The sun has got its hat on and it’s that time of year when the beach starts beckoning. With the UK fortunate to have some of the best coastline around, there certainly is plenty of choice when it comes to planning a UK beach holiday. Whether you are looking for a boutique B&B with a sea view, want to combine enjoying the coast with various other activities, or are looking to plan a beach holiday with the children, then we certainly have some great properties for you to choose from in some fabulous places. To help you plan your luxury seaside break, we have selected just a few of our favourite coastal picks.
