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 clients have said about Filly Island below:
We totally loved this property, it´s small but perfectly formed. Although we´ve used Unique Home Stays on 4 occasions now, and all have been fantastic properties, I´ve never been moved to provide feedback before. The reason for the feedback is the exceptional effort made by Mouse to make her guests feel at home. Actually taking the time to greet us and show us the property was really unexpected and then she took the time to chat with us about the sort of thing we wanted to do in order to provide personalised recommendations. Overall a really fantastic place to stay.
Recipe for the perfect weekend away: Take two moderately well behaved boys (of both four legged and two legged varieties). Add liberal amounts of water based excitement and miles of walks filled with other friendly dogs. Leave to rest. (A trip to Barnsley House Spa and nearby village pub speeds up this process). Baste with red wine, fine takeaway foods and the hospitality of the villagers of South Cerney. Heat over a traditional wood fire. Enjoy! Thanks Mouse for everything!
Thank you for sharing your beautiful home with us. Perfect in every way, a lovely way to spend our 30th anniversary!
Had a wonderful time! Cottage was beautiful, loads of home comforts and stunning views. Couldn´t fault it. We will definitely be coming back. Perfect spot for our Weimaraner too- Maggie loved it! Looking forward to our next visit.
We had a wonderful time enjoying my birthday on our own private island. We loved just sitting with the door open and listening to the sound of the water flowing by. Just the relaxing and romantic weekend away we needed.
We had a wonderful time at Filly Island, this is a magical place and I feel recharged after four days here. The cottage is so lovely, full of quirks and there is not one attention to detail that has been left out. Chester and I were made to feel welcome from the moment we were greeted on arrival, thank you to Mouse for sharing this wonderful place. We hope to visit again soon.
We enjoyed a lovely four days in this unique and charming cottage. We have thoroughly enjoyed walking from Filly Island to neighbouring villages, along the Thames path and around the Cotswolds water park...such a peaceful and relaxing part of the world!
We had a magical three night stay at Filly Island (´Filly´ being my nickname made our stay even more special!) Thank you to Mouse for making us feel so welcome and for creating such a wonderful stunning place. It has been so quiet and relaxing. Stuart and I will visit again soon for sure.
What a wonderful place and beautiful cottage- thank you for sharing your beautiful home with us. We have had an amazing and relaxing weekend and really do not want to leave. It´s so peaceful and we have really enjoyed our trips out from Filly Island and walks around the surrounding villages.
Thank you for sharing your beautiful home with us. Perfect in every way. It was a lovely way to spend our 30th anniversary. Thank you.
A perfectly idyllic location for an excellent relaxing weekend. The cottage is faultless and the addition of the log-burning stove makes for perfect cosy evenings. With everything that can be explored in the evenings you could easily spend two weeks here! Leo our Frenchie certainly enjoyed all the walks. Thank you!
The island was simply perfect for the rest and relaxation we needed. We explored your suggestions of locations and found them beautiful and idyllic. The food was on point, and the views memorable. I am sure we will revisit in the near future for more of the same. Until we meet again, many thanks.
We had an absolutely fantastic break, and would definitely recommend Filly Island.
A beautiful property and the quality of the facilities were excellent! It is certainly a unique treasure in the Cotswolds. I’ll definitely be using Unique Home Stays again and will be revisiting Filly Island in the future.
Filly Island was beautifully modern, bright and immaculately clean. The owner really have thought of everything!
Thank you for a lovely weekend! The little cottage was perfect and we had a wonderful time. We´d love to come back some time very soon!
We had a wonderful stay- everything was perfect! My partner loved the surprise hamper.
I absolutely loved the design and furnishings of Filly Island. The rustic country and industrial style throughout was very creative and comfortable.
The owner was wonderful and very friendly. We felt if anything came up she would take care of it immediately. The river around the little island was idyllic. The home was very cosy and we will definitely come back soon. Our dog loved the island and met many friendly people and other dogs. The villagers were also very welcoming. A dream stay!
We were extremely pleased with the whole Unique Home Stays experience, we would love to return to Filly Island.
Wow! Thank you for creating such a special place to stay. So much has been thought of with this little house, and we loved all the quirky and original features. We loved every minute of our holiday and hope we can visit again soon.
