Beach Holidays In The UK…

We might not enjoy the sunshine of the Mediterranean or the crystal clear waters of the Caribbean, but it’s easy to forget that the UK is home to some truly beautiful coastlines.

Plymouth for one is surrounded by golden sandy beaches. Beaches that are recognised for being some of the very best in the UK. Perfect for rock-pooling, swimming and surfing alike.

To add additional adventure to your beach day, you can get there by ferry! Just hop on and in a short ride from the city is Barn Pool at Mount Edgcumbe. It’s a highly popular place for families and tourists to visit and has the most amazing views across the Estuary and Plymouth.

Then there are the glorious sandy beaches of Bovisands and Wembury. Both just a 15 – 20 minute drive from Strathmore House Apartments.   Wembury is a beautiful beach, owned by the National Trust, which is just as beautiful on a misty winter’s day as it is in the summer heat and is great for rock pooling. Bovisands is a sheltered bay of yellow sand with cliffs either side, this popular beach has a large expanse of flat sand when the tide is out, making it perfect for games.

As areas of outstanding natural beauty, these destinations are very popular with locals and families.

Once a haven for smugglers, you also have the quaint twin Cornish villages  of Kingsand and  Cawsand. They are totally worth the half hour boat trip from the Barbican. You’ll find secluded beaches, delightful walks and a warm welcome in the pubs and cafes.

If beach holidays in the UK is your thing; then Plymouth and Strathmore House Apartments really do hold something very special!
