Coastal Cottages In The United Kingdom To Rent - Save up to 60%

Coastal cottages are ideal for a staycation at any time of year. Whether you are looking for a sunny seaside spot for your summer holiday or some where cosy to retreat to after a bracing winter’s walk along the beach, there is a coastal cottage for you. The coast has a lot to offer holidaymakers; walking the coastline, building sandcastles, swimming, surfing, donkey rides and windsurfing. These are just some of the options available at coastal spots across the UK.


Choosing your coastal cottage


Fresh sea air draws many people to the coast every year, but which part of the coast to go to, and which coastal cottage to stay in? The south coast is known for it’s sunnier climate and is a great place for a summer holiday. Down at the most southerly point in Cornwall you will even find exotic plants and white sand beaches that have a distinctly tropical look to them. The Scottish beaches are also known for their beauty, but the waters are unlikely to be as warm there. If you don’t brave the waves, the Scottish coast still offers excellent walking opportunities.

Whether you’re looking for a break with a loved one, or you’re going away with a larger group there will be a coastal cottage for you. There are also coastal cottages that are pet friendly and ones that come complete with extra features such as gardens, hot tubs, open fires or a swimming pool.

What our customers are saying about our Coastal Cottages In The United Kingdom To Rent.

Jenny from Ascot - verified booking

"Lovely views , and nice walks around Kingswear <br />Modern apartment with large balcony and lovely views across to Dartmouth , the main bedroom has a large comfortable bed with plenty of storage, I had to use a sleeping mask as far too much light coming through from early morning, due to the gaps around the curtains . The second bedroom is nicely furnished , however 2 small single beds and a grim view of a wall, damp at the back is apparent , the kitchen is well supplied and secure parking was a plus an easy walk down hill to the ferry Across to Dartmouth ,although a gentle climb back up the hill . We felt the apartment was value for money , but attention to cleaning needs to be done, we found the back of the sink in the on suite very grubby and quite off putting, along with the remains of a very used piece of a soap bar left out was definitely no star. On a plus the welcoming gifts was a delight , I would return to this apartment and recommend once they get the central heating fixed we did report this during our stay, and moving an electric heater from one room to another was uncomfortable . I found Blue River cottages very helpful and a delight to deal with ."

"What a lovely place for an autumnal escape! Great location and a fabulously cosy and homely cottage to come back to each day. We have had some great walks from Dunwich, Walberswick, Thorpeness and Snape... thanks for providing the walking books and OS maps! We had an excellent meal at Main's Restaurant over the road and G&T's café, also in Yoxford, is great - amazing cake! The area is spoilt for choice for cosy winter pubs; we loved Eels Foot Inn at Eastbridge, the Ship at Dunwich and the Lord Nelson in Southwold... but there are many, many more! (and we did the pub quiz at White Hart in Blythburgh - it was packed! All in all a great stay. We return home well rested thanks to the comfy beds and lots of fresh air, we'd love to come back! PS. Also great Wifi compared to lots of holiday stays!"

"A wonderful week exploring Suffolk from this ideally located, cosy cottage. The highlight for all the family was a day at Covehithe beach, a glorious stretch of sand with very few people. Great views of Southwold Pier in the distance. Southwold offered us a lovely walk; we crossed to Walberswick on the foot ferry - a sturdy rowing boat helmed by an elderly but skilled skipper. The lighthouse was also worth a visit. We also enjoyed a day at Snape Maltings & Britten's Red House/Exhibition was good too. We were lucky to be here during Snape Proms. Sutton Hoo and Woodbridge (walk along the river) was another great day and we enjoyed the circular walk from Dunwich. All in all a super holiday enjoying the Suffolk countryside in a comfortable and homely cottage to return to."

Michelle from Grantham - verified booking

"Excellent - we all really enjoyed it <br />Accommodation was terrific. The apartment was in a perfect location - really close to the waterfront, but nice and quiet. The kitchen was well-equipped & great to have a dishwasher! Good size TV & DVD player. It was also really good that all bed linen and towels were provided. The apartment was very clean & well decorated. Nice also to have a space to park the car. We really enjoyed our stay & would not hesitate to book with you again & recommend to others. Many thanks."

"Excellent holiday <br />The apartment was lovely, with fantastic views from a wonderful balcony. It is well appointed with everything we needed to make us comfortable. The Blueriver company was helpful when booking and answered any questions we had, about the area and the accommodation. We had a great time and i would fully recommend the apartment."
