online booking system is clear, simple and easy. You have lovely homes and as far as I´m concerned, you have a customer for life!

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.

We very much enjoy staying at properties that feel like a home-from-home, and The Flower Press is perfect. It is absolutely beautiful inside and out! It´s a stunning property, the attention to detail is spot on and also a lot bigger than we expected. Thank you for making the process very easy when booking with you. My parents and I have had a very relaxing break which is just what we wanted! We will definitely be booking with Unique Home Stays again. Thank you to the owners for letting us stay in their beautiful home!

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!

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.

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!

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.

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.

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.

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. 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.

Our family enjoyed staying at Nare’s Yard for our vacation. The service from both Unique Homestays and the property owner were perfect and responsive. The property is perfectly located combining a private setting and close to nature experience. The cows saying good morning to you from the adjacent field is lovely! Centrally located within Cornwall, we explored areas from Truro to St Ives, while the path across the field brings you to Portloe and joins the coastal path, so great to explore on foot too!

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.

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.

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!

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.

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!

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 the host was very welcoming when we arrived. She was 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!

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.

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!

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.

We had the most enjoyable stay at Atticus despite the rain! 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 Spritz 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.

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 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.

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

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.

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!

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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!

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.

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.

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.

We had a lovely stay thank you. The house is gorgeous and the owner very kind and helpful. The location was great and just what we wanted. Our dog, Indie, had a grand time swimming in the sea, it was great we could bring her along with us. The hamper was fab and we´d been left a few local provisions so we had a lovely fresh breakfast on Saturday morning. Even Indie had some treats! The booking was easy and well organised, everything worked really well. I´ve already recommended Unique Home Stays to friends and we´d be very happy to book through you again.

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!

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.

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!

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.

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.

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.

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.
