Coastal Cottages In The United Kingdom To Rent

Coastal cottages are ideal for a staycation at any time of year. Whether you are looking for a sunny seaside spot for your summer holiday or some where cosy to retreat to after a bracing winter’s walk along the beach, there is a coastal cottage for you. The coast has a lot to offer holidaymakers; walking the coastline, building sandcastles, swimming, surfing, donkey rides and windsurfing. These are just some of the options available at coastal spots across the UK.


Choosing your coastal cottage


Fresh sea air draws many people to the coast every year, but which part of the coast to go to, and which coastal cottage to stay in? The south coast is known for it’s sunnier climate and is a great place for a summer holiday. Down at the most southerly point in Cornwall you will even find exotic plants and white sand beaches that have a distinctly tropical look to them. The Scottish beaches are also known for their beauty, but the waters are unlikely to be as warm there. If you don’t brave the waves, the Scottish coast still offers excellent walking opportunities.

Whether you’re looking for a break with a loved one, or you’re going away with a larger group there will be a coastal cottage for you. There are also coastal cottages that are pet friendly and ones that come complete with extra features such as gardens, hot tubs, open fires or a swimming pool.
