Sea view holiday cottages
With over 11,000 miles of wonderfully varied coastline, visitors to Great Britain are spoilt for choice when it comes to booking a holiday cottage with sea views!
And apparently, nowhere in the UK is more than 70 miles from the coast - so the chances of finding a property to rent by the coast are pretty high.
So how do you go about finding your perfect holiday cottage with a sea view?
Holidaying by the sea
Holidaying by the sea has been a firm favourite of Brits since time immemorial. Seaside resorts were founded on the tourism generated by workers in the 20th century flocking to the beaches on holiday, long before package holidays abroad.
And now that the trend for overseas travel is on the wane, alongside the tendency for us all to take shorter but more frequent breaks, seaside towns right across the UK are starting to see something of a revival.
After all, is there anything better than waking up to the sound of seagulls, the smell of fresh sea air and then taking a walk along the beach – whatever the season?
Remote holiday cottages by the sea
So what do you look for in a holiday cottage by the sea?
Depending on your preferences, if you prefer to be more secluded, we can match you with holiday cottages far, far away from the crowds!
Some of our sea view cottages are really quite remote, whether they’re in the far north of Scotland. Or just tucked away off the beaten path in a cove in Cornwall.
Conversely, if you would rather have a sea view holiday cottage but retain the shops and restaurants nearby, you might like to select a property in the heart of the UK’s more well-known seaside resorts.
Holiday cottages with the coast nearby
Sea view holiday cottages inevitably come at a premium.
If budget is an important consideration, you might prefer to book a property near the sea but not necessarily one which overlooks it.
In which case, you might want to browse our selection of holiday cottages near the coast.
Generally speaking, these coastal holiday rentals are either right next to the coast itself or within a couple of miles, therefore making them easily accessible to the sea.
What types of holiday cottages are available with sea views?
One of the interesting things about renting a holiday cottage with sea views is that there is a wide range of property types to choose from.
You might be looking for a cosy fisherman’s cottage in the Yorkshire town of Whitby to sleep two. Or an architect designed, luxury pad for a large party which overlooks the sea, on the south coast of Cornwall.
And if you’re after something more quirky, then what about a lighthouse holiday cottage?!
Away from the crowds, they present a perfect choice, whatever the weather. Take your breakfast overlooking the waves or batten down the hatches and snuggle up to view an incoming storm!
With a lighthouse holiday cottage, you will struggle to find a holiday cottage closer to the water, without getting wet!
