Unique Home Stays
Sponsors of The Netherlands
TRAVEL EVERY DAY AS IF FOR THE FIRST TIME
Unique Home Stays is the platform on which the Tuk Tuk to Turkey Team market their own home. We can personally vouch for the company which provides an excellent service to both home owners and guests seeking a wonderful self-catering venue for a holiday or special occasion.
Unique Home Stays only market real homes that truly inspire them. Unusual homes in breathtaking locations; from one-off architect-designed gems to eclectic period houses with out-of-the-ordinary interiors; where unique narratives, exceptional interiors and breathtaking places combine.
Well-travelled experience seeker Sarah Stanley set up Unique Home Stays on her return to Cornwall in 2001. Her vision was to afford unique access to the most exclusive private homes in the UK, providing an opportunity for culture chasing guests to enjoy an authentic, immersive escape. What began as hosted homestays, with owners as much a part of the experience as the property, today our unique collection of iconic self-catered homes reinvent luxury travel. Exceptional living spaces imaginatively designed, our portfolio includes cliff-hanger beach huts, remote mountain retreats and period houses with awe-inspiring interiors.
Sarah’s first ‘office’ was the sitting room of her childhood farmhouse, complete with a menagerie of animals and children. From cottage industry beginnings, today
they’re a team who share a passion for unusual homes, with backgrounds in art and design, journalism, literature, real estate and photography. The carefully curated properties are designed to lift the spirits; homes with personality in which a true flavour of the owner is reflected. When they promise the unique, you can rest assured that you simply cannot find the properties that they market anywhere other than Unique Home Stays.

Nyama Mama Kenya
Sponsors of Belgium
NyamaMama is an exciting group of restaurants in Nairobi, Kenya which give traditional African food a modern makeover. Food is served until 4am — catering to a young, work-hard-play-harder crowd — and the menu is mainly sharing plates offering a twist on classic Swahili fare, such as ugali fries ( a sort of African polenta) with garlic sauce, sautéed sukuma wiki (a Kenyan version of kale) and barbecued pork belly marinated in Tusker — the local beer.
Nyama Mama is an unpretentious, fun, modern take on an African roadside diner. Indulge in some nostalgia with their signature cocktails served in iconic metal Vikombe.
The Tuk Tuk to Turkey team have strong Kenyan connections. Emily, Amy and Bharat were born there and Rachel lived there for 10 years so we are very proud to carry the Nyama Mama logo and wear the t-shirt!
Sponsors of Bosnia & Herzogovina
Baking is in Sushila’s blood; she has always loved the kitchen. She has been making delectable treats for forty-five years with passion and dedication. Everybody loved the concoctions Sushila made in her kitchen. And it wasn’t long before her scrumptious treats were gracing the tables of friends and family all around town. Of course, back then everything was handmade by scratch – there was no ready-mix, no boxes or frozen bags. Everything was lovingly made with the freshest of ingredients by hand. Over time, word got around and Sushila’s treats became quite famous.
To keep up with demand, Sushila expanded her production. Today, every cookie, biscuit and pickle is produced with the same loving attention to detail as when she first started. The sweetest milk, the creamiest butter and the richest spices are all hand selected to ensure every bite is filled with flavour. This has been Sushila’s personal mantra since she first started all those decades ago.
The Tuk Tuk to Turkey team have strong Kenyan connections. Emily, Amy and Bharat were born there and Rachel lived there for 10 years. We are lucky enough to be given a stash of Sushila’s goodies to take with us on our tuk tuk journey!

Le Creuset is recognised the world over for market-leading, premium quality ranges of enamelled cast iron cookware, multi-ply stainless steel, toughened non-stick, and stoneware, along with its outstanding range of wine accessories.
Established in 1925, Le Creuset has been making world-class cookware for almost 100 years, innovation remains at the forefront of Le Creuset’s success. Used by leading chefs and keen cooks around the globe, Le Creuset cookware offers outstanding performance time after time.
Le Creuset’s original and most well known range of products is its cast iron range. Cast iron has been used as “the” material for cooking pots since Roman times. Even with today’s wide choice of cooking materials, cast iron, still forged and crafted by hand, reigns supreme with its versatility, good looks and ability to retain and spread heat evenly.
In order to produce the desired shape for a Le Creuset piece, two sand moulds need to be made. One produces the interior shape of the item and the second, the exterior shape. The moulds are secured together leaving a small gap between them. The raw materials, including pig iron, are melted at an extremely high temperature in a large cauldron (called a “creuset” in French) and then poured into the moulds. Once the shape is cast, and the iron cooled, it is removed from the mould ready for the finishing process to begin. After use each mould is broken (the sand is then recycled) meaning that no two pieces of Le Creuset are ever “exactly” the same!
