A Place by the Sea

Devon makes no secret of its two coastlines, boasting some of Britain’s best beaches sure to please everyone. There are of course a lucky group of people who can afford the luxury of owning a second beach side home, to spend time by the sea. However, the luxury of buying a seaside second home is not for everyone.

This should not stop you from visiting some of Devon’s best beaches, for a day trip of for the week. Arguably, renting offers more flexibility and opportunity to explore more places than just the one.
