Beach Huts

Beach Huts

The Swanage beach huts are available to hire all year round for daily, weekly and seasonal hire periods. They are a popular feature of the Swanage beached which allows you to have comfort and privacy while looking out to sea. They are also perfect for storage, leaving your swimming equipment at the beach, saving you from carrying them down every time you visit.

Swanage Beach Huts for Sale

As a home for tranquil, picturesque white sandy beaches, it’s only fitting that Dorset should be home to efficient beach huts as well. These huts serve many purposes, from providing a cool spot to rest, or a place for your dog to hang out, a private space to eat lunch, somewhere to store valuables, somewhere to potentially spend the night, and the list goes on. This is why many beachgoers chose to rent a hut during their trip to one of Dorset’s beautiful beaches. However, those that visit often know that the price of renting a hut can add up quickly, so renting may not be the most cost-efficient option. Instead, we would recommend buying your own beach hut, with no need to worry about booking dates or paying fees for the space each year. Otherwise, you could consider buying one or more huts in prime locations and renting them out to others in order to make a guaranteed profit in the warmer months. We compiled this list of available options in April of 2020, of course, listings will change as time goes by, so be sure to look for new offers if a hut on this list has been purchased since our article was written. We’ve listed huts according to affordability and sorted them by location, so be sure to take a look at the entire listing.
