Best seaside short breaks

Sands Resort Hotel & Spa, Cornwall.Sands Resort Hotel & Spa, Cornwall.

Few holidays offer the simple charms and pure joy of a traditional seaside break in the UK – after all, when it comes to it, kids (especially younger ones) need little more than a beach and an ice cream in hand to be happy. And what makes the kids happy makes you happy.

And while a bit of sunshine never goes amiss, seaside staycations are great all year round – walks, beach games and rockpooling are as enjoyable in the winter months as they are in summer, but in the colder months you're not likely to be fighting for your own stretch of sand. Even Christmas by the beach can be fun!

We've gathered together our favourite seaside family holidays around the UK and for all budgets, from family-friendly hotels and holiday villages to self-catering cottages, and in locations ranging from chic, ever-popular Cornwall to kiss-me-quick resorts such as Blackpool and Skegness.
