I have long coveted the seaside tradition of hiring a beautiful beach hut for the day. 🙂 When my friend Jo did just that, for a girly get together by the sea, I was a very happy bunny indeed. ❤
The newly built huts are proving very popular at lovely St Annes on the Lancashire coast. Jo booked through their website St Annes Beach Huts ~ and between four of us it cost around £20 each for the day. The day starts at 10am and you can stay until Midnight.
Each hut is decorated in a pretty nautical style and the space inside is very practical too. Most have electricity and facilities include the all important fridge, kettle & microwave. There is a bench inside which can be brought out onto the front decking area on a sunny day and all huts are equipped with crockery & cutlery.
The time we spent at St Annes was typically British weather wise ! A spot of drizzle and very windy. Our beach hut was a cozy base from which to enjoy our day by the sea. As it was also our friend Marian’s birthday weekend we celebrated with a little afternoon tea spread, a birthday cake and glasses of prosecco. 🙂
The kids loved their experience here too. They were able to make sandcastles on the beach, scooter along the prom, ride on the little steam train located behind the huts and play on the various rides and attractions nearby.
We noticed other families and groups here celebrating special occasions or just enjoying the summer holidays. And the huts are also dog friendly . Plenty of bouncy dogs and their owners were enjoying the bracing sea air. We all had such a fabulous time and I think it is one of those memories we will remember for years to come. I for one could go back tommorrow. :))
