It’s all about the location at this tiny Dorset beach house in Mudeford Spit, which has hit the market for £350,000 despite the fact it has no mains electricity and can’t be lived in year-round.

The 12 x 10 ft hut is close to Christchurch and was constructed earlier this year, replacing an old hut on the same spot. Mudeford Spit is one of the UK’s best beaches, and the seafront hut has views of Christchurch Bay, out to the Isle of Wight.

The stretch of also sand previously held the record for the most expensive hut at £325,000 – a price tag sparked by the pandemic and rising demand for ‘staycation’ spots – but that’s topped with this latest listing, according to DorsetLive.

Inside the cabin is a modern kitchenette and mezzanine sleeping area with space for four mattresses. But there’s no electricity or toilet, and guests have to use a communal shower block nearby. The beach hut is powered by solar panels and has a water pump for the kitchen sink. It’s also one of only 350 beach huts in the location (only 10 have been added in the last 60 years), making it something of a rarity.

The Mudeford Spit beach hut can be used overnight from April to October. However, it is not accessible by car and is reached via a scenic 30-minute walk. Denison’s has the listing.
