There is nothing better than being by the coast on a summer's day. Certainly many of us have happy memories spent as children holidaying by the sea and enjoying traditional activities like swimming, rock pooling, crabbing and eating a delicious creamy ice cream on a hot summers day.
It is not surprising that we want to continue this tradition and pass these same happy memories to our children or even relive those happy time ourselves. Times have moved on and there is much more on offer in a coastal getaway. You can still enjoy a traditional getaway with amusements and a bucket and spade eating fish and chips by the sea, but nowadays many coastal towns and villages feature fascinating attractions and amenities, with trendy eateries, boutique shops, as well as popular festivals and events that attract visitors from all over the country.
Today the choice of coastal holiday homes is astounding and ranges from small chalets to impressive modern villas with panoramic sea views. Your cottage might be perched on a clifftop or nestled in a busy harbour, or sit amongst the countryside with far-reaching views to the sea, or perhaps stay in a lighthouse, the choice is yours.
Take time out of your busy schedule to escape to the coast, where you can breathe in the fresh sea air and enjoy the stunning sea views from your holiday cottage window. The sea has a calming effect and easily hypnotizes you as you gaze out at the sparkly blue horizon. Watching the waves rise and crash on the rocks during a storm gives you a sense of the immense power of the ocean.
With many holiday cottages close to coastal paths it won't be long till you are exploring all that the many miles of coastline has to offer from stunning vistas, miles of heritage coastline, beautiful sandy beaches and hidden coves waiting to be discovered. Find yourself a secluded beach and enjoy the tranquillity and beauty surrounding you. Watch the fisherman return in the evenings with their daily haul. Take a boat trip, sea safari, go fishing or try your hand at an exhilarating water sport there is so much to do and see.
The coast can be enjoyed all year round and is not just restricted to the summer months. Hunker down in the winter in front of a cosy fire as the wind blows outside, enjoy brisk autumnal walks along the seafront. Go horse-riding along the open expanses of beaches. In the spring see the villages come to life as they look forward to welcoming their summer guests.
Furthermore, our delightful coastal properties are equipped with everything needed to ensure a pleasant and memorable stay. With many properties allowing pets, so four-legged family members don't have to miss out on the fun.
A coastal cottage is the perfect choice for a getaway, escape the hustle and bustle and relax amongst the calm coastal surroundings with the gentle lapping sounds of the water reaching the shore. Make time for that iconic British holiday.
