Beach hut maddness revisited

that beach Hut I blogged about in Abersoch has been sold for the asking price of £70k according to the beeb and others.

A detached beach hut measuring just 13ft x 9ft (4m x 2.7m) and with no electricity or water has been sold at auction for its guide price of £70,000.

The hut is on a sand dune at the highly-sought after location of Abersoch, on the Llyn Peninsula in Gwynedd with views over Cardigan Bay.

It is in the middle of a row and made of corrugated sheeting and wood.

Agents Beresford Adams, who marketed the hut, said the new owner wanted to remain anonymous.

“There’s always a lot of interest in these huts, because it is a very rare opportunity when they come on the market, as there is only a limited amount of them,” said Martin Lewthwaite, senior manager with Beresford Adams at Abersoch.

“There were three people bidding for the hut, but no-one offered more than the guide price of £70,000,” he said.
