Coastal cottage holidays in England


As an island nation, England has a long wonderful coastline that features not only beaches but also cliffs, harbours, ports and numerous seaside towns that remain popular for summer holidays.

The nature of the cliffs and beaches varies around the coast. Dover is famous for white chalky cliffs, granite cliffs are the order of the day in Cornwall in south west England. Beaches can be sandy, pebbles or mixed. The big seaside resorts see a huge influx of people on hot days and many seaside locations are good for family beach holidays in England.

The Isle of Wight just off the south coast near Southampton is a holiday isle with numerous good beaches that are perfect for sand castles. There is a host of activities for holidaymakers and places to visit which all help make for an interesting holiday.
