By the Sea

With the sea breeze swishing through your hair, the feeling of sand between your toes and the smell of fresh fish and chips, nothing beats the British seaside. Relish that nostalgic feeling with a stay in an inn by the sea, from modern boutique style inns to traditional seaside pubs, there are coastal pubs to suit every budget, taste and occasion.

Bumble about on creaky Victorian piers crowned with roller coasters, meet a local artist in their seaside studio or lace up your hiking boots for a cliff-top stroll in search of puffins and gannets. After all this coastal exploration there is nothing better than an evening meal in a pub. Many coastal pubs serve delicious local, fresh and seasonal food including seafood caught that morning complimented by local real ales, refreshing cider or a glass of wine.

After a long day exploring the coast and a delicious evening meal you can retreat to your luxurious bedroom fitted with king size beds, en-suite bathrooms and all the modern facilities you would expect for a comfortable stay, followed by a delicious breakfast in the morning.
