Coastal Cottages Holidays 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 coastal cottages, converted barns, fishermen's lofts and luxury beach apartments available to book. Cottages close to the coast offer excellent value for money. They are near enough to coves, estuaries and beaches within a 10-15 minute drive of your cottage, but generally less expensive than holiday homes right on the shore. Enjoy miles of sandy beaches and great coastal walks with our selection of coastal 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 - all within easy reach of your holiday cottage. Our search criteria will help you find the perfect UK coastal cottage in just the right location.
