National Beach Hut Competition: Love Your Hut of the Year

The lucky winner of ‘Love Your Hut of the Year’, which claims to be Britain’s biggest national beach hut competition, can win a £500 shopping spree at Cath Kidston to lavish on their hut.

The owner of the hut crowned as the Best in Britain will be awarded £500 to spend exclusively at Cath Kidston (either in-store or online) or, if they like their hut just the way it is, a rather decadent ‘ultimate’ picnic hamper and four-person dining set. Picnic hampers will also be awarded to the second and third placed huts, and all winners will get a bespoke, weatherproof plaque to proudly show off to their neighbours.

‘Love Your Hut of the Year’ launched back in April and the team at Love Your Hut, beach hut and garden office insurance specialist, emphasise that the ‘best’ hut might not be the biggest, most expensive or lavish, it’s what it means to the owner that counts. For example, there’s often a strong emotional attachment, with some huts staying in the same family for several generations.

Owners are invited to enter their hut or chalet in the competition, submitting at least one picture and a few words, exclusively via  Submissions can be viewed on a dedicated Instagram page: @loveyourhutoftheyear. The competition is open until midnight 21August, with the winners being announced the following week.

Pictured above is 'Bertie' on Mersea Island, Essex, owned by Jayne Eyers. "When I first saw Bertie he looked very unloved and sad amongst all the other brightly coloured huts on Mersea beach, being one of the oldest huts, now 60 years old," she said. "So I decided to buy him and rescue him. He is now a very much loved little hideaway, cosy, handsome and stands out from the crowd. Many a family can now visit him with his character and warmth as he is now part of The Little Beach Hut Company and feels he has been given a new lease of life for all to enjoy. A happy ending for Bertie."
