self catering accommodation on the coast

As a Mum of two boys myself, I know how much the boys love going to the beach even now they are that bit older. Whenever we are on holiday, we do like to stay near the coast, regardless of the weather - we invest in shortie wetsuits for the boys so they don't get too cold - and off we go for the day. Not only that, whilst we don't have a dog ourselves, I know a lot of people who holiday in the UK purely on the basis that they can take the much loved family pet, there is nothing nicer than taking a long walk along the gorgeous British coastline, so why not find somewhere to stay nearby?
Below is a selection of our self catering holiday cottages, gites or villas that are located on or near the coast and beaches for lots of family fun. Please ensure that you have agreed exactly how far away from the coast and beach that the holiday accommodation is with the owner prior to completing the booking process just to make certain you are happy.
