Beach hut in Norfolk being sold for £45,000

The shed friendly Telegraph reports.

A beach hut at one of the Queen’s favourite seaside beauty spots is on the market for £45,000.

The hut, which has no mains electricity, gas or water and cannot sleep people overnight, is so expensive because it is the first one to come up for sale in more than five years at Holkham, Norfolk.

The Royal family had a hut in woodland overlooking the beach for around 70 years until it was burned down by vandals in 2003.

Prince Philip also liked to cook barbecues on the veranda of the Royal hut and sometimes slept overnight in its bunk beds.

But the Royals have visited less in recent years since a nearby section of the sandy beach was made an official nudists’ beach.

The latest hut is being sold by estate agents Belton Duffey.
