Summer by the Sea

Summer by the Sea

20th January 2021

If lockdown is lifted, we predict 2021 is going to be the summer of the staycation. Our properties are already booking up fast, but there are still some very tasty places to be had. We've chosen our pick of holiday homes by the sea - gorgeous family beach houses, stunning sea-view apartments and romantic coastal cottages - all (at the time of writing) with a week or two free in July and August.

Please remember to stay safe and always check the latest government advice before travelling.
