Ten Beautiful UK Beach Hut Stays

29 March 2019

We think it’s high time to celebrate the humble beach hut.  

Once considered as nothing but a handy storage solution for surf boards and rowing boats, these cheery huts actually make the best beachside boltholes you could imagine.

For starters, they’re right by the beach itself! No matter what the weather’s like, you’ll wake up to the heart-soaring sounds of rushing waves and cawing seagulls that make a beach holiday so special.

Here at Host Unusual we’ve got some of the finest hut-havens on offer – all of them ready to blow your mind.

So it’s time to grab that bucket and spade, and head straight for the sand.
