...the most extraordinary stay...

We have just returned from the most extraordinary stay at The Admiral, Uplyme. Unique Holiday Stays were extremely flexible on the lead up to the holiday and when we arrived we found everything we could have wished for, for our week there. Despite the local surroundings we spent most of the time in the house / its grounds and the kids had the most amazing (phone free!) stay. The grounds and features/facilities of the house are perfectly suited to a large group getaway. We couldn't recommend Emilie and the team at Unique highly enough.

just fabulous

We stayed at The Admiral over the summer which was just fabulous - Everything about the house was just amazing and had the wow factor. The house was spotless, beautifully presented down to every last detail. Everything is provided on site so you never need to leave the house EVER. Hot tub, sauna, swimming pool and more. I wish this was my house but hopefully I can come back next year. Thank you to all the team for an amazing experience

A truly luxury holiday

This is our third holiday with Unique Holiday Stays. We stayed at The Admiral and wow it does not disappoint. A truly luxury holiday with everything you need - the kids loved the pool and the gardens. The adults spent most of the time chilling in the hot tub. A magical holiday thank you so much for everything. A great company that thinks of everything.

...the most amazing property...

I can't praise Unique Holiday Stays enough. They really went out of their way in every respect to make our stay at The Admiral last week PERFECT - from taking all the stress out of planning the stay with all the changing government guidelines, to being constantly on hand for questions and always coming back to enquiries within a manner of minutes. They were even brilliant and quick to the rescue when we accidentally locked ourselves out one day.....
The Admiral is the most amazing property and we felt incredibly lucky to enjoy all of its facilities with our two families. The kids adored the wild swimming pool, the trampolines, treehouse, table tennis and plunge pools (as well as playing hide and seek nonstop). We ALL loved gathering around the fire pit every night, the pizza oven and the relaxing, spiritual atmosphere of this really special house and garden.
Our week in Uplyme was the perfect holiday, made all the better with the really outstanding service we received. Thank you so much.
