Beach huts

beach hutsWe have 3214 beach hut sites in the following locations:-

Clacton on Sea
Holland on Sea
Walton on the Naze
Frinton on Sea

There are some additional hut sites at Brightlingsea that are managed by Brightlingsea Town Council and some at Walton on the Naze owned by the Walton Pier Company.

The large majority of our beach huts are owned by individuals and organisations, including charity groups, who pay an annual site licence fee to place their hut on one of our sites.  They also have to pay National Non Domestic Rates.

Beach huts can be prone to vandalism and some, due to their location, can suffer winter storm damage so we recommend that hut owners insure their huts against such damage and loss of contents.

Huts can be purchased (new or second hand) and placed on site once you have your licence or a hut on an existing site may be bought from the owner and then a site licence obtained.  Some local estate agents deal with sale of huts, local contractors/builders may supply new huts, and some of the Beach Hut Associations also provide information on the sale of huts.

For further information please contact us by calling 01255 686664 or Email

Beach Hut sales are dealt with through local estate agents. For Beach Hut suppliers please see Yellow Pages or contact Beach Hut Associations for information and advice.
