Large Coastal Cottages within a mile of the beach or the sea

Looking for a large coastal cottage?...A holiday cottage so near the sea that you can smell the salt? Check out our large seaside properties that are within 1 mile of the coast. You might be looking for a boutique villa in a seaside resort, a luxury beach house in the dunes or a cluster of cottages on a coastal farm - there is a great selection to choose from! Rent a cottage by a family friendly beach, a luxury townhouse overlooking a busy harbour or a country house on the cliffs – which ever you choose, you are sure to create memories to last a lifetime! Seaside self catering holidays are a great choice when holidaying with a mixed age group. Sand dunes and rock pools provide traditional bucket and spade entertainment for the younger members while coasteering, surfing and all manner of water sports will satisfy the adrenaline junkies. For those wishing to relax, sea air is as good as Champagne and who can resist evening cliff walks and spectacular sunsets? If you are looking for a self catering property by the water with a mooring or offering boats for private use, or a house boat or holiday cottage with direct access to a beach, lake or river, see our ‘Water’s Edge’ properties.
