Owning a beach hut is a sought-after prospect for many people who live near the Dorset coastline, and an opportunity has come up for those who may be interested in one on Swanage beach.

Described as being in a "prime position on Swanage seafront" by DOMVS estate agents, it is being sold for a price of £70,000.

The hut is brick-built and in an elevated position allowing for it to be a "low maintenance option protected from the elements".

It has a lease of 92 years and owners on this stretch are responsible for a ground rent of just £16 per annum.

Swanage Beach Hut has 'spectacular views'

Mike Ford, the owner of the beach hut going on sale, described it as a "spectacular site".

He said: "Our hut has given us great pleasure over the years, in which three generations of our family have been able to reap the rewards all year round.

"We’ve loved the spectacular views, as well as the direct access to the beach, and New Year’s Eve is always a special occasion for our family, when we come down to the hut and watch the firework display from, in our opinion, the best seats in town.

"It’s a spectacular site and we will dearly miss being able to pop down and easily set up our table and chairs for a relaxing drink."

John Beachamp, Sales Consultant for DOMVS estate agents, said: "We are thrilled to be introducing this gem to the market.

"With its scarcity, stunning location, and potential for significant appreciation, this beach hut is destined to captivate the imagination of those seeking a beachfront lifestyle. In my opinion, it’s the next best thing to owning a home on the water’s edge."
