Britain's Best Seaside Hotels
Mawgan Porth, Cornwall, England
Billing itself rather grandly as a luxury eco hotel, just for grownups, on the edge of the Ocean, The Scarlet does not disappoint. Overlooking the bay at Mawgan this idyllic hotel offers uninterrupted sea views and a 5-star terrace. And if you want something a little livelier, well, Newquay is just a few miles down the coast.
St Brelade, Jersey, Channel Islands
The Atlantic Hotel is a family run hotel in St Brelade, and offers all you would expect from a Riviera property, along with the warmth and passion you often receive from family owned establishments. Its grounds overlook rolling green fields and beautiful golden sands. Plus, there’s added the bonus of the lovely weather often found in Jersey.
Located in the quaint and beautiful village of Blakeney North Norfolk, this lovely hotel sits right on the quay side and offers extraordinary views over the salt marshes and out to sea. Close to the RSPB nature reserves this hotel is perfect for those of you who love a little bird watching.
Rye, East Sussex, England
Is a “relaxing hideaway from the stresses and strains of modern life where grown-ups come to relax.” With beautiful rooms and award winning food, its situated just across the road from Camber Sands, and that’s a whole lot of beach on your doorstep.
Morecambe, Lancashire, England
This world-renowned Art Deco building is a wonderful bright white focal point on the coast at Morecambe. Once a favourite among celebrities such as Coco Chanel, Sir Laurence Olivier and Noel Coward, it is now better known for its relaxing spa and wonderful panoramic sea views.
Tenby, Pembrokeshire, Wales
Rooms with a view, and personality. This is not your average generic hotel, its crisp, relaxing rooms offer views over the long sandy beach that runs from Penally to Tenby, and its very own courtyard and gardens that also provide many of the vegies for their restaurant.
Argyll & Bute, Scotland
Situated on the shores of both Loch Creran (a personal favourite of mine, and utterly breath-taking) and Loch Linnhe this castle of a hotel is sure not to disappoint on any front. Just a short trip north from Oban in the heart of the highlands with large open grounds and its own 9 hole golf course, this may be just what the adventurer in you is looking for.
