Beaches? The UK? Many outsiders don’t necessarily perceive the United Kingdom as the ideal beach holiday destination, but there truly are some awe-inspiring beaches in the UK, and although we’re not lauded for them, being an island nation, our coastlines are littered with some of the most beautiful in the world. From Woolacombe Beach in Devon, England to the north and south coasts of Cornwall, all the way west to Portstewart Strand, County Londonderry, Northern Ireland. There’s an incomparable beauty that our beaches have to offer. Being a self-catering accommodation listings site, we’ve put together 6 of our current favourite weekend beach house rentals across the UK.
