When the sun comes out and brightens up the day, there’s no better place to be than at the beach. Book a beach cottage and you’ll be a stone’s throw or just a short walk from the coast, so you’ll never have to walk too far if you want to indulge in some sunbathing, splash around in the sea or simply enjoy a leisurely sunset stroll along the warm sands. There’s a wide range of coastal destinations available, from popular tourist resorts with lots of attractions on offer, to sleep fishing villages where you can enjoy some peace and quiet.

We hope you find the perfect self-catering property near a beach for you.


Holiday Houses with Outdoor Pools

Whether holidaying at home in the UK or overseas, book a cottage with an outdoor pool if you really want to make the most of summer. This is a very good option to consider for families, as parents and children especially are sure to enjoy having convenient access to an outdoor pool whilst on holiday. If you’re planning on staying somewhere more rural, picking a cottage with its own pool is a great idea, as it saves you driving to the nearest beach or public pool whenever you fancy a swim.

Holiday houses with outdoor pools are ideal for making a splash on holiday.

Cottages with Gardens

Let’s face it, sunny weather isn’t exactly as common as we’d like it in the UK, so whenever it is sunny, you’ve got to make the most of it. Book a cottage with a garden so you have some outdoor space all of your own where you can bask in the favourable weather whenever it comes around. After a day of enjoyable and memorable activities, spend the evening relaxing in the open air and enjoying a hearty al fresco picnic as the sun sets. While most cottage gardens have outdoor furniture, many also have things like play equipment for children and BBQ facilities.


Cottages with the right amount of space

It goes without saying that if you’re planning a cottage holiday with your family, you’ll want to have plenty of room so that everyone in your family is comfortable. Likewise, if you’re planning a romantic getaway, somewhere a bit more cosy and intimate might be ideal. However many people are staying with you, the best cottages are ones that offer plenty of space.

Pick the Best Summer cottage for you

There’s a whole lot of choice when it comes to cottages and at times, the huge number of options may indeed seem overwhelming. But, so long as you have in mind what sort of cottage you’d like to stay in, whittling down the many choices to find the ideal one for you shouldn’t be too tasking. These are just a few examples of the sorts of places you could consider for your summer cottage getaway. No matter what type of cottage you end up picking, you’re bound to have a wonderful and enjoyable self-catering holiday.
