We are very lucky that many of our sleeps12 properties are within an hour of a lovely beach or coastal town. Why not venture out of the property for a while and explore the beautiful coastline that surrounds the South West.
Here are a few of our favourites:
The South coast has a wide variety of different beaches to explore. From the Esplanades of Sidmouth and Exmouth to the fashionable Salcombe there is something for everyone.
Hire a boat to places such as Dartmouth and Torquay and enjoy the atmosphere or settle down to a bit of sandcastle building at Lyme Regis.
The wide beaches and great waves make this the ultimate surfing destination. Take your own boards or hire some for an hour. There are lots of hire places as well as surf schools to choose from.
Most of the more popular beaches have lifeguard services in the Summer months but do remember to be safe in the water.
If you fancy a more sedate beach experience why not visit Weston-Super-Mare and the Grand Pier or smaller villages along the coast like Watchet where time almost appears to have stopped!
Many beaches allow dogs all year around but some are restricted so please do check local information before you leave.
