Looking for a Beautifully British Seaside Holiday with a difference? Why not rent out your very own beach hut and listen to the crashing of the waves and wake up with that fresh sea breeze through the windows - the summer isn’t over just yet! The Lifestyle Guide brings you our top 9 as part of our Last of The Summer Inspiration.
Only an hour and a half from London you will find the point where the beautiful New Forest meets the The Solent, and you can now stay in a luxury hut actually on the Calshot Beach - Opening your doors straight onto the sand! Sleeping five people, the bespoke furniture has been created from birch wood, installing a warm yet natural feel.
Located on a West Sussex coastal path reaching 7 miles, these huts are self-contained and have the feel of a ‘Great British Hut’, reminiscent of those bucket and spade days we all know and love. With four huts to choose from, sleeping a family of 4 each, this is the perfect solution for larger groups, or families looking to staycation together. Set slightly back from the beautiful pebble beach, the huts have their own private terrace spaces, drawing in plenty of light through the glass wall doors.
This hut is just a stone’s throw from the waters edge, and provides an idyllic setting all year round. The luxury boutique feel is accompanied by the traditional English seaside decorations to make a perfect hideaway for a romantic getaway. Packed with all of the modern day living essentials, but retaining the unique charm, this hut sleeps up to four guests, with a generously sized living area designed with great flair and attention to detail.
This unique and simplistic Beach hut design brings all of the home comforts of a luxury hotel, combined with the privacy of your own individual space. The duplex interior offers accommodations for two - ideal for a child-free stay-cation - and is decorated with hand-crafted furniture bringing a traditional seaside style. The large glass door windows provide unrivalled views along the Jurassic Coast. The fantastic terrace and feature fire allow for cosy winter evenings, with a sunny sheltered spot adjoining the Inn perfect for a summer sunbathe!
Perfect for couples - these huts are amongst the top romantic destination getaways, and here is why! Overlooking the picturesque Hele Bay, the luxury huts boasts one bedroom accommodations, many with a private hot tub and outside decking area, ideal for spending some alone time together in the idyllic surroundings. With plenty of fishing villages in the nearby area, and some remarkable wildlife and coastal cruises, you will not be short of things to do whilst here.
Located at the “Hengistbury Head” end of the sandbank, the Mudeford Beach Hut is a great newly-renovated holiday home for up to 3 guests. With great views out to the SSSI Marshes and across the sea, on a clear day you may even catch a glimpse of the Isle of Wight. The hut is perfect for those looking for a more eco-friendly home away from home, with the solar panels providing electricity for the appliances. The hut has a large balcony area, deck chairs, beach games and even bicycles available for exploring the local area.

With 24 lodges available, the stylish interiors provide the home comforts combined with some great holiday treats. Sheltered by the cliffs behind, why not relax at the end of the day on the private decking area and make the most of the fantastic undisturbed views of the sea.
It comes as no surprise that this Beach Hut is quite literally a blue cabin… by the sea! Sleeping up to 4 guests, the cabin has both great character and wonderful views. Offering something very different than your classic British Beach Hut, this is located on the privately managed Cove Harbour, with all profits going back to support the Harbour. The fantastic terrace area is great for an evening BBQ whilst overlooking the beach and rock pools. Cosy all year round, why not try something a little different?
This classic hotel offers a different type of accommodation, in the way of their rooms Harry's Hut and The Pig Hut. The huts are hidden away from the main house, situated at the bottom of the grounds garden, with a fantastic sea view across Studland Bay. The huts are utilised together, with one providing a place to stay for the night, and the other your bathroom facilities. This cosy one bedroom room is suitable for 2 guests who are looking for an adventurous stay, close to nature, but with access to all of the facilities the hotel has to offer.
As always out "Top Tip" when booking leisure accommodation is to always read the feedback and reviews on websites like Tripadvisor so you have some idea of what to expect and what to look out for before booking.
