We wanted to get the family together to celebrate the Queen's Jubilee. I wanted somewhere outdoors that had lots to do, good facilities and shelter if needed. Hiring a beach hut seemed to fit the bill!
At £16 per day they are a bargain. They come equipped with 2 deck chairs, an electric socket and a kettle. You have your own decking which is sheltered from the sea breeze and they look onto some grass which is perfect for a picnic.
There is plenty to do in the immediate vicinity - you are steps away from the beach and a lovely walk along the prom which is perfect for he kids to ride their bike/scooter, there are 2 parks next to the huts suitable for all ages and a very clean and free toilet and shower block with a supply of drinking water for your kettle.
Food wise - there is the renowned coastline fish n chip shop, an ice cream parlour and coffee shop and a traditional ice cream can right next to the huts.
There is plenty of space for the kids to run around and we were able to sit on our chairs and relax whilst they played freely in our line of sight. Our family joined us throughout the day - with instructions to bring their own deck chair, picnic and rug and 15 of us fit comfortably in and around our hut.
I'm hoping to book a beach hut again this summer, if you'd like to do the same, you just need to call Blyth Sports Centre on
