Isn’t it funny how exciting it can be to wake up to a sea view on holiday? But imagine being able to step 100m out of your holiday cottage and straight on to the sand...allow us to introduce our On The Beach collection! We have a range of stunning 4 and 5 star holiday cottages that are all within 100m of the nearest beach. Not only can you enjoy an amazing sea view from within your self-catering accommodation, but you can then step out and enjoy it within minutes.
As we’re based in Devon it’s no surprise that we know a thing or two about UK beach holidays, and we have holiday cottages a pebble’s throw from some beautiful stretches of sand.
Devon and Cornwall are famous for their balance of family-friendly sandy beaches and dramatic surf – and they were awarded 19 Blue Flag awards between them in 2011.
This prestigious award is an independently assessed symbol of excellence, where UK beaches are judged annually against a strict set of criteria relating to water quality, safety and environmental management.
That said, Devon has 14 Blue Flag beaches, Cornwall has 5 and Dorset boasts 9 Blue Flag beaches – in short, UK beach holidays are pretty special!
Torbay (Torquay, Paignton and Brixham) is said to have the best sand for making sandcastles on the South Coast – so budding young architects can hone their craft in style on one of the many beaches!
Whether you want to teach the children to swim, take a bracing walk through the sand dunes, or just sit back and relax – you can take your pick everyday of your stay. And there’s no need for extra sand in your sandwiches anymore – because you can pop back to your apartment or holiday home for lunch with barely an interruption to the day’s fun!
Ideal for Surfers
The North coast of Devon and Cornwall are renowned as some of the best places to surf in the world! Many of the Blue Chip On The Beach properties are specially equipped for surfers - with secure outside storage for surf boards, wetsuits and beach equipment and outside or downstairs showers for getting clean after a day in the waves.
There’s even more good news, as guests of our UK beach holidays receive a 15% discount at Rip Curl ESF Surf School in Newquay. Just click here to download your voucher.
