The salt in the air, the gentle sound of lapping waves, the gulls above your head. These are all things we dream of experiencing when we own our very own home by the sea. A seaside home is something a lot of people desire. The opportunity to get back to nature and enjoy a peaceful life. Your own little bolthole away from the busy world.
For many people that dream is becoming a reality. Holiday homes are no longer reserved for the super rich. More and more UK citizens are buying holiday lodges in British seaside towns and they’re bringing back the Great British Staycation.
In this article we share why we think a holiday home by the sea is an amazing purchase and we’ll let you know where you can find a luxury holiday lodge next to a peaceful ocean.
Why a holiday home by the sea is an amazing purchase
There’s something uniquely special about a holiday home by the sea. Lots of people have second homes in the countryside or in a holiday town but to have a home by the sea has a special vibe to it.
You know the owner wants a relaxing, peaceful escape from the world and that’s why, for the right person, a holiday home by the sea is an amazing purchase. We’ve listed a few reasons below why we think a holiday home by the sea is an amazing purchase:
If you want a quiet, peaceful and atmospheric holiday home choosing one by the sea is a good idea. Free from distractions you can gaze out across the ocean and contemplate life.
You can take a stroll along the sand or dunes by your home, read by the sea or go for a paddle. Your very own holiday home by the sea lets you do all this distraction free from tourists and other holiday makers.
You can visit your holiday home whenever you want
One of the best things about owning a UK holiday home is that it’s just a short drive away. You don’t need to find your passport, buy some insurance and book a flight just to enjoy a peaceful weekend away; you can simply hop in the car and be on holiday in a few short hours.
If you’ve had a tough week at work or want an impromptu romantic getaway you can simply hop in the car and go to your happy place. This is perfect for spontaneous people who just want to be able to relax at a moment’s notice.
Great for adventure
The seaside might be a peaceful getaway but it’s also great for adventuring too. Coastal walks, cove exploring and watersports are all things that are literally on your doorstep when you live by the sea. If you want a seaside break with a bit of action then purchasing a holiday home right on the coast is a great way to get in amongst the action whenever you want too.
Great for entertaining
Whilst it is true that seaside holidays homes are great for a relaxing, peaceful retreat they can also be amazing party destinations for you and your friends. There’s nothing quite like a seaside barbeque or a picnic on the beach. Entertaining friends in your holiday home is another option and you can all watch the sun go down over the ocean after a lovely meal.
Seaside holiday homes are great for anything you want to use them for. A relaxing getaway, an adventure base or as a party house. Being next to the sea lets you do all these things and have a great time while you’re at it.
