Surf retreats

The coastline bordering the UK and Ireland has surfing to rival any. Even though the water's often cool, with a luxury coastal retreat waiting, those big sets can be wholly enjoyed.

Pulling off a wetsuit to rinse off under a hot outdoor shower with a warm home awaiting your return is how all luxury surf trips should be. Roaring fire, surfboard storage, bacon roll keeping toasty in the bottom of the Aga... add a sun deck for morning wave checks and you've all the makings of a Unique Homestays surf escape. Whether it's just you and your board or a big group of surfer friends gathering for your annual trip, trace the UK and Ireland's best surf spots by staying at these luxury retreats scattered up and down the coast, a stone's throw from the sea. From the nation's favourite beach resorts to secret surf spots, we've sourced surf breaks to suit all wave-riders. At the end of a long day on the water, there's nothing quite like cracking open a beer and watching the sunset while the barbecue gently grills supper in the corner. Why fly to the tropics when the forecast for a luxury surf escape in the UK and Ireland looks this good?
