If you picture a shabby shed littered with sand when we say ‘beach hut’, you’ve got it all wrong.

There are some seriously fancy beach huts out there right now, from this snazzy all-red option to the ones on sale for £1.25million.

The latest hut on our hot list is this sweet little cabin, which has been described as ‘the world’s best beach hut’.

It also happens to be the only beach hut in England to have been awarded five stars.

The boutique hut has won multiple awards and has been fully booked for several years by tourists in need of a coastal retreat.

Now, it’s up for sale, with bidding starting at £160,000.

It owners – who transformed the building after buying it in 2015 – say they have already had plenty of interest.

To be fair, we can see why.

The hut, on the coast of Dunster, Somerset, has a large lounge with a dining area, underfloor heating, an en-suite bathroom with a shower, a king-size bed, and a fully-equipped kitchen including a dishwasher, cooker, and fridge.

So no, it’s not your average little shed.

The hut also has front and back fenced gardens with seating, sun loungers, and bike racks, so you can make the most of sunny days by the beach.

One of the owners, Brett, said the location offers ‘unique luxury in a beach hut environment’.

‘We are looking for a price in excess of £160,000 and even after just a couple of hours we have had a lot of interest,’ he added.

‘It’s been quite a journey we’ve had.

‘From purchasing in 2015, doing a ground up refurbishment, being awarded 5-Stars by Visit England through to numerous awards including Self-Catering Business of the Year in South West England and Dog Friendly Business of the Year nationally by Visit England amongst many, many others.

‘It’s has been so much fun having guests either rediscovering or finding Dunster Beach for the first time, but it’s time for us to move on to a new project now.

‘Someone has the opportunity to buy into a ready-made beach hut at Dunster.

‘It has a fantastic reputation and has been featured in many publications over the last few years and even described as the best beach hut in the world by one.’

The hut – known as Salad Days – has been fully booked for the last few years, with bookings for 2021 sold out several months ago.

The new owners will either be able to continue the self-catering business or just have their own escape by the beach ready to move straight into.

Our vote: do a bit of both. Rent out the place for most of the year, keep an eye on the weather, and head there for a mini break when it’s the sunniest. Heaven.
