 Beach Hut Hire – Seas The Moment


With your own private balcony, you’ll find this stunning beach hut for hire on the fourth row of Southcliff Promenade, Walton on the Naze, Essex.

Spring/Summer – £50  (May to September);  Autumn/Winter – £35 (October to April)


Where can I find the beach hut?

Situated about three quarters of the way between Walton on the Naze Pier and the Frinton corner.  Walk along Southcliff Promenade until you reach beach hut A146, where you will find a set of steps which lead all the way up to D146


Suitable For?

Maximum of 8 people, in and out of the hut, including babies and children.

Seas the Moment is perfect for couples, individuals seeking time out, or families with children.  If you are someone who loves a quiet spot above the busy promenade for sunbathing and chilling, this is for you!


Can I bring my dog?

As with all our of our huts, dogs are more than welcome, though, during peak seasons, prior agreement is required for more than one average size dog.  We do find we accommodate this subject to the overall party sizes – don’t be scared to ask before booking.

Walton’s beach directly in front of the beach hut is dog-friendly all year round. You have a good few miles of beach all year to explore and let them off the lead.  As with all outdoor locations – do please remember to clean-up (and if you forget your ‘poo-bags’ you’ll find a few spares in the beach hut).


Where are the nearest facilities?

During peak seasons toilets are available in the middle of the promenade as well as opposite the pier.  These are currently open 10am to 8pm seven days a week.


Where can I Park?

You may find you are able to park on the residential streets in and around Woodberry Way and in the railway station car park. However, there is a large public car park near the station and pier (Church Road, CO14 8DE).

Please do be courteous and note the restrictions that may be in place if parking on a residential street.


What time can I arrive and depart? Can I sleep overnight?

Our current hours are 9 am to 8 pm but note that toilets are currently not available until 10am.

Unfortunately, you cannot sleep overnight in our beach huts but the late departure time will allow you to arrive for bacon rolls and leave the beach hut post some fish and chips!   A number of our guests brought PJs with them for the younger members of the family – a quick change pre-car journey and much easier once home!


What will I find in the Beach Hut?   Do I need to bring anything?

In normal circumstances – we’d normally provide everything you need for a day at the beach. However, in these bananas times, we’ve had to restrict our contents to ensure the safety of our team who clean daily but also yourselves as guests.

Unfortunately, this has meant removing, beach toys, games, books and tea, coffee and sugar.

Please do feel free to bring yours along (gas stove, kettle and crockery all still in place) but if you feel uncomfortable using our crockery, then do pack your own.

Don’t forget the all-important – MILK, BIN BAGS (please take all rubbish home or deposit in bins on the promenade) and TEA TOWELS for washing up.

There are lots of shops on the way into Walton if you forget, and you’ll find a Tesco express in the centre of Walton itself. You’ll also find the seafront cafe’s and Pier open during peak times.


How do I pay?

Our payment is safe and secure, using PayPal or Stripe. But don’t worry if you don’t have a PayPal account to use – we accept credit and debit cards and when you checkout, you’ll be guided through the process. Payment will be taken in full at time of booking.

We will refund the full value of your booking less £15 if cancelled more than two weeks pre your booking. Unfortunately, we cannot refund any bookings that are cancelled less than two weeks ahead.


What else do I need to know?

The only things left is read our T&Cs.   I want you to have fun and for your day out to be the best it can – please do take 5 minutes to read through these.  My biggest plea is to keep to the numbers of guests we have stipulated.

One of the many reasons questioned for the licence change of our prior huts on the private development was that there were too many ‘large’ parties and I know I found myself calling some parties direct who had several other guests with them or who happened to be in the area.   We have incurred a significant amount of cost due to this – please help us avoid this with our new huts.    Any parties found to be breaching those T&Cs will be asked to leave (sorry to be a stickler but we’ve been badly burnt by this one!!).

Please do look at our FAQs if it hasn’t been covered above.


