Now for something totally different...

Look no further than Group Stays when you are planning a UK break because we have some amazingly different properties that you will fall head over heels in love with.

From Scottish Country Houses like Balinakill House to a Somerset Treehouse Group Stays has a portfolio of properties to suit all your needs. Tynrhyd Retreat is licensed for weddings and Pettistree House has a ballroom for the discerning party goer.  Here are our recommendations for something a little different.

Kippys Cottage 

Sleeping 7 in three bedrooms Kippys Cottage has rooms with a view! Overlooking the harbour at Brixham in Devon Kippys Cottage is situated in an elevated position which makes the most of the beautiful views.  A perfect property for a true bucket and spade holiday you are only minutes from Breakwater Beach.

A short walk takes you to Shoalstone Pool situated on Brixham seafront. It is a natural rock pool which in Victorian times was used for bathing. It now has a wall around it but is still a salt water pool so 'Hooray' no chlorine! Boasting a huge sunbathing deck the pool is free to use but relies on donations. Open during the summer season it is best to check before hand that they are open. 

Sycamore Cottage

If you haven’t been to Bude yet what are you waiting for? Bude in Cornwall is a surfing haven. Wide stretches of beach makes a day by the sea pretty perfect. If you stay at Sycamore Cottage you also have the benefit of some pretty special on site facilities.

Swim in the indoor swimming pool, the kids can even have swimming lessons!

Have a relaxing hour to yourself and book a luxurious spa treatment. Or have the therapist come to the cottage for a pamper party. Perfect if you are having a hen party or girly weekend away.

Sycamore Cottage  is stylishly designed and even has a wood burning stove for those chillier evenings. The private garden with a six person hot tub completes this pretty cottage. 

The Brochs @ Balbinny

Spend some time in stunning Scotland and stay in the beautifully presented Brochs @ Balbinny.

Sustainable luxury accommodation in the heart of the Angus countryside you will really feel a part of the scenery. The two large en suite bedrooms sleeps 4 people and a cot is available for a baby. Whilst it may seem like you are at the end of the world you are only a short drive from 3 international airports making this a really unique but accessible holiday. 

Glamping Thorpe

Why not try out the ever popular Glamping at Glamping Thorpe in Oxfordshire? A wonderful range of accommodation makes this something really different from your usual arrangement of bell tents.

With a gypsy wagon, a shepherds hut, a spotty caravan and a kitted out horse lorry this is really something special.

Vintage tractor rides and a communal party barn which is perfect for dancing the night away makes this the perfect choice for a totally different holiday experience.  

Four totally different holiday experiences but each will provide a lifetime of memories for everyone who stays. With spaces still available for summer breaks get in touch today to find out more.
