A beach hut no bigger than a garden shed has gone on sale for £120,000, the same price as a three-bedroom house in Hartlepool.  

The wooden hut, overlooking the Isle Sheppey, comes with timber decking and a barbeque area, but can only be occupied during daylight hours.

Emphasising the gulf that still exists between property prices in the North and South, you can pick up a modern three-bedroom semi-detached home in Hartlepool County Durham, with an en suite master bedroom, for £50 less. 

The beach hut is around the same size as the average garden shed, and is described by Estate Agents Christopher Hodgson as being in an ‘enviable beachfront location’, enjoying a view over Sheppey.

The hut's double doors open to a decked area leading to Whitstable beach and it comes with overhead storage in the roof.

‘It’s an appealing property to a range of people - from local people who live by the sea to someone who wants to use it at weekends,” says Martin Gullett, of Christopher Hodgson estate agents.

“There’s high demand for it and Whitstable is an expensive area - we have just sold a five bedroom house on the sea front for £2million,” Gullett adds.

Nearby Whistable railway station is 73 minutes from London St Pancras for those living in the capital who think they might want to pop down for the day.

A high street with local independent shops and restaurants specialising in seafood are just a short stroll from the beach hut.
