Coastal properties with log fires

From sleek white log burners to traditional open fires, you will be spoilt for choice for a cosy retreat this winter.

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.
