BRITS are looking forward to another summer of staycations, as the Covid pandemic puts people off holidaying abroad for a second year in a row.
There's plenty to enjoy about a seaside holiday in England, from pub lunches and beach fairgrounds to coastal walks- but a quintessential favourite worth trying this year is the beach hut.
The quaint multicoloured huts that line some of the country's best beaches have the power to make or break a trip to the seaside.
If you fancy a cuppa, a hot breakfast, shelter from the rain or even space for an afternoon nap for one the kids, these huts can usually cater for all of that and usually some beach games, deckchairs and blankets.
If you're in a particularly fancy hut, you might even get your own private terrace out front.
You'd be in fine company too – Keith Richards has a hut on West Wittering beach and Suggs has a hut in Whitstable.
Best of all, they don't need to break the bank – Beachhuts.com has shared with Sun Online Travel some of their best value huts, for rent from as little as £8 a day. Read on to find out more.
