A weekly series where I revisit old photographs and post them simply because I like them.

Beach Huts on the Suffolk Coast ©HelenBushe

I always used to think how lovely it would be to have a beach hut.

I read recently that the most desirable ones on the South Coast can set you back £230,000, with annual fees of up to £4,000 per year. All this is for a wooden hut with no running water, no toilet and no mains power.

I think that if I could afford a beach hut I’d buy a villa very small flat on the Mediterranean coast instead.

I adore beach huts, but those are crazy prices. Like you I’d rather have a flat on the Med 🙂

The colours are great and very inviting, but these aren’t just change rooms or storage for beach toys? Are you serious?

Even your beautiful photography wouldn’t have be scraping up my pennies for that real estate!

Your composition is exquisite, as always.

So expensive! Nice view, though 😉

    Thanks Laurie. Yes and you can stand beside them and take in the view for free

I’m with you there, on beach huts! Very photogenic, but I wouldn’t really pay money for one. Obviously if someone offered me the regular use of a beach hut for free, then I would be thrilled, but I agree the prices for beach huts on the south coast near Mudeford are exactly as you quote, and who would want something with no water or no loo! I’d spend the money on a cottage in Brittany instead……

    A cottage in Brittany sounds very nice indeed. Thanks for stopping by.

I agree, Helen. Some the beach huts on Brighton & Hove Seafront fetched mad prices.

I'm always pleased to read comments.....
