Come rain or shine, beaches are wonderful places to be. In the cold weather they are transformed into beautifully bleak places, whilst during the summer months sunlight softens and tames them ready for sandcastles and fun.
Take a break away to one of our cottages near a beach soon, and enjoy all that they have to offer. Beaches are incredibly versatile things: renting a cottage by one can be perfect for family or for that romantic get-away that you’ve always dreamed about. Being by a beach with your family is a cost-effective way to enjoy our British summers, especially as the recession bites. Your kids will love the freedom of being able to go to the beach when and how they want, playing in the clean sea air, building sandcastles, holding shell-finding competitions, and braving the often cold cold water.
Many of the cottages near beaches (especially in Cornwall and Devon) have surfing, wind-sailing, or snorkelling facilities so you can pick up and try out new experiences. All in all your kids will come back refreshed and ready for whatever school can throw at them. Taking a loved one away for a weekend by the beach could be just what you’ve always dreamed of doing made into reality. Go for long walks along the water, sunbathe, and have a barbeque under the stars, all combining to make a truly memorable break. Invite friends along for a good ‘ole fashioned barbeque on the beach, kids and all. Even during the winter months a beachside cottage can still be highly desirable as an alternative to getting away. The cold empties the beaches of people, making them beautiful and remote places, and with most beaches open to dogs in the winter, great family walks. After your long walk head back to your cottage for a roaring log fire, cake and tea. A cottage by the sea is for everyone, at any time of year, and will guarantee a holiday you are sure to remember and enjoy.
