Coastal cottages

Coastal cottages (369)

Master the art of true relaxation in one of these idyllic coastal cottages. Wake up in your beach house to the soothing sounds of the waves. Or spend romantic evenings dining al fresco on the balcony of your seaside cottage.



Coastal cottages provide hassle-free breaks where the beach is your backyard. Keep one eye on the kids and the other on your book while they’re building sandcastles. Nip out to explore the coastline, discover life in the rock pools or take a quick dip in the sea. When you’re renting a beach house you’re never too far away to pop back for a snack or to freshen up.



Choose from coastal cottages in Pembrokeshire or one of the cottages by the sea in family friendly Devon or Cornwall. Mediterranean seaside cottages and beach houses in Greece, Italy and Turkey are also perfect for relaxing and getting away from it all.
