BEACH HUT HIRE – SUNNYSANDS
You’ll find this stunning Beach Hut for Hire on the front 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?
With the Pier on your left, walk towards Frinton and you’ll find Sunnysands located about a third of the way between the pier and the Frinton-on-sea corner. This is approximately a 5-minute walk.
Sunnsaynds (no.67A), is located on the front row. With just one steps directly down to the promenade from teh hut (an additional step also into the beach hut), you can spread out around the promenade and it makes her our most accessible beach hut for anyone with mobility issues.
Maximum of 8 people, in and out of the hut, including babies and children.
Sunnysands is perfect for couples, individuals seeking time out, or families with children. With just one large step to the promenade from the area outside of the beach hut, she is our most accessible beach hut for anyone with mobility issues.
Note that she has a large bottom storm door due to her front row location and will often be sprayed during those high tide winter months! Great for those who like to be a bit further removed from the busy pier and busier sections of the beach. You can guarantee that you’ll have uninterrupted sand castle building!
You may need a spare pair of hands to help you with that storm door which can also be used as a windbreak when tucked away between the beach huts.
Can I bring my dog?
As with all our of our huts, dogs are more than welcome, though, during peak seasons, a 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 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?
Sunnysands is half way between the Pier toilets (open all year round) and the midpoint promenade toilets (April to October only). Note this is a 5-minute walk in either direction and likely to be a little more with young ones ;0)
The closest tap can be found just to the right-hand side of Mays’ cafe and another tucked away behind the 2nd row beach huts. Less than a minute walk.
Where can I Park?
You may find you are able to park on the residential streets in and around Woodberry Way and in the 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?
Due to popular demand and it’s great success, we extended our operating hours in 2016 to 9 am to 8 pm.
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?
One of the best things about our beach huts is that we make sure everything is here for you including that all-important bucket and spade. We’ll email you a full ist of contents upon booking so that you have these to hand.
Three things we ask you to bring: MILK, BIN BAGS (please take all rubbish home or deposit in bins on the promenade) and TEA TOWELS for washing up.
Don’t worry if you forget to pack milk (tea, coffee, sugar is provided).. there are lots of shops on the way into Walton, 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. 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.
