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.
