The new hut was built in April 2021 and occupies a beachside location near Hengistbury Head.

The hut has four mattresses on the first-floor mezzanine together with sleeping facilities on the ground floor, providing accommodation for up to six people.

Alongside the high asking price, owners will also have to pay £500 council tax and a £2,500 council licence fee £2500, each year.

There are about 360 beach huts at Mudeford, all of which are privately owned.

Bournemouth Echo:

Cars are banned from the spit, meaning visitors can only reach it by land train, ferry or on foot.

However, while the exclusivity and small number of huts contribute to the cost, it is perhaps the views which bring the price tag up the most.

The demand for them has never been greater due to people being put off travelling abroad while the coronavirus pandemic is ongoing.
