Beach huts for sale: TOP TEN of Britain’s most beautiful

July 12, 2012 at 11:44 AM 1 comment

Some say it’s a property market with no foundations built on shifting sands but despite often having no running water and cramped living conditions,  Britain’s beach huts are rapidly reaching castle-like prices.

Last month an 18ft wooden hut overlooking the Solent on Mudeford beach near Christchurch – the Knightsbridge of the beach hut world – fetched £170,000 after going on the market for two days. And this week an 11ft former fisherman’s hut with views of Lyme Bay and Chesil beach in Dorset (and the Olympic sailing area) was put up for sale at £75,000 through eBay.

But not all such beach retreats are so expensive. So here’s some of the more alluring but affordable if you have a yen for hitting the huts. All these properties, like almost all beach retreats in the UK, are available on year-long leases negotiated (usually) annually and not available for overnight use.
