Discover 1,000s of smashing holiday cottages right on your doorstep. Dotted around some of the most jaw-droppingly stunning parts of the country, these gorgeous places to stay make for great British breaks whatever the weather.
The Victorians popularised British coastal resorts, but more recently we’ve ignored the coast on our doorstep, opting for the Med and further afield. From the glitz of Brighton to the rugged coastline of Cornwall, pack your bucket and spade and don’t forget to pick up a stick of rock when you get there!
If you’d rather escape the madding crowd, go for a rural retreat. We’ve got farmhouses and country cottages in areas of outstanding beauty all over Britain. Fill your days exploring the Brecon Beacons, rambling across the Lake District or scaling the peaks of the Scottish Highlands.

"24 Surf View is a 2 bedroom apartment benefiting with a heated swimming pool , (Surf View residents only) Having been recently fully refurbished throughout the apartment is clean and modern."
We try and describe the apartment how it is, and threw the photos, i really feel your comments are misleading and uncalled for, the photos we have to advertise the apartment are exactly how it is, our comment book is full of praises from every guest we have had, i simply cannot understand what you were expecting.
Communication was tried but to no avail, e-mails were not responded to and we are still receiving spam e-mails from yourselves? this makes me wonder the credibility of this review?
We have never had any complaints about noise, we cater for mainly families, children will sometimes bang doors and play loudly.
I do agree with the remark about the shower, we are installing a power shower to overcome this problem.
We rely on trip advisor to attract guests, submitting a false review is very damaging to our business, i hope you understand this.
