From remote Scottish islands to the roaring North York Moors, we bring the best beachside hotels Britain has to offer

We've scoured British coastlines to bring you the best beachside hotels in the UK.

Not only do they all provide great views, but they boast exceptional restaurants – most with superb seafood – as well as restful rooms, with the sounds of swishing waves to send even insomniacs into a deep sleep.

While some offer child-free relaxation and pampering, most welcome families with open arms, with the kids only having to take a few steps from breakfast with their buckets and spades.
