With thousands of miles of coastline on offer in the UK, there are any number of great seaside hotels to enjoy on a short coastal break this summer and autumn. All you need to do is put your destination into our holiday finder and UK Breakaways will do your research for you! All of our partnering hotels provide dinner and breakfast in their prices, and they all have private facilities, as well as a tea and coffee tray in your room.
Trips to the coast
The UK has some 7,723 miles of coastline. In amongst the more popular destinations for beach-lovers there are some overlooked and less well-known jewels, and it pays to hunt around a little to find something that will suit what you’re looking for. For instance, you’ll almost certainly know about the old favourites like the beach towns of Cornwall and the English Riviera, and of course you’ll know about Eastbourne and the sunspots and resorts of the southeast. But perhaps you’re after something a little bit different, or want to try somewhere new or off the beaten path. If that’s the case, you might be surprised to know that there are great opportunities for short coastal breaks to be enjoyed on the beaches that surround Edinburgh and Aberdeen in Scotland. Alternatively, why not give north Wales a go? Llandudno is arguably the most famous holiday resort, but tucked away here and there are quieter beaches and sleepy villages in which to while away your break. For a different kind of holiday, Prestatyn Sands – one of five Pontins parks still going in the UK – offers low-price catering, accommodation and entertainment.

In between stretch hundreds of miles of coastline, boasting great places to explore the famous sights every few miles: Brighton, Bognor, Portsmouth and the Isle of Wight, Bournemouth, Poole and more. Whatever takes your fancy, UK Breakaways has got everything you need to find the best-value hotel deals.

The flexibility of driving yourself with the hassle taken out of planning your itinerary and accommodation: self-drive city breaks are the ultimate way to experience a new city. The lights of Blackpool, the theatre of London’s West End, Liverpool’s thriving cultural scene, the beauty of Aberdeen or Edinburgh – it’s all at your fingertips.
With the economic downturn continuing, many of us are choosing to take a short break within the UK rather than planning the traditional long trip overseas. If you’re uncertain where to holiday this year, perhaps its time to consider some of the many great locations that our country has to offer. From the English Riviera on the south-west coast to the many famous seaside resorts around England and Wales, to the cultural and historic attractions of the major cities – we’re confident that we can find you something to your taste and budget.
No matter where you choose to go, you’ll be reassured to know that your hotel accommodation will always come with breakfast and dinner included in the price, as well as private facilities and tea and coffee in your room – all from just £30 per night. Depending on your trip, you’ll find additional attractions in the form of bar deals and evening entertainment of various forms.
We have collected the best deals together so you don’t have to spend time trawling the web. If you need any extra assistance in planning your break then call us on 0844 682 8000 and we’ll be happy to help you put together the short break that’s right for you.
This intriguing little district of Torquay on the English Riviera has more than enough to keep you busy on a short break, and our holiday finder makes it easier than ever to find great hotel deals in Babbacombe.
The district of Babbacombe is close to the thriving seaside resort town of Torquay, and if you feel like a day trip then all of Torquay’s many attractions are within easy reach. However, Babbacombe has its own unique appeal and some well-known and celebrated sights and activities of its own – perhaps most notably the Model Village, a four-acre area with over 400 models and 300m of model railway track.
The Babbacombe Theatre has built a name for itself for its variety shows and has featured many hugely popular acts over the years. Since its ‘summer season’ is the longest in the country, lasting nine months, and there are regular shows at Christmastime, you are almost guaranteed to find something to enjoy. Access from the cliff-tops to the beaches and harbour is by path or road, and there is also the famous Babbacombe Cliff Railway – one of the only original funicular railways still in working order.
UK Breakaways – enjoying more for less
UK Breakaways has partnered with local hotels to find you the best-value accommodation at short notice. You’ll be enjoying fine food, a great location and sea views, as well as regular evening entertainment and easy access to the local attractions from as little as £89.90 for 4 days.
If you’re looking for even better bargains then check our ‘just in’ section – but don’t wait around because they don’t last for long. Alternatively, you can give us a call on 0844 682 8000 and we will help you plan your ideal mini-break.
