The best Airbnb beach houses in the UK


Summer vacation time is upon us and what better way to celebrate the season than to gather your favorite people and check into an Airbnb beach house in the UK?

With the airport drama and flight cancellations causing havoc for many travelers fleeing to Europe this summer, we thought we’d help you avoid the hassle of traveling overseas and bring you our selection of properties in seaside on Airbnb.

Additionally, Airbnb recently made finding unique properties easier by launching Airbnb Categories, over 50 different rental types to make your search for specific rentals easier. Some of these categories include accommodation in national parks, campsites, and Airbnbs in the Arctic.

With that in mind, we’ve dug into the beachfront category to show you some of the most notable seaside properties you can rent this year. Our selection of amazing Airbnb beach houses in the UK are ideal for group getaways – some even allow dogs.

Offering the perfect alternative to a coastal hotel retreat, these heavenly homes include vacation cottages with direct beach access and those with incredible views, so you’ll be right on the water’s edge the moment you you wake up late at night when you’re roasting marshmallows around the fire pit.

Whether you’re looking to escape to East Sussex, Cornwall or County Down, you’ve come to the right place – check out the best Airbnb beach houses in the UK.

We love this A-shaped Airbnb beach house in the UK seaside neighborhood of Camber, where the golden sands await. There are four bedrooms sleeping up to eight people and it offers barefoot living at its best, with the beach as its front garden. Dogs are welcome for an additional fee and can enjoy the main beach from October to May, or the dog-friendly section at other times of the year.

Why we love it: The wooden floors, the flowing sand and the wood-burning stove for roasting marshmallows on the deck – it’s a dream of barefoot luxury.

Another fantastic Airbnb beach house in Camber, this five-person cottage is right by the sea and is a cozy option for a small group (and the dog!). Inside there is a lovely cottage atmosphere with space to have breakfast together and rest by the fireplace on cooler evenings. The double bedroom and the second bedroom with three single beds make it ideal for families.

Why we love it: The vast open space outside contrasting with the cozy interior makes this a place you’ll be happy to come back to after days spent outdoors.

Why we love it: All the nature around – lake, pine trees and wildlife (Strangford Lough is great for seal watching).
