Post Thumbnail

The year is almost behind us and we’ve started to get excited for the adventures that the new one might bring. It’s not just us either—the group chats are absolutely buzzing with ideas and plans for getaways. We find that when looking for a group holiday, a UK break is just easier—you’re not left coordinating multiple flights and arguments about which airline to fly with. So, we’ve rounded up 10 dreamy coastal getaways that will keep the whole family/friend group happy.

Sleeps Eight

The Unicorn Song, Abersoch

Sleeping arrangements: four bedrooms and six beds

Price: from £296 per night

This property has a prime location in the sleepy seaside town of Abersoch. In summer months, the town plays host to several music festivals and a regatta, but in the cooler months, things are incredibly tranquil here. Think long beach walks and cosy pub lunches.

The house has lots of communal dining areas for those much-loved big group feasts.

Camber Sands, Rye

Sleeping arrangements: five bedrooms and eight beds

Cost: from £614 a night

This rustically chic home is just a two-minute walk from the famous sand dunes of Camber Sands. Accessed via a sandy private road, you’ll enjoy a sense of serenity at this property that’s often rare to find at this popular holiday location in East Sussex. The home itself is full of character with upcycled doors, windows and furniture throughout. It’s the sort of spot that’s stylish enough to warrant oohs and ahhs as you walk through the front door, but comfortable enough that you’ll feel utterly relaxed while staying here.

The Glass Lakehouse, Gloucestershire

Sleeping arrangements: six bedrooms and eight beds

Cost: from £3,001 a night

This is about as luxurious as a UK break gets. Located on the edge of Lake Bowmoor on the private Bowmoor Retreat, this six-bedroom property has state-of-the-art facilities both inside and out. The kitchen is high tech with features like fridges of different temperatures depending on what you’re keeping cool (think your crisp white wines versus your vegetables); while floor-to-ceiling windows across one side of the building ensure that the interior is always bathed in light. Outside, you’ll find that you have access to your own eight-person motor boat, kayaks and paddleboards, so you’ll be able to get onto the lake in any manner that you choose.

The estate itself has a Go Ape high ropes course, its own spa and wild swimming spots aplenty.

Sleeps 14

Slate, Abersoch

Sleeping arrangements: six bedrooms and nine beds

Cost: from £666 a night

This sprawling home will see you staying just a short walk away from the sheltered beach at Abersoch Harbour. It’s much quieter than neighbouring beaches meaning that in winter months, you and your friends might find that you have it all to yourself. In summer months, it’s a great spot for those looking to learn how to surf! Back at the house, there are comfortable interiors throughout but it’s the exterior spaces that steal the show. Enjoy a drink on the terrace and marvel at those famously dark skies come nightfall.
