St Annes Beach Hut Review #beachhut #stannes #lytham #lancashire

Last week I went to St. Annes to review one of the beach huts on the promenade. Off we went, all ready for a day on the beach with a hut for when we needed a little shelter, a drink, some dinner or if it rained. We went on the Friday and I should have been reviewing on the Thursday…idiot me, wrote the wrong day down in my diary! Anyway, we did get to see inside a hut but unfortunately they were fully booked so we couldn’t have one for the day.

From what I did see, they are gorgeous! You can rent them for a full day, arriving from 10am and only needing to depart at midnight. 

The huts have electricity and fitted kitchens complete with 25 Litres fresh water, fridge, heater, microwave, kettle, cups glasses plates and cutlery for 6,  freshly laundered tea towel, cleaning cloth and washing up liquid. There is also a removable ship’s table, bench seating for 3, 4 x folding chairs and complimentary tea and coffee.

There is a separate building that is for beach hut rentals only. This includes the toilets and also have sinks, washing machines, a seating area and baby change area. We were given the key for that for the day which was really handy for going to change Lucas, especially as the toilets in the nearby arcades charge 20p each time. When we went in at one point, there were 2 women placing 4 children in the sink to rinse them off from the beach.

The beach huts are a fab base for the day to spend with family or friends. They are perfectly situated along the beach, less than 5 minutes walk from the centre with shops and places to eat. I love that you can have them for a full day, allowing you to get the most out of the beach before having a meal and relax before leaving. It would be a beautiful place to watch the sunset.

Even though we didn’t have the hut for the day, we had a great day out. We played on the beach and paddled in the sea, Lucas got over confident and went in up to his waist with D so I had to do a quick shop at M&Co for some dry clothes!

We went on the miniature train which circles the mini golf and along the promenade. That sets off every 10 minutes near the trampolines. There is so much to do for the children, there are arcades with the usual machines, fairground rides outside, trampolines, crazy golf and various play areas.

    The beach hut looks very well equipped. We often use a friends locally and it is a real bonus as the kids have somewhere in the shade to relax if it gets too hot

    The beach huts in St Annes really are fantastic, whenever we pass them I always really think that they have the wow factor.

    This looks absolutely stunning. I’m from a seaside town and the seafront is lined with beach huts, I always thought they looks so lovely to relax in on sunny days.

    You must have been kicking yourself, but they do look like a lovely extra on a day out to the beach. A bit of shelter in the UK can never be underrated.

    It’s a shame you couldn’t get a hut. I’ve not seen inside one of those I didn’t know what to expect. They look great if you have young children.

    The beach hut looks so cosy and relaxing. They are perfect place to wind up if you just want to get away from routine life for a day and can’t manage to get whole weekend off. Love the idea of renting for one day.

    That sounds like something I’d to too, write the wrong day down. The beach huts do look lovely, I particularly like the private toilet facilities. Find it odd when public toilets charge to use the facilities.
    Looks like you had a lovely day out ❤

    We often go to Mudeford and I look longingly at the beach huts, they’d be so handy with 3 kids and all the paraphernalia that goes with them! Plus shelter from the unpredictable weather…

    Such a shame maybe you can go back. They look brilliant – do you know how much they are to rent?

    Such a shame that you had the wrong day. These huts look great, a microwave, water, coffee- sounds like a great base and for someone who hates sand I would have been perfectly at home holed up in there with a coffee watching the children having fun on the beach, although I would have joined in too.

    Sounds like you had a great time despite the mix up with the days! Ita really good they have a separate toilet area. Public loos are never that nice at the beach!
