It's not just cottages we have available, we've got a very unique portfolio that we're proud to say includes lighthouses and even forts. Each of our properties comes with its own individual character and setting but all have one thing in common; luxury. Whether you've got 2 people in your party of 14 people we can cater for you. You'll be presented with a free welcome hamper on arrival and you can enjoy the little extras each property provides including, in some cases, games rooms and even a spa. We also have several properties with a Jacuzzi/hot tub and even a sauna for you to enjoy. Imagine relaxing in a hot tub, glass in hand, lazily overlooking the beach and coastline.
You can enjoy the features of the stunning nearby beach or visit the many wonderful UK towns and villages that surround our properties. Explore the local countryside, taste the local wine, beer and food or navigate the many museums and other attractions available. When you're finished for the day, retire to your coastal holiday home.
Many of our properties have internet access via Wifi and log burners for that perfect warm and cosy feeling that goes hand in hand with a luxury holiday. If a gorgeous and traditional country cottage isn't your thing and you're looking for something more modern, we have a great range of more contemporary holiday homes too. Ideal for families, groups of friends or even work colleagues you won't be disappointed by our excellent and unique collection of coastal holiday homes across the UK. Now all you need to do is choose one!
Holiday cottages with beaches nearby
If you're planning a UK getaway during the warmer months, there's a good chance you're going to want to spend at least some of your time on the beach. Is there anything better that getting lost in your favourite book while working on that tan and enjoying the cool sea breeze?

We don't think so, which is why so many of our properties are just a short walk from the beach. After all, how else are you going to beat the crowds to that perfect sunbathing spot?
Sun, sea and sand
Summer holidays are all about enjoying the outdoors. All the best British breaks you had as a child no doubt involved a beach or two – there's just nothing quite like being by the sea. Perhaps you just want to be near a space that you can escape to during a sunny afternoon, or maybe the kids are dying to go for a swim and build some sandcastles.
Whatever the reason, having a beautiful beach on your doorstep is a luxury you'll truly appreciate and one that you'll surely miss when you return home.

More than 100 of our luxury holiday cottages have beaches nearby, across a wide variety of destinations.
