The chance to get away to picturesque surroundings on holiday is an opportunity many relish. There are some who have their own holiday home to enjoy and then there are others who get to reside in such settings permanently. Seaside locations are immensely popular for property buyers and the UK can boast a number of attractive areas by the coast.
The prospect of living on Devon’s North Coast in the South West of the country is understandably appealing and the village of Lynmouth offers much. At the top of a gorge above Lynmouth is the small town of Lynton and the area has many historical and beautiful sites, not to mention some breathtaking views.
The location of Aldeburgh on the Suffolk Heritage Coast includes terrific arts, cuisine, sailing and family activity. This seaside area is a hotspot for fishing and it has a shingle beach, as well as hosting the well-known Aldeburgh Festival in June each year.
Whitby, North Yorkshire
Situated north of Bridlington and Scarborough, Whitby has a reputation as one of the UK’s most favoured places to holiday in. For those thinking of purchasing a home in the area the points of interest include Captain Cook Memorial Museum and Whitby Pavilion, Lighthouse and Beach.
If it is a place in South Wales you are on the lookout for then Tenby could well be making an appearance at the top of your list. This harbour town has cobbled streets, restaurants, cafes, shops and of course a number of beautiful beaches to savour.
St Ives, Cornwall
The beaches in St Ives are particularly stunning and they help to make it a firm favourite with adults and children alike. You can go on a trip through the arts and crafts of the area or you can sample the local Cornwall cuisine and take in the sea air around you.
