Fancy a last-minute beach holiday?

Looking for a last-minute getaway this May half term on some of the most beautiful beaches the UK has to offer? Et voila! Check out these gorgeous properties from Wellies & Windbreaks all still available... but perhaps not for long.

Picture this. Long stretches of white sandy beaches, clear turquoise water and long sunny days. And nope, you don’t have to head to the Bahamas to get it – thanks to Wellies & Windbreaks, a boutique holiday rental company.


Seacote – sleeps 7

Where: On the seafront in Selsey Village

Details: Situated right on the seafront, this three bedroom property sleeps up to seven people – making it perfect for two families with young children or one larger family. There’s a private and secure garden – perfect for setting the kids loose to play while you enjoy a G&T, or perhaps the doggos (up to two dogs are welcome). There’s also a great summer house at the end of the garden.

Upstairs, the master bedroom has fab views over the seafront… and a large balcony, so the perfect spot to enjoy the views. I think I’ll take my G&T up here. There’s a second bedroom upstairs, and one downstairs where you’ll also find an open-plan sitting and dining space, plus a kitchen and breakfast room and a separate utility.

Nearby: Seacote is in the seaside village of Selsey, about eight miles south of Chichester. There’s direct access to the beach just over the green, and it’s a 20 minute walk to the town centre with all of its shops and restaurants. You can also walk all along the beach front to get to the village centre. 

Also worth knowing: There’s a hot tub at the end of the garden (available all year round) and a fab summer house.

Cost: £2,300 for the week, plus £295 for the hot tub.

Sunny View – sleeps 4

Where: On the beachfront at East Wittering
