...where would it be? I’m fantasy house shopping so money is no object. I’ve got about ten billion pretend pounds (about three real pounds).

Following for when I win the lottery.

Remote part of the Pembrokeshire Coast (totally overlooking the fact that getting planning permission for such a dwelling would be pretty much impossible.....)

I already live by the sea! Have a beautiful view from the house and a 5 min drive from the beach!

Northumberland. DH and hope we can achieve it one day.

Sandbanks won't exist in a few years time. Canford Cliffs.

North Cornwall. Mawgan Porth specifically - one of the gorgeous properties overlooking the beach.

miranda we love Northumberland too!

For me it would be the East Coast, Robin Hoods Bay. Am fortunate that my family own a beautiful house here already but it's definitely our goal to relocate in time

Bossington,near Porlock. Already chosen 'my' house!

rabbitsandrhubarb Sat 11-Aug-18 22:22:41

South Cornwall - Maenporth, or on the Helford River or the Fal.

Yorkshire coast for me.

bushtailadventures Sat 11-Aug-18 22:32:13

Somewhere on the Isle Of Wight, don't really know why, but I love it there, and with 'money no object' shopping, I found some lovely houses too.

Northumberland. I was born and bred in Northumberland and I plan to go back there when I retire. We've just come back from holiday up in Berwick and it's just beautiful, we saw dolphins just off the beach 3 days in the week we were there.

@GrumpyOldMare is ‘your’ house sold STC on Rightmove? If so it’s lovely.

My house backs on to the beach in Kent. But I love Brighton to.

WerewolvesNotSwearwolves Sat 11-Aug-18 22:34:47

I’m on the Pembrokeshire coast right now! It’s bloody stair rods at the moment but we still went to the beach.

Snoopychildminder Sat 11-Aug-18 22:37:10

Definitely the North East.
My late father was from Cullercoats in Whitely Bay. I would move there in a heartbeat

chewybacca Sat 11-Aug-18 22:39:16

West Wales. Between Cardigan and New Quay.
If I was rich, Pembrokeshire. But I'd need a private beach.

Tara336 Sat 11-Aug-18 22:41:56

Anywhere but Bournemouth area, maybe North Norfolk

MsAdorabelleDearheartVonLipwig Sat 11-Aug-18 22:42:16

North Norfolk.

Budleigh Salterton. A pebbled, deeply shelving beach, tide slays seems to be in, a beach tea hut where you are trusted to take your hot beverage of choice away in a proper mug and to return it, arty shops, old ladies with long white hair and flowing skirts. And it never seems very busy. It’s one of my favourite places on earth.

MsAdorabelleDearheartVonLipwig Sat 11-Aug-18 22:42:35

Oh snap. grin

For ten billion pounds I'd develop a boat that can drive up onto the land and park. Then I'd swank around all the coast.
