Whether your dream holiday is spent relaxing on golden sands with incredible sea views, or you fancy braving the waves and trying your hand at the local water sports, we have a coastal staycation for every traveller. Plus, when you’re not on the beach, there’s plenty of beachside cafes, bars and restaurants to keep you busy.
Kids, dogs and grandparents alike will all be impressed with our selection of coastal properties too. From holiday homes on the southern coast to luxury lodges up north, what better way to explore some of Britain’s best landscapes than with a UK coastal staycation?
The Best Coastal Locations
Best for: All ages
Our property pick: Captain’s House
Cornwall isn’t just famous for its golden sandy beaches. It’s also home to a number of nature reserves and long walks that all the family can enjoy. Plus, the best thing about walking along these beachside tracks is that you’re never too far away from a stall selling fish and chips. One of the top spots for staycations in the area is St Ives.
Best for: Those looking for a good time
Our property pick: Beach End
Why go abroad when you can get everything and more in the UK? Devon, and its white sand, will definitely have you coming back for more too. Saunton Sands is one of the favourite locations for a trip, and it’s also surrounded by award-winning bars and restaurants meaning the atmosphere is fantastic – whatever the time of day. If you really want a coastal staycation like no other though, hire a beach hut and enjoy a BBQ on the sand…
Best for: A relaxed holiday vibe
Our property pick: Bay Point House
Grab all your loved ones, book out a luxury holiday home, fill your cool boxes and head down to the dog-friendly beaches in Wales for a day out like no other. You might not think it but Wales is home to some of the prettiest beaches in the UK, and the Welsh spirit and community vibe is enough to make you come back for more.
Best for: Exploring the local area and Isle of Wight
Our property pick: Brook Farmhouse
Dorset isn’t just pretty to look at but it’s also packed with rich heritage and a number of landmarks. Here, the seaside towns have a story to tell and there’s usually a picture opportunity to grab too. That’s if you can pull yourself away from the incredible accommodation that this area has to offer.
Best for: Something truly unique
Our property pick: Whinock
The water might be cold but the beaches in Scotland are truly incredible. Wrap up warm and take the dogs out for a morning walk. Head off on an adventure to discover rock pools and formations. And in the evening, get toasty around your very own fire on the sands. It might be unlike anything else out there, but a coastal holiday in Scotland will be one to remember.
The Best Coastal Holiday Types
Coastal staycations with a sea view
Can’t get enough of that sea view down by the beach? Well, with our selection of coastal properties you don’t need to. Boasting sea views from the garden, bedroom and bathroom (yes, that’s right), you can even take in these incredible views whilst sitting back in your private hot tub.
Last minute coastal staycations
Want to get away from the stresses of daily life? A coastal staycation is ideal. Spend your mornings wandering along the sand, exploring the local towns and indulging in the finest beachside cuisine like ice cream and fish and chips. Whether you need a place for you and your family or a large group of friends, we have something to suit too.
Glamping coastal staycations
These days, glamping isn’t just glam-camping. In fact, there doesn’t even need to be a tent involved. From luxury yurts in North Yorkshire to vintage campervans in East Sussex, we’ve taken glamping to a whole new level. And now, you can even enjoy special extras like a sea view, private terrace or hot tub.
Dog-friendly coastal staycations
Don’t leave anyone out on this year’s staycation. Pack their bags, take their favourite food along and bring your four-legged friends to enjoy all of the fun. Many of the UK’s beaches are also dog-friendly – so your little ones (both furry and not) can play around and splash in the sea while you take some time out.
Cheap coastal staycations
On a budget? Perhaps you’d rather spend your money on food and drink rather than accommodation? Don’t worry, we hear you which is why we have a large range of holiday homes to suit all tastes and budgets. Our team is also able to recommend a few fun things to do and places to see if you’re watching the pennies.
