Welcome to Unique Homestays

Holidays matter.
They are our lifeline to sanity, a chance to step away from everyday life and reconnect with the people we love; a time to relax, to be the real us, or indeed to be whoever we want to be. Unique Homestays have curated a collection of the UKs most exclusive luxury cottages, for a unique self-catering experience that ensures the magic lasts long after the holiday ends.
