Find the perfect balance between relaxation and beach activities, with or without the kids, when you stay at one of these idyllic, luxury coastal hotels UK. There is nothing more magical than waking to breathtaking ocean views on a seaside hotel break. In winter, take an invigorating walk along the seafront and feel the cooling spray from the waves crashing against the shore. After bracing the crisp sea air, there are few things as comforting as returning to a warm drink in front of a roaring log fire. Whilst in summer, you can relax on the beach and soak up the sun’s rays, but if you prefer to be a little more active we can find hotels where there are plenty of water sports to enjoy. Sit out in the evening on a terrace and watch the meditative scenery as the sun goes down over the ocean. Watergate Bay is the ideal place for sports enthusiasts as the hotel has its own Extreme Academy, which includes activities such as surfing, hand planning and waveski. It also has a coastal themed infinity pool that overlooks the coast. Stay in rooms that let the sunlight pour in and watch the ebb and flow of the tide as various seabirds circle overhead. There is something about holidays by the sea that give you a wonderful feeling of free-spiritedness, as you have time for reflection and total escapism, adding to your sense of calm. One of the greatest things about these beach hotels is the unforgettable dining experiences that let you sample the freshest catch of the day. Tucking into fish and seafood that still possess all the flavour of the sea is incredible. Best of all, seaside breaks are also hugely romantic, so if you want to share some memories with someone special, head for our magnificent coast. Without a doubt, we have the coolest collection of coastal hotels in the UK, many of which have their own tranquil spas, where you can indulge in a little pampering after a day on the beach. Each year, more and more of us are rediscovering our stunning coastlines. Walk barefoot along the beach and feel the sand between your toes as the waves pummel the shore. At each of the hotels you will find bucket loads of character, style and phenomenal views, which we are sure you will enjoy.
