Looking for a secluded beach cottage?
In a country as densely populated as the UK, finding a secluded cottage by the sea can be like finding a needle in a haystack. Luckily, there are a couple of hidden gems that are worthy of a mention, such as the stunning Beach Bay Cottage in the Isle of Lewis, Scotland. This quirky property is build from natural stone and turf, reflecting the traditional neolithic design of the area. Inside the property is pure 21st century luxury, with a sauna, en-suite Jacuzzi and WiFi internet.
If the Isle of Lewis is a bit too far to travel, we also recommend the 17th century Smuggler’s Retreat in Devon. Boasting uninterrupted sea views over the Atlantic, this is a rare example of an isolated holiday cottage in the South West of England. There is also a shared play area for children, a luxurious hot tub, and the nearest beach is just a short stroll away.
Our final recommendation is Lighthouse Cottage in Norfolk, a truly unique (yes, you guessed it!) lighthouse cottage dating back to 1791. Just a short drive from Norwich, the property sleeps up to five people and is baby, toddler and pet friendly.
