Beach Huts

Beach huts are let on a daily, weekly or seasonal basis. They are a popular feature and enable you to have some comforts whilst gazing out to sea. Hire a beach hut, and your trips to the beach are made easier without having to take all your towels, swimwear and children’s toys down to the beach every day!

There are two areas where you can hire a beach hut.

Shore Road Bungalows

If you have children or grandchildren you may prefer to hire a 'Shore Road Bungalow'. These are along Shore Road, below the Recreation Ground. From 1st May to 30th September Shore Road is closed which gives safe access to the beach.

Work is currently underway to deliver the Swanage seafront stabilisation scheme. These works are necessary to prevent land slippage onto Shore Road which has become a serious threat in recent years.  A scheme was devised which includes the construction of new public toilets, two tiers of beach huts and a permanent kiosk on the corner of Shore Road and Victoria Avenue.  The design has been sensitive to the conservation area, ensuring a break in the second tier and a restriction in the height of the huts to preserve the green appearance of the Recreation Ground from the beach.  Incorporated in the scheme are six 'premium' huts which are 1 1/2 size of the standard huts.

All new huts will be equipped with a table, four chairs, storage cupboard and electric power point.  The premium huts will be equipped with a table, six chairs, a parasol, storage cupboard and electric power point.

The stabilisation scheme is scheduled to be completed by early Autumn 2014. If you are interested in Winter bookings then please contact the Tourist Information Centre on the number below.

The huts will be allocated in line with the policy set out in the Booking Form which includes the terms of hire.

Please note: When making a beach hut booking, it is important that you check the location and number of the hut you require from the map on the Booking Form, as all huts will have been re-numbered prior to the commencement of the 2014 season.

These are positioned away from Shore Road, overlooking the bay, a table, 4 chairs and electricity power point are provided. The huts from 1-18 are only accessible by steps. The huts will be allocated in line with the policy set out in the Booking Form which includes the terms of hire.
