Coastal breaks in spring

Coastal holidays in spring

Let the lighter, warmer days and fresh breezes carry you to the seaside this spring. England’s coastline is a treasure trove of soaring headlands and secretive pirate’s coves, sleepy fishing villages and buzzing seaside resorts. Witness magnificent castles looming up from Northumberland’s craggy cliffs or join the puffin patrol at Yorkshire’s RSPB Bempton for a glimpse of one of England’s most endearing birds. For a touch of class, quaff champagne and sample spring oysters in trendy Whistable in Kent or book a stay in a retro beach hut in Lancashire, boasting expanses of sandy beach and all the mod coms.
