Seaside self catering cottages

A self-catering seaside cottage or holiday apartment is a popular choice for many different groups of people, especially for summer breaks. We might not have guaranteed sunshine in Britain, but when the sun shines, a large proportion of the population heads for the beach to make the most of every warming ray.

Find seaside cottages

beach CornwallLook at an British beach and there are families with their picnic blankets, wind breaks and beach toys, couples on sun beds and young people in groups. The beaches of Cornwall and Devon often have surfers and surf schools. Parties and barbecues are held on certain English south coast beaches; go to Brighton or Southend-on-Sea in Essex for lively seaside fun and entertainment.


Pet-friendly seaside cottages

pet friendly seaside cottagesThere are beaches and seaside towns with a different character all around the British coast. We are proud of our Blue Flag beaches that are clean and safe for families. Dogs are not permitted on these beaches or restricted to outside the main holiday season. There are plenty of beaches that are pet-friendly however.  Also, pet-friendly holiday cottages welcome guests with accompanying dogs.

Cornish seaside cottages


Cornwall's coastline with abandoned tin minesThe south western county of England, Cornwall, is a fabulous seaside cottage destination. The Cornish coast is indented by sandy bays and estuaries. It has a strong sailing tradition; thousands of yachts are moored in harbours and rivers all around the coast. There is a large number of beaches, mostly sandy and some quite amazing. There are large seaside resorts such as Bude in north west Cornwall and small hidden coves with no facilities whatsoever that holidaymakers acn have to themselves. The small stretches of beach and coastal paths are another good option for dog owners; no one will be upset by the presence of your dog on the beach, allowing for a relaxed seaide break. Walk the cliff paths around Land's End for spectacular sea views or go northwards towards St. Ives to explore the ruins of abandoned tin mines.

Beaches of Devon and Somerset

beach at Burnham on Sea SomersetCornwall can be a touch too far to travel for some and people settle for the beaches of Devon and Somerset because it's a lot closer. There are still some beaches suitable for surfing in north Devon, the broad sands of Croyde is one example.   The sandy stretch of beach and promenade on the right are at Burnham-on-Sea in norh Somerset.

The beaches of south Devon and Dorset tend to be sheltered and recommended for family seaside breaks. Sidmouth offers a lengthy stunning beach of golden sands, rockpools and some shingle. Walk the length of the beach to the brown cliffs at the far end. Hang gliders can sometimes be spotted leaping into mid air off of the cliffs. Beautiful gardens and lawns stand above Jacob's Ladder and there is a very pleasant cafe where one can enjoy afternoon tea in a secluded courtyard.

Dorset and the South Coast

Travelling eastwards, the beaches of Dorset are equally attractive. Lyme Regis is a family resort with a gently shelving sandy beach, a harbour and plenty of rock pools.
