Welcome to Simply Sea Views

Having grown up in coastal Cornwall, I have come to believe there is something really quite special about looking out to sea. That's why I started Simply Sea Views, to showcase the very best sea view holiday cottages in the UK and help people find the perfect place to gaze out at the ocean. We only allow holiday accommodation with clear sea views to be listed, which means, if you're tired of being disappointed by poor or partial views, then you have come to the right place! I have worked hard to ensure that the site is an easy to use, no fuss facility. If you'd like to hear more about my seaside adventures, visit my blog.

Beach boltholes

Wake up to fresh sea air, sand pipers hopping along the golden beach, surfers gliding through the glassy morning swell and the soothing sound of waves gently lapping at the shore at your sea view holiday cottage.

Harbour hideaways

Spend your evening sitting back in your holiday accommodation with a glass of wine watching as crabbers, trawlers and small fishing boats, laden with the days rewards, scuttle across the red sky lit water and back into the safety of the harbour.

Open sea sanctuaries

Watch the horizon shimmering with the afternoon sun, outlining the great expanse of aqua-marine ocean, only broken by a pod of dolphins jumping joyfully through the surf. Stunning sea views await at our hand-picked holiday cottages.

Your Holiday Cottage by the Sea is Calling...

Escaping to a cottage by the sea is good for you! Not only are fresh fish, cliff top trundles and breathing in clean sea air great for your body but now scientific study is revealing a clear correlation between living by the coast and reduced stress levels, as well as generally heightened feelings of well-being. There's no surprise there really. If you live live in Britain, you're never more than 72 miles from the coast. So pack your bags and prepare for the salty seaside! We're proud to showcase a carefully selected range of self catering accommodation with sea views and holiday cottages by the sea. These sea view cottages are located in all corners of the British Isles including Devon, Cornwall and Scotland. Whether you're a couple looking for a romantic getaway in a cosy cottage on the coast or a family seeking a base for seaside activity, we have the perfect cottage, apartment, house or even caravan for you!

Big Selection of Cottages by the Sea

We believe we have the UK's largest collection of holiday properties with sea views. These include cottages by the sea in coastal holiday hotspots all over the country. Cornwall remains a firm favourite with visitors to our website, closely followed by our superb collection of holiday cottages by the sea in Devon. Other popular sections include Suffolk, Norfolk and all parts of Scotland.

First Class Holiday Cottages with Sea Views

The appetite for quality cottages with sea views grows year-on-year. Most holidaymakers in the UK head to the coast for their annual holiday as well as short breaks. These visitors come to spend time by the ocean so sea view cottages are inevitably very popular.

Specialists in Seaside Cottages

Ever since we established this website with a handful of seaside cottages in Cornwall we've been amazed at the huge range of quality holiday properties on the coast. All the self catering cottages listed on this website have high standards of decor and facilities, ensuring holidaymakers a comfortable stay by the sea.
