£300,000 price tag for remote beach hut

Beach hut silly season continues as people plan ahead for next summer with the latest hut at Mudeford Spit, Christchurch, hut 180 on with Denisons for £300,000 (plus annual rates to the local counsil of £500 and a licence fee of £2,500). According to the particulars it is "a beautifully presented LARGER THAN AVERAGE hut having the benefit of front and rear UNINTERRUPTED VIEWS."

The hut is 16ft x 12ft with direct access to the beach and was renovated 15 years ago, though there is still no water, electrics, nor lavatory. It does have a kitchen though "luxuriously fitted out with a range of units incorporating limed wood cladding to the walls and ceiling". At a push, the hut sleeps eight and unlike some beach huts, it's legal to sleep here for up to seven months in a calendar year.

One of the advantages of the hut is its isolation (except it is of course a public beach). As the Daily Mail says: "The 350 beach huts on the sandspit are so remote they require a 30 minute walk or a ride on a novelty land train to get to them."
