Hotels by the sea

British weather aside, when the summer is in full swing it’s the perfect time to head to the seaside.  With bucket and spade in hand, whether you’re looking for a family holiday or a romantic mini break, British beach hotels have a reputation for historic charm and the most spectacular scenery across England, Scotland and Wales.

The variety of hotels is something we often talk about – you hear seaside and it’s so often simply connected with family holidays.  Of course, there are few places as charming or as wholesome as our beaches to take children to enjoy the summer (or indeed a bracing walk in the winter), but there’s also a wealth of opportunity for a luxurious or romantic break.

Amongst the top destinations are luxurious spa hotels across the country, offering wonderful food, pristine surroundings and a sophisticated experience where you can relax and unwind.  With views to counter all others, hotels in and around the seaside town of Salcombe have been wowing visitors for decades, surrounded by the South West Coast Path, glorious beaches, rural vistas and with a superb Salcombe Dairy ice cream never far away.

In Scotland, the rugged beauty of the landscape is really something that belongs in storybooks.  It’s a favourite location amongst hikers and those seeking adventure, peppered with shingle beaches and marshland that’s a delight for the senses.  Alternatively, the Channel Islands have a wealth of spectacular escapism to offer, providing a sense of stepping back in time combined with natural beauty – for those who love to watch the wildlife go by, the likes of Jersey and Guernsey are a treat.

This is a selection of all of our hotels by the sea.
