Coastal retreats

Toe-dipping in the shallows, coastal walks under flaring sunsets, hibernating indoors while storms crash outside; our unique coastal homes offer sanctuary in all weathers.

We do like to be beside the seaside, don't we? Sweeping sands and long coastal rambles, sitting in the shallows watching as the children jump over foaming waves… Days by seaside are as iconic as the soft-whip ice cream with which they go hand-in-hand. With freckled, salt-kissed faces and tousled hair, retreat to the serenity of a luxury coastal holiday cottage, where the only thing left on the agenda is to relax with a full glass of delicious wine from the fridge, as children sleep and the sun melts into the ocean. 

Homes by the sea can be enjoyed in all weathers, as autumn and winter bring a different kind of romance. Blazing summer days invite skinny dips and afternoons of sunbathing under a vintage parasol, whilst cooler months bring pumping surf and temperatures just right for heart-racing dog walks across soaring sand dunes. Wrap up and storm-watch from the tops of rugged cliffs, or sip giant hot chocolates under blankets as those wild Atlantic winds whip sea foam against the windows, fire crackling alongside.
