Where to Stay to Explore the UK’s Coastal Paths

29 January 2020

Windswept and wondrous, there’s something irresistibly dreamy about the UK coastline. Think cawing seagulls, rugged cliffs, and bracing sea air…all perfect ingredients to fire up that long-lost creative spirit – not to mention romance!

There’s simply no better setting for a winding walk surrounded by spectacular scenery and glorious, wide open space. It’s all but guaranteed to calm your spirit and soothe your soul.

In fact, according to the National Trust, a ramble along the shoreline is proven to help you get extra rest later on!

So, is there any better excuse to browse through some of our favourite Host Unusual properties, that just happen to be located right by a UK coastal path? We think not!
