Self-catering coastal holiday cottages in the UK

Everything seems better when you're at the coast; let your worries fade away when you find yourself beside the sea. With over 11,000 miles of mainland coastline, covering popular stopping points such as Cornwall, Devon and Wales, you'll be sure to find the destination to meet your needs, whether the hour calls for family time or planning a surf trip.

Get involved in watersports

If you're more of an adrenaline junkie and feel the need for speed, Zap Cats (which are essentially supercars on water) are a must for you. Slow it down (just a little) with waterskiing and jetskiing and feel that salty sea air on your face as you break the surf and head out to sea or take a route inland through an estuary. Take the plunge with coasteering and cliff diving; a fantastic amalgamation of exploring rocky coastlines and taking a dip in the cool blue waters below. If staying in the water is more your thing, try your hand at scuba diving. The UK coastline has a plethora of scuba spots, many with surprisingly good visibility, where playful seals can be spotted, along with dolphins swimming around 1000s of sunken shipwrecks, which are ready for you to explore.

Taking it breezy

As one of the windiest countries in Europe, the UK coastline is the perfect place to practise blustery endeavours. Whether it';s windsurfing or kitesurfing on the waves, flying a kite with the little ones or just cloud racing with your four-legged pal, the refreshing ocean breeze will keep you coming back again and again.

Calm, balmy days

For those of you who prefer life at a slower pace, coastal areas in the UK have you covered too. There's so much coastline available to you: with myriad inlets, coves, bays and islands, don't be surprised to find yourself with a stretch of beach all to yourself. Leaving only your footprints and pawprints behind, walk off into the sunset for a truly memorable seaside stay.

Top coastal destinations

For some of the best ports of call in all the UK, head to the most popular shoreline spots the UK has to offer. Stop off in North Cornwall and take in the party town of Newquay, with its world-class surf and lively bar scene. Or hop over to picturesque Padstow and dine out like a celebrity at Rick Stein's Seafood Restaurant, before taking in the charm of the rest of the town.

Take a ride to West Cornwall and take in the glorious water and sparkling beaches of St Ives, or the quaint village of Mousehole which exudes charm and character and was once called the loveliest village in England.

Further north in Wales, why not try the spectacularly scenic coastline of Pembrokeshire, where breathtaking views marry with famed hospitality to create getaways that will live long in the memory. Jump on a boat in Tenby and glimpse wild seals and puffins relaxing in the hidden bays; or visit the maritime-history-filled Milford Haven where beautifully uncrowded beaches abound, along with evening entertainment for you late-nighters.

Other popular places for a coastal holiday include Norfolk. Here you'll find the idyllic seaside resort of Cromer where young and old come to sample the trademark crab dishes; or the peaceful, rustic charm of Blakeney, located in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, where wild seals roam the waters.

Scotland cannot be overlooked and with scenery like that of Northern Scotland, which houses regions as stunning as Aberdeenshire and the Highlands, it's easy to see why. Indeed Southern Scotland too boasts serenity in spades with territories such as Ayrshire and Dumfries and Galloway showcasing vast woodlands and beachside retreats in equal measure.

We offer a large selection of coastal cottages perfect for those wanting to enjoy a seaside break. Choose between cosy cottages brimming with character, luxury cottages full of modern features and contemporary apartments with awe-inspiring views.

There's no better place to be than by the sea, and all of our coastal cottages are either near the coast or right on the beach, perfect for getting a dose of vitamin sea. Take a look at our full range of coastal holidays all over the UK to find the perfect seaside retreat for you.
