Beach Hut Hire on The Suffolk Coast

Make the most of Spring and 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.

Beach Huts in Southwold

With its sandy beach and beach hut-lined promenade, Southwold offers a wonderful environment for holidays and weekends away, as well as a thriving market town atmosphere.

Situated just off the A12 between Aldeburgh and Lowestoft, Southwold is the perfect destination for young and old, families and couples. Whether it’s relaxation or exhilaration you’re after from your break away, this picturesque seaside town is the perfect year-round destination. 

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 2022, one went on the market for £220k!) 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. 

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

Beach Huts in Felixstowe


Nestled between the rivers Orwell and Deben, Felixstowe is a charming seaside town with a vibrant town centre and a wonderful mix of attractions and activities to suit all ages and interests.

Set between Sea Road and the Promenade, Felixstowe's new Seashore Village boasts a selection of accessible beach chalets to hire as well as 27 traditional beach huts, with easy access to the promenade, you can make the most of all the attractions on offer at Felixstowe Beach, plus they're just a stone’s throw from the new Activity Park, which features climbing walls, sports equipment and games such as pétanque and ping pong.

Each chalet has a kitchenette including sink with hot/cold water and facility to make your own hot drinks, chairs and tables, electric heating and access to an accessible, Changing Places toilet. 

Like Southwold, Felixstowe also has a range of traditional privately owned beach huts, including 'Cookys and Cream' with Curious Retreats.

Beach Huts in Lowestoft 

Eastern Edge Beach Huts at Lowestoft

Sitting proudly in the northernmost part of The Suffolk Coast is Lowestoft. Famous for being the most easterly town and the first place to see the sunrise in the UK, it's also the birthplace of composer Benjamin Britten. 

With its alluring sandy beach and the beautiful Broads, Lowestoft is a place that connects with and celebrates the sea. The town is a favourite with families, and there's plenty to see and do; with two piers, a wildlife park, an award-winning theme park, museums and a busy theatre.

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 during the the summer season (April to October), through the winter, and for short hire periods too from East Suffolk Council; choose from the stylish new Eastern Edge Huts or the newly refurbished, pretty pastel-coloured chalet style huts. There's a range of accessible huts too, with a boardwalk, beach buggy and changing places facilities nearby.
