Charlie Luxton visits some of Britain's best homes by the sea to find out what makes the perfect coastal property
In the first episode, Charlie travels to the far north-west of Scotland and the dramatic island of Lewis and Harris, where he visits a modern thatched home shaped like a giant letter S. He also sees an eco-barn inspired by a chicken coop; a chapel that's been converted into an artist studio and house; and a once-derelict Highland white house that's been lovingly restored. Finally, Charlie visits a contemporary broch, a variation on the ancient stone watchtowers that dot the landscape of the island.
Charlie Luxton heads to one of the birthplaces of the classic British holiday resort: Sussex. The tour starts in Eastbourne and continues to a luxury mansion in Aldwick, close to Bognor Regis. He visits a quirky bohemian cottage in Cuckmere Haven that's off the grid and an upside down house in Shoreham. There's also a striking cafÚ in Littlehampton, the fisherman's huts of Hastings, and a stylish pad in St Leonards, including a circular bed.
Charlie Luxton heads for Anglesey in Wales. Charlie explores the engineering epic that is the Menai Bridge, which connects Anglesey with the Welsh mainland. There is also a smuggler's cottage; a working lighthouse that's also a family home; and a contemporary cliff-side home with awesome views of the mountains of Snowdonia.
