By the Seaside


"We all love to be by the seaside"

As soon as hot weather if forecast, families all over Britain and Ireland, gather their children, picnics, rugs, chairs and buckets and spades and head off to the nearest beach.

Ideally we would prefer to have booked a week or two (in good weather) at a seaside holiday cottage and be able to walk to the beach, avoiding any car parking problems. This is possible with a little careful planning and a spirit of adventure.

It may prove most difficult to find that idyllic cottage by the seaside on the south coast of England at popular seaside resorts but will be achievable if you cast your eyes a little further afield. How about the Isle of Wight, the Scilly Isles, Channel Islands or Northumberland coast?

Go as far as Scotland and you can almost have the beach to yourself.

Many people do not think beyond the familiar but the rewards are immense if you consider beyond that and discover different kinds of seaside holidays.
