Why stay in a hotel when you can take your pick from the most exclusive sought-after private homes in the UK?
As England looks forward to a bumper year of sporting, cultural and royal events in 2012 the UK gets set to brace itself for an influx of visitors from the world over.
Next year, the Torch Relay, Diamond Jubilee, and London 2010 festival will see thousands take to the streets in celebration with bright bunting flying high and cakes being eaten like it is going out of fashion. We’ll celebrate the legacy of Dickens and Shakespeare, and flood to the 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games in our droves; 2012 really is the time to be in the UK.
Here at Unique Home Stays, we’ve got a unique selection of homes that are little more than a hop, skip and a jump away from the main Olympic venues and events. And what’s more, you can rest assured that your accommodation will meet the top-notch standard that you desire for this once in a lifetime occasion.
From a stylish luxury house just a stone’s throw from the sailing action at Weymouth and Portland, to a luxurious London pad conveniently located for all of the exciting events in the host cities, our unique homes will allow you to be close to the action while still enjoying a luxurious and relaxing break.
As an alternative to run-of-the-mill hotels, experience intimate and luxurious hospitality as you are treated like special guests in these extraordinary country and coastal locations.
As well as first-class service and immaculate comfort, you are also assured personal attention from your welcoming local hosts. Forget fighting over a breakfast buffet at a busy city-centre hotel – we can arrange for caterers to prepare a sumptuous feast of the finest local fare for you and your group, before whisking you off to the games in chauffeur driven luxury. And if you feel a little exhausted after watching the tense sporting action, why not enjoy an afternoon spa session?
