The best waterside homes on sale including one with private beach as Brits face spending summer in UK – The Sun

THESE are five of the UK's most magnificent waterfront homes boasting perks such as a private beach and breathtaking views – as Brits face spending summer in the UK.

The multi-million dollar properties, which are now up for sale, give a glimpse into what it's like to live in some of the most luxurious settings in the country.

The stunning homes dotted around the UK offer tempting glimpses of  destinations that Brits may be forced to visit following new quarantine rules on travellers to Britain.

Last night, Boris Johnson announced all people arriving in the UK must be quarantined for two weeks to help stop a second coronavirus wave.

Airline and tourism bosses fear the two-week quarantine move could kill off any lingering hopes of British holidaymakers heading abroad this summer.

Holidaymakers and travellers arriving into the country – including Brits – at ports and airports will be forced to self-isolate for a fortnight, or risk a £1,000 fine or deportation.


It means Brits may have to take four weeks off to take a two-week holiday abroad, leaving most people facing summer in the UK during the Covid-19 pandemic.

A study by The National Caravan Council (NCC) showed 64% of people are likely to take trips in the UK next year, compared to just 38 per cent before the coronavirus outbreak.

One property for sale in a picture-perfect UK resort, the Sharpitor, is an iconic three-bedroom property situated on a clifftop in Salcombe, Devon with spellbinding views.

Built in 1902, all rooms in the semi-detached Edwardian house have direct access to adjoining terraces to enjoy the spectacular scenery it has to offer, with access to coastal gardens and a small private beach.

Another jawdropping home, a ruined 16th-century rooftop property built on the rocky outcrop just off the beach of North Sands at Salcombe in Devon, is also now up for grabs.

The £3.5 million four-bedroom property has an upside-down layout with a hand-built kitchen and conservatory, boasting stunning sea views and gardens terraced into the cliff.

And a contemporary three-storey beach house in Pwllheli, Gwynedd, Wales taking advantage of amazing cliff-side views is now up for £3 million.

The property boasts two levels of terraces with glass windows and private steps that lead down to the beach and sea, including private shower facilities on the ground level.

It is also just a short stroll away from the centre of the nearby picturesque village.

One £1.5 million semi-detached house in Exeter on sale boasts a homely interior, large balcony, and first floor sitting with a vaulted ceiling and Juliet balcony for residents to take in the magnificent sea views.


The three-bedroom property is located on the banks of the River Exe in Topsham, which  a seaport and centre for shipbuilding – and is now one of the region's most sought out places to live.

And in Scotland, the Corriegorm, situated in a forest  in Aberfeldy, Perthshire is a beautiful country house with breathtaking views of the Loch Tay.

The £850,000 modest building has been transformed into an impressive modern home, with a separate studio apartment, ornamental pond, a hot tub and a boathouse plot available separately with fishing rights on the loch.
