Charming Coastal Towns for Your Next UK Holiday

The weather is starting to get a little brighter in the UK, and there are even some sunny days in between the rain. It won't be too long before summer is here, but you don't have to wait that long to get out and enjoy the country. Foreign holidays might have become much more popular and affordable over the years, but there's nothing wrong with staying at home sometimes. A traditional seaside trip might not give you the guaranteed sunshine of Malaga, but it can be full of all the charms of a British holiday. There are some great seaside locations all over the UK, from the Hebrides to the south of England.

Looe, Cornwall

The south of England gets more sunshine than other places in the UK, and Cornwall is particularly popular with holidaymakers. If you're looking for an excellent destination for a Cornish trip, Looe is a beautiful option that sits on both sides of the River Looe. Once you've booked into a Looe hotel, you can wander the narrow, charming streets, and enjoy local pubs and restaurants. Wherever you choose to stay, you don't want to miss a visit to the harbour, where you can watch the local fishing boats, and even take a boat trip of your own. Just a mile from the coast, you can find the lovely Looe Island.

Portree, Skye

If you're willing to take a trip out to an island, perhaps a trip to Scotland's Inner Hebrides could be in the cards for you. The stunning island of Skye is home to Portree, a picturesque town, which is the main one on the island. As well as having the island's only secondary school, the town is brimming with culture. You can enjoy theatre, concerts, films and history at the Aros Centre. But if you would prefer to get outside, pony trekking and cruising are two options available to enjoy. Accommodation options in Portree range from holiday cottages to hotels.

Porthmadog, Gwynedd

Wales has plenty to offer when it comes to coastal towns too. While some people might prefer sunny Pembrokeshire, Porthmadog in Gwynedd is also an incredibly popular place to visit. Known as the "Gateway to Snowdonia National Park", this pretty town is perfect for anyone who wants to live the outdoor life on their holiday. It has some beautiful beaches, and there are plenty of outdoor activities to enjoy nearby. But for a slower-paced holiday, Porthmadog also offers craft shops, restaurants, pubs, and all the usual charms of a coastal town.

Tynemouth, Tyne and Wear

Up in England's north-east, Tynemouth is a rugged but beautiful coastal town. Its beaches are some of the best-loved of the region, but you wouldn't know it on a more blustery day when you might get to enjoy the peace on your own. One of the best things Tynemouth has going for it is that it's a great destination for foodies. Like many coastal towns, it's a brilliant place to enjoy fresh fish and seafood.

A trip to a quaint British seaside town could be what you need for your next trip away. It can be as activity-packed or as quiet as you want.

Stay Gorgeous
