Beach Cottages

Beach Cottages

With nearly 8,000 miles of coastline, the UK has more than its fair share of excellent beaches. Rugged pebble beaches to heavenly strips of sand, from tip to toe there are some truly breathtaking spots for a holiday. You'll also find plenty of amazing holiday cottages by the beach, from cosy little hideaways off the beaten track to charming seaside apartments near to towns like Whitby, Weymouth or St. Ives.

Hit the beach on a good day and the UK's coastline rivals any in the world, with something for everyone. With extensive coastal trails like the South Coast Path and many remote and heavenly strips of sand and holiday resorts, whether you're looking to soak up some rays and relax or take the high-road and look for adventure beaches cottages in the UK give you and your family the freedom, luxury, and convenience of your very own little space by the sea.

Ideas for a beach cottage holiday in the UK

With beaches in every corner of Britain, the only drawback with a beach cottage holiday is having to choose the destination. Cornwall and the south coast is especially popular with holidaymakers of all ages, including surfing enthusiasts, and with stunning strips of sand like Weymouth, it's easy to see why. With surf shops, seafront restaurants, gift shops, innumerable tourist attracts and the best of the British weather, head to the south coast for an amazing cottage holiday.

Britain distinguishes itself on the world stage for its history and the long heritage of seaside towns like Whitby, Western-super-Mare, and Blackpool. Springing up in the 19th century (thanks to the advent of the railways) these towns still retain their historic character, with Victorian-era pavillions, magnificent piers and promenades and, of course, donkey rides, and are ideal locales for a memorable family trip.

If there's one place where you get a sense of Britain at its best it's along the coast, and what could be more charmingly British than a cottage by the beach? There are lots to choose from, ideal for romantic getaways, family holidays or surf trips with your buddies.
