A one-room beach hut (similar to these above) with no electricity or running water (but stunning views) was put up for sale recently for £126,000 here at Mudeford Spit, Dorset.

It has no running water, mains electricity or loo, but this beach hut is on the market for £126,000 – enough to buy you a house in some parts of the country. The one-room hut measures 13ft by 12ft and is on a sandy spit of land accessed only by a small ferry, a long walk or a novelty ‘Noddy’ train (though the train and ferry don’t run on week days in winter).
Estate agents say it is its remoteness and inaccessibility that make the location, Mudeford Spit near Christchurch, Dorset, so desirable.

The white hut is called Ye Idlehour - even though the location is fab' i'd still rather be idle somewhere else if I had that sort of money!!

Thanks for your time, your thoughts/comments are always welcome
Regards - Sarah J x

For that money I'd want a better! Yes, you could get a perfectly respectable house here for that, and on a bus route too.
You've got a mix of lens flare and rays of light caught side-on against background shadow. Anyway I like it.

I like the light, and the classic triple composition - but you can keep the hut, thanks. I could do with one on the East coast though, wouldn't have to get up for the sunrises!! Grin

It's madness - I love beach huts, however; a reminder of my childhood I guess. Great composition and light and I don't mind the lens flare at all.

People wait years for a hut to come on the market, so it's no wonder they fetch silly money.
Even so, that is some price for a shack. I remember it being in the papers. I bet the ones at
Sandbanks, down the road, go for even more. The third most expensive location in the world.
Hope they got pleasant neighbours. Ours were a noisy lot Sad

And the view from these Huts would have to be bloody good for me to even consider £250

Thanks for the comments gentlemen, and to all those who clicked too, appreciated!

Clive, I used to live in Sandbanks, the gate at the bottom of my garden used to literally open onto the sand, was my playground Smile My Dad really regrets selling now, this was in the early 70's though before it became mega-rich!

They're certainly lovely beach huts and the light you've captured is wonderful. I bet that's a better pic than on the Estate Agent's blurb!

I know it well. Lots of well-off folk retire down here and there's also the dreaded Financial Services lot and the spin-off from the New Forest rich incomers. If you're working class though the wages are below the national average, while house prices are above. Well-captured image by the way!.
