Beach treasure hunt


With the sunshine giving us a little taste of the summer, it's the ideal time to head for the beach with the kids.

Do you remember rock pooling and filling your pockets with shells on seaside holidays as a child? Hunting for treasures on the beach is a timeless simple pleasure which can be educational too.

We've come up with a great way to give your exploration a little purpose and introduce an element of healthy competition. Download our free beach treasure hunt for the children and they can tot up points as they find each item on the list.

Keep an eye out for crabs and shells and see if you can tick off some of the more unusual seaside finds such as jellyfish and heart-shaped pebbles.

If you're looking to plan a family holiday by the seaside, take a look at our coastal cottages. They provide the perfect base to return to after long days spent on the beach and exploring the coast.
