Otherwise you’ll find specific information relating to The Hideaway below:
Where can I find The Hideaway?
The Hideaway is located on the E row (A row is front row), along a small row of beach huts overlooking the sandy Walton-on-the-Naze beach. One of our closest beach huts to the pier, while situated a little further back, you have stunning view over the beach and the pier, whilst maintaining your privacy while still being super close to all the action!
The owners have created a beautiful space to either get those creative juices flowing and inspire your work or chill out for the day.
In light of the space available outside of the beach hut – a maximum of 6 people (adults) in and out of the hut, or 8 including babies and children. However please do be aware of the limited space that is available due to the size of any beach hut. If you need to seek shade inside or due to adverse weather you want to be comfortable!
The Hideaway is perfect for couples, individuals seeking time out, or a family with children.
Can I bring my dog?
Due to an family member having extreme allergies, The Hideaway is not suitable for dogs. There are no exceptions permitted to this – do check out our other huts that can all welcome dogs!
Where are the nearest facilities to The Hideaway?
To locate the Southcliff Pier toilets turn right out of the hut and walk along the path until you reach the set of steps on your left. Follow the stairs down and once you reach the promenade turn left towards the Pier.
You’ll find baby changing and year round toilets available opposite the Pier. Around a 5 minute walk form the beach hut.
The closest tap can be found just a few steps away too. Turn right out of the hut and take the first set of steps on your left. The tap is located at the second row of beach huts.
Where can I Park?
You may find you are able to park on the residential streets nearby and in the station car park but be prepared to arrive early to get a space during the peak weekends and summer (particularly given the anticipated increase in visits during 2021).
Please do be courteous and note the restrictions that may be in place if parking on a residential street.
There is also a large public car park near the station and pier (Church Road, CO14 8DE) which is £6 for the full day.
If you do park here then take an of the slopes down between the beach huts onto the promenade rather than walking round to the Pier. Find a beach hut with the number on – then the lower numbers are towards the Pier. The Hideaway is E11 ;0)
What happens next?
You’ll receive a confirmation email post-payment to confirm your booing but one week 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.