What happens next?

You’ll receive a confirmation email post payment and a followup email containing all the information above so that you have this to hand.

Two weeks pre your booking, you’ll receive another email from us with a code to access the beach hut (key safe has codes regularly changed for security and contains keys to the hut).   We do not currently operate a meet and greet service to give you flexibility re your arrival time but you’ll find someone close by who may pop by to check that everything is how you expect.

    We two mum’s two teens and three small dogs enjoyed a sunny Friday at this hut

    The hut is very clean and has everything you could wish for (except a pen to write in the guest book 😡.) I loved the two lounge style seats. Personally I think 8 people would be tight for space there were dog toys and games /books. We didn’t use any of the extra bits but the hut was nicely decorated and beautifully clean

    It’s very peaceful being on the forth row but not far to a tap and the toilet. I wouldn’t recommend this but to unfit peop!e or people with young children due to the large number of steps

    Booking was quick and easy great customer service

    I will book again

    Had a fabulous day at this beautiful beach hut. The hut was well equipped with everything that was needed. The location on the 4th row suited us perfectly as our children are teenagers so are independent to come back & forth , being in the 4th row was very relaxing, peaceful & private. Am hoping to book again in a couple of weeks .

    We enjoyed a perfect Easter Sunday here. Quiet and peaceful up the top, perfect for the dogs on the veranda too. I’ve hired front row before but definitely prefer the privacy you get on the 4th row. There are lots of steps but my 5 year old didn’t struggle. Close to water, toilets and not too far from the pier or Frinton if you like a stroll. We’ll be back. Thankyou Millie’s Beach Huts

    What a fabulous day at this beach hut! The hut itself was beautifully presented, exceptionally clean and had everything we needed for a perfect day at the beach. Would highly recommend and we will certainly be booking again. Thanks so much xx

    We had a wonderful day at this beach hut with relatives who had travelled from Manchester. The age range was 2 and a half to 10 years for the children and they were kept amused by all the beach equipment and games in the hut. A big thank you to the owner for the note telling us that there is always beach available to the right of the steps ,as you go down , even at high tide.
    The beach hut is immaculate and extremely well equipped with everything you need for a day at the beach. Water tap and loos nearby are another plus. Will definitely be using again.

    I booked seas the moment for a surprise for my partner who was in need of stress free day from work. We packed up a few essentials plus his favourite Sunday paper & off we went. The beach hut was just what we hoped for, clean, bright & airy with everything you need catered for. I like to be away from the crowd so being on the fourth row back was perfect. Very peaceful but still with an amazing view of the sea. When the tide went out it was breathtaking. Weather was a bit drizzly when we arrived, but in the afternoon the sun came out & it was amazingly warm. The added balcony in front of the beach hut was the perfect place to relax with a glass of wine or two. We thoroughly enjoyed our beach hut visit & would definitely recommend. We will be back.

    A change to our original booking (Isla being unavailable due to the times we are living in at the moment) meant a change from a front row hut to a fourth row hut, but turns out this made us realise how much we preferred being up out of the way without the constant string of people walking past…A very happy boy spent his 11th birthday in a gorgeous hut playing on a lovely beach with lots of presents all on a warm and sunny day.. What more could you ask for.. Thanks so much it was perfect and we will definately be back!! Xx

    Another day spent in Seas the Moment..Our very dear family friends joined us for the day and despite the weather (rained pretty much all day) after a stroll along the front and the kids wiping us out in the arcades!!! the hut provided us with the shelter we needed to enjoy our picnic ( with added hot chips and warm doughnuts, picked up on the way back) hot chocolate and tea’s, whilst snuggled under the soft blankets…A few games of cards (the jar of shells were very handy as our “chips”) and a quiz or two provided lots of fun (especially when the shells became £5 notes instead!!!) …Overall another perfect day.. Looking forward to coming back again soon. xx
