Crisp, coastal walks by day and cosy toes beside the fire by night. There is no better feeling than coming home to a crackling fire and hunkering down as the waves crash against the shore outside.

We offer a variety of properties from small, cosy cottages to large waterside homes for the whole family, all with log fires. Here are some of our favourites.
