Beach Hut In UK Resort Goes On Sale For £45,000

A beach hut on Dorset's Lyme Regis is currently for sale - at a price tag of £45,000.

The 10ft x 8ft wooden shed on the beach at Lyme Regis might sound expensive, but it has already sparked strong interest.

The property, on one of the most popular holiday resorts on the Dorset coast, has been described as a "day hut".

Overnight stays are banned but it does come with electricity, a cooker, light, seating, storage and a ladder, the estate agent confirmed.

Selling agents Fortnam, Smith and Banwell described it as "a rare opportunity to acquire a hut on the busy Monmouth beach."

The listing stated: "This ten foot by eight foot day hut has been very well maintained by previous owners with excellent fold down decking and superb sea views."

The hut's hefty price tag is down to a surge in interest in beach huts in recent months, as staycations continue to rise in popularity, due to the restrictions around international travel.

Managing director of FSB Kevin Hunt said: "We have had lots of interest already as they don't come up for sale very often.

"Obviously it is an excellent location right on the beach in Lyme Regis which is a very popular seaside town.

"The majority of interest so far has been from people locally as if it is on their doorstep they can use it the most.

"It is the first one on Monmouth beach we have sold for a while. The rise in people taking a staycation might play a part in it. There are a raft of reasons.

"It's a nice place to spend some time any time of the year."

In addition to the purchase price, any new owner will have to pay around £600 a year ground rent to the council.

There is also an option to rent the beach hut to guests for £45 a day.
