Coastal holidays

Nothing is more refreshing than a coastal holiday by the sea and with our selection of coastal cottages, you’re sure to find the perfect retreat by a golden beach or beautiful coast path. Whether you’re looking for a cosy cottage overlooking a pretty harbour town or a luxury holiday apartment with glorious ocean views, we have something for everyone.

Have a look at our fantastic collection of coastal holiday cottages across the UK and find your perfect haven by the sea. Discover miles of heritage coastline across the country or relax and unwind on an empty beach. Whatever makes your holiday by the sea, we’ve got your perfect coastal holiday covered.

The majority of our coastal cottages are located in the beautiful South West. Cornwall is the perfect place for a traditional seaside holiday and has made its name as a contemporary hotspot for fine dining and water sports. Move further East and you’ll discover everything that Devon has to offer, from rugged coastline to wide expanses of farmland. Look over stunning countryside through one window and scenic ocean views from another, all in one cottage. Why not spend your days exploring the Jurassic Coast in Dorset or visit a number of coastal family attractions in Somerset. We also have a large range of coastal cottages throughout the UK, including Scotland, Wales and the North of England, so wherever you fancy a holiday by the sea, we’ve got it covered.

Whether you’re looking for a fun family holiday or a romantic break for two, our coastal cottages make the perfect home from home and are fully equipped with everything you’ll need. There’s no need for the family pooch to miss out either as many of our cottages are dog friendly. They’ll enjoy a walk on the coast path or a run on the beach too.
