Some of our large holiday homes bask by the beach. As if plucked from the pages of Enid Blyton, a winding path takes you down to crashing waves and secluded coves. Or maybe the beach is right there, the firepit’s ready and the steaks are set to sizzle.
So where will it be this year? The rugged and rocky fossil-rich Jurassic Coast? The smugglers’ coves, beach bums and surf schools of Cornwall? Or delightful Devon, where towering granite tors give way to soft golden sands?
