It seemed like everyone and their dog wanted a holiday by the sea this summer. Restrictions on foreign travel led to a feeding frenzy for a limited supply of seaside properties. And we don’t see this level of demand easing up for 2021.
Fortunately, we’re constantly adding new sea view holiday homes to our sizeable collection and have a number of exciting new properties available for the 2021 season in beautiful coastal destinations across the UK.
