I want windy cliff tops and stinging rain and very little sign of human life for miles except being able to return soaking wet to a nice country hotel with a log fire.

I was thinking scottish borders, but DH says that's too far. Anything a little bit closer?

Closer to where?

North Norfolk

Northumberland is a tiny bit closer or tyneside.

sorry - closer to the south, but I like the sound of north norfolk and northumberland

If you want proper cliff tops, you need the Yorkshire coast, rather than Northumberland, which tends to have dunes. You need to watch they don't disappear from under your feet, though. My parents' house is a mile from the coast and, at the current rate, it's got a century at the most before it falls into the sea!

Definitely second Northumberland.

If it swings the distance thing, I found living in the north-east and travelling to parents in the south-east much easier by both train and road than travelling to (now ex-)PIL a shorter distance but cross-country. So either Scottish borders or Northumberland might not take as long as you think. London-Devon takes me longer than London-Newcastle.
