A pilot scheme to build luxury beach huts is now to be rolled out throughout the UK in a £35m expansion plan. Each beach hut will sleep four to six people, with a separate bedroom, fully fitted kitchen, bathroom, sitting area and 24 hour concierge service. Beach Hut Resorts have declared their first luxury beach hut development to be in Whitley Bay, offering 24 hour overnight accommodation with full service facilities, 11 months of the year. The company behind the development, Newcastle upon Tyne based Beach Hut Resorts are in advanced discussions with Councils and land owners to develop similar schemes from the South Coast to Scotland.
Darren Baker, financial director of Beach Hut Resorts, said: “This project is about more than just providing a place where people can enjoy a truly traditional family holiday. Over the past 20 years cheaper, overseas package holidays have caused a huge decline in demand for the domestic holiday and short breaks; the financial effect on costal towns has simply been devastating. We are aiming to re-brand the “staycation” holiday, to enhance all that these exciting locations have to offer. “
“We have decided to work with landscapers in the immediate location of each development and build program, using local merchants and suppliers whenever possible”.
