Beach Hut Hire on The Suffolk Coast

Make the most of Summer on The Suffolk Coast and treat yourself to an authentic slice of seaside life by hiring a beach hut on one of our beautiful beaches.

Along the coast from Lowestoft in the north to Felixstowe in the south, there are a range of beach huts available for hire - from small huts on the promenade to imposing wooden houses raised high over the sands.


Southwold

Southwold Beach Huts

Certainly, the most expensive spot to buy your own patch of the promenade, Southwold is home to a selection of privately owned huts located along beach, most with views of the famous Edwardian Pier. Whilst buying one probably isn't an option for most (in 2015, one sold for £120k!) some offer short-term hires in summer and in winter, and a few holiday cottages even come with their own hut for your use during your holiday. 

Suffolk Secrets, Best of Suffolk and Durrants Holiday Cottages have a range of creatively named beach huts to hire, including 'Pegs Away', 'The Dolls House', 'Two Fat Ladies'. Most come equipped with a gas stove, crockery, cutlery, tables and chairs.

Felixstowe

Beach-hut-heaven-2

Like Southwold, Felixstowe beach huts are privately owned with the plots rented through the council. However there is a waiting list, but take a stroll along the prom and you may spot one available for short term let. 

The council no longer manages the letting of huts, but there is a beach hut share scheme run by www.beachhutsforhire.co.uk. Those involved in the scheme pay a monthly fee for the use of the beach hut on one day of the week, each week of the year. The website also lists beach huts available for short term hire and beach huts for sale.

Lowestoft 

Lowestoft Beach Huts

One of the only locations to still have beach huts for rent and with a long, sandy, award-winning beach; Lowestoft South Beach is ideal for families. The promenade is lined with huts, all of which are just a short walk from toilets, drinking water taps, showers and cafes serving snacks, sandwiches and ice creams and selling buckets and spades, kites and bodyboards should you fancy catching a few waves!

The huts are available to hire for the summer season (April to October), through the winter, and for short hire periods too from Sentinel Leisure Trust. On Pakefield beach, you can also find a selection of 'executive' huts, raised up on stilts, which are privately leased but available for short-term hire periods. 

Just south of Lowestoft beach you will find a beautiful stretch of golden sands at Pakefield. Within walking distance of MarkG at The Tramway Hotel, there is an exclusive-use beach hut available for hire to those staying at the hotel. For more information, visit http://www.markgee.uk/rooms

Sizewell

There are just 12 council-owned beach huts on the rural beach at Sizewell, so as you can imagine they are pretty hard to get your hands on! But if you're willing to wait, you can put your name on the waiting list!
