Looking for a cottage with a coastal view and easy access to the seashore? These websites have just the place
Most big holiday cottage companies have a selection of coastal properties, but there are also websites devoted entirely to seaside stays. Beachlets only lists properties on or near the beachfront – more than 70% are within 300 metres of the sands. The site has thousands of cottages in south-east and south-west England, Wales and Scotland. For example, a one-bedroom cottage in Downderry, Cornwall, has direct access to the beach down cliff steps, and sea views towards Looe Island. It sleeps two, and has availability from August (£576 a week, or from £330 in September).
