Eco-friendly escapes

Our eco-friendly collection fights the good fight with a dash of luxury: think sustainable design, rare orchid meadows, electric car chargers and eco technology.

Luxury holidays can now be as eco-friendly as you'd like them to be, and that's just as well, since reducing our carbon footprint has never been more important. Here at Unique Homestays, we are fully committed to finding eco-friendly homes that retain our stylish stamp. For our wholly sustainable staycations, the beauty is in the eco detail. We've sourced properties where wildlife takes centre stage in the surrounding grounds, with beehives in re-wilded meadows, reclaimed interiors and non-emission technologies.

Eco homestays involve looking after this wonderful planet of ours, so it's here for the long run for others to enjoy. We are committed to providing luxury properties where the planet and native wildlife is at the forefront of clever design and ingenious architecture. Whether the destination of choice is the Lake District or the Welsh Coast, Cornwall or Ireland, our beautiful homes provide guilt-free and retreats for eco warriors of all ages.
