Holiday Cottages by the Beach

Nothing says 'holiday' more than the sand between your toes and turquoise waters lapping onto golden beaches. Find yourself a private cove and have yourself a beachside holiday in a home-from-home. All dreamy seaside breaks should start and end in a luxury cottage, combining the right amount of adventure with little luxuries too.Read more

Throw open the window and breathe in that fresh salty air - you're definitely on holiday when you can smell the sea. Have breakfast by the beach, spend all day flitting between the water and the soft sand, or just gaze at the beach from the comfort of your holiday cottage. Nothing beats being by the sea.

If you're on holiday with children, staying by a beach means non-stop excitement and entertainment; sandcastle-building, wave-jumping, rockpool-searching, never-ending fun. If it's a more grown up affair, soak up the sun and refresh in the sea. Still, you're never too old to make an awesome sand-fortress.

Holiday Cottages Near a Beach 

If you've always dreamed of a seaside holiday, then you're in the right place. Our portfolio includes secluded beach cottages, cosy beach hut holidays, seaside retreats perched high on the cliffs, and much, much more. Our cottages situated near the beach are great for summer holidays soaking in the rays, but of course, beaches aren't just for summer. Listening to the ocean's raw in winter tucked into a luxury cottage safe from the waves is a truly atmospheric experience.
