British beach chalets...

We now have the beach chalet bug, proper old fashioned wooden ones not 'bungalows by the sea' charading as a beach chalet or hut! There are lots sprinkled around the UK coast, but are an endangered species as many developers buy them up, build walls around them, or extend them for a larger New England feel. Many even now cost more to buy than the average family home! 

We are lucky to have just stayed in this very beautiful hut at Gwithian Towans, Cornwall. Sleeping six, it has been renovated to a high standard, with fully equipped kitchen, two surfboards in the beams, airondack chairs on the verandah and original bakerlight doorknobs and original narrow (1920's/30's) doors. 

For something with a character, The Shack is beautifully retro and sitting resplendent on an Isle of Wight beach. Or for something quite unique then this beach hut, (pictured below) on a Devon beach is for you. With prices from £1,595 for a week, no wonder guests have included Kate Winslet! 

Something a little more affordable this secluded beach hut for two on it's very own beach and only reached by a footpath. With a wood fired hot tub, no electricity and bed you reach by ladder, it sounds perfect. Now where can I find an affordable one? 


  1. You do know your holidays kill me!!! The only way I can possibly survive all that beautifulness is know that your summer is colder than our winter and we are true wimps and we would probably die of cold!!! But oh the loveliness of your travels and the laid back coziness makes me long for a plane ticket!!! Well a number of plane tickets - one just wouldn't work for us!!! Hope you have a fabulous week!!!

  2. Amazing finds. Do you mind if I put those webs on my Hazy Days & Holidays page? Need to work out how I link back to your article from there too. Also your article about camping - I remember that one being fab too! X

  3. Ahh, the pictures make me want to go there! Really beautiful and peaceful....great!

  4. i adore the secluded beach hut in devon - i love that there is a little trek to it!
