Seashore / Seafront Holiday Cottages

Just show me Seashore Cottages

If you could describe your perfect holiday cottage what would it be? A rural retreat perhaps, far from the madding crowd. Or a designer pad bursting with gadgets and gizmos, a stone's throw from the high street.

Or does the thought of lazy sashays along a beach, morning dips in the sea before breakfast, playing ball with 'Scamp' and building sandcastles with the kids hold much more appeal? If this is the case, a seashore cottage would be the ultimate holiday home for you.

We feature a wonderful collection of seashore cottages, from the remotest shores of Scotland and Ireland to the breathtaking coastlines of Northumbria, Pembrokeshire and Cornwall. Some are located very much on their own for those seeking a truly tranquil escape, while others nestle in and around picturesque fishing villages and established seaside resorts. They come in all shapes and sizes too, with things to do in the locality for every generation.

Enjoy walks along coastal paths, daytrips to offshore islands, look out for dolphins - even whales, or learn something new like surfing or water skiing. And at the end of a day's adventure, curl up in your seashore cottage and listen to the sounds of waves gently lapping the shore.
