Beach and Coastal Holiday Cottages Within Easy Reach of a Beach
The UK has one of the most picturesque and varied coastlines in the whole of Europe. Pick any stretch of coast and within a mile or two of the beach you will be spoiled for choice with the range of holiday cottages, converted barns, fishermen's lofts and luxury beach apartments available to book. Coastal cottages offer excellent value for money. They are near enough to coves, estuaries and beaches within a 10-15 minute drive of your cottage, and generally less expensive than holiday homes right on the shore. Enjoy miles of sandy beaches and great coastal walks with our selection of coastal holiday cottages which can be found right across the UK. There is nothing quite like a refreshing walk along an empty beach on a crisp day in October or simply take the family away to any of our coastal holiday cottages this summer and relax by the seaside and let the children enjoy swimming, surfing or rock-pooling whilst you unwind and top up your tan. Our search criteria will help you find the perfect coastal cottage in just the right location.

Many holiday cottages by the coast will have a store of beach equipment for guests to use such as buckets, spades, wind breaks, crab lines and even beach games or wet suits for children. Visit the website of a coastal property to see just what beach equipment an appealing cottage on the coast provides for guests. It could save a lot of packing or unnecessary purchases.
Beach and Coastal Cottages appeal to walkers. Self-catering means you are not tied to hotel restaurant times or having to dine out every night, and also offer facilities for drying and washing muddy clothes and boots overnight, ready for the following morning. Many coastal cottages welcome dogs - but do check local tourist information to see which local beaches will be 'dog friendly' during the dates of your holiday.
