Coastal Cottages located near the sea or a beach.

Come rain or shine, the coastlines of the UK 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 the coast soon, and enjoy all that they have to offer. Coastlines and beaches are incredibly versatile places: renting a cottage by the sea can be perfect for family or for that romantic get-away that you've always dreamed about. Being by the coast 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 by the coast, playing in the clean sea air, wonderful coast walks, building sandcastles, holding shell-finding competitions, and braving the often cold, cold water. Many of the cottages near the coast (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 children will come back refreshed and ready for whatever school can throw at them. Taking a loved one away for a weekend by the sea could be just what you've always dreamed of doing made into reality. Go for long cliff walks, 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 coastal 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 are open to dogs in the winter for great family walks. After your long walk why not head back to your dog friendly 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.
