Cottages with a beach nearby

We all appreciate having a beach nearby, especially during the summer.

self catering cottages near a good beach People who live in Britain are aware of the unpredictable nature of British weather. One could rationally expect July and August to provide the sunniest and warmest days but not necessarily, we are often surprised with an early summer at the end of May or early June. Families with children are inevitably limited to school holidays which for the English begin in the third week of July and for Scots a couple of weeks earlier.

It is very nice to have a beach close by and indeed everyone flocks to beaches as soon a hot sunny day appears. People arrive with their picnic rugs, portable chairs, windbreaks, UV tents and all the other paraphernalia that is felt necessary for a good British beach holiday. Then the struggle for car parking begins as people compete for parking spaces closest to the beach. It's along way to carry all that stuff otherwise.

The advantage of renting a holiday cottage near a beach is that there is less fuss and bother. When the sun shines, you can walk to the beach and return home for a drink and snack if there is a flurry of rain. A cottage near a beach is convenient. Go on holiday armed with a collapsible cart that you can pack with all the things you need and it's easy to wheel it all along and back. No parking problems, no need to arrive at the crack of dawn and you can stay later when the beach is quiet and the day trippers have gone home.

Cottages near a beach for dog owners

Rent a cottage near a small secluded beach that is dog friendly

The major beaches at British seaside resorts are restricted to dogs. Some allow dogs out of season from November to the end of April. However, there are hundreds of smaller beaches up and down the country where dogs are permitted all year round. Talk to cottage owners who will be able to advise regarding their local beaches.

Even if the sun is not shining, it is good to walk on a beach, jog or just play in sand dunes.
