Return of the beach hut – 5 bed beach hut chalet for only Â£595,000
Such is the demand for beachfront properties in locations such as Brighton, Dover, Swansea and Worthing, that it can be a tale of waiting lists, and, when you do fork out your thousands of pounds, a capped 10- or 12-year council lease. So when a hut comes on the open market in a sought-after spot like Gun Hill in Southwold, Suffolk â€“ affectionately known as "Hampstead on Sea" â€“ it's a rare opportunity to acquire seaside prestige. A hut named Charles II â€“ standing alongside other "royals" such as Margaret and Edward â€“ on the stretch of sand in front of the promenade, which has, according to the owner "just a few hooks on the wall", is a case in point.
