Crooklets Central Beach Huts

The small, medium and large Crooklets Central Beach Huts are situated around the Pirate Ship below the Crooklets Green Beach Huts, the medium sized huts have three windows, a bench and a fold-out table.  There is sufficient space for four or five inside the hut when the table is folded away.  The small huts have a single window with window blind and a fold-out table/bench.  The large huts have two doors, two windows and a fold-out table/bench.

These beach huts are ideal to use as a base, store belongings, shelter from the breeze and to prepare lunch. They are not suitable for overnight use, and to ensure all hut users are able to enjoy their time on the beach, we ask that large families/groups book multiple huts.

The Summerleaze Beach Office (on Summerleaze Beach) stocks a large range of reasonably priced beach goods, games and toys along with windbreaks and beach chairs etc.

Crooklets Beach is one of few beaches to have been awarded Keep Britain Tidy’s Blue Flag Award, for the coastal environment, water quality, safety and access for all: the Blue Flag represents a serious and profound commitment to both people and the environment.

Good communication, clean hut, very good value.

We are continuing a 60 year old tradition of holidays in Bude and a hut on Crooklets Beach. We really enjoyed our time here again. Hut 69 was a good size for the 5 of us…

J Binder

Good to see that our comments from 2016 had been noted and hooks and a towel rail had been provided.

H Baker

Beach huts were really good, but could do with more of the bigger family huts.

…booked for Aug 18, please inform us when we can book for Aug 19, as there are so few of these huts they are hard to get!!

The Crooklets Central beach huts are fabulous. They are the largest available at Crooklets. We have been renting them for over 20 years now and would never change. They offer the space and facility we need to keep us at the beach all day, almost every day! Its just such a shame that there are only 6 of these available to tourists to rent in a year – its such a worry that we won’t get one.

S Brand

We were disappointed to be told by other occupants that they had already booked for next year.

D Allot

Very accommodating and helpful staff. Highly recommend.

K Richardson

Rented half a beach hut for our weeks stay in Bude. The hut was clean and served it’s purpose for our time on the beach. I would highly recommend renting one out. One negative was the condition of the lock that was provided. These need to be replaced as I struggled to lock/unlock on some occasions.


As always, a great experience to be at Crooklets using a beach hut during our stay. However, we do feel that having to pay the full fee at the time of booking for the following year is totally inappropriate. Surely it would be far better to take a deposit, then complete the full payment as undertaken in the past.


Would highly recommend a beach hut on Crooklets if you have a family. Takes so much stress out of the day.


With everything going on this year we discovered this little haven of a beach hut, our own little space to escape too when areas were too busy and to keep all our beach bits safe and secure. Will definitely be back next year!!


Hiring the hut was ideal for our holiday. It was really useful for changing into wet suits, and everyone in our little block was really friendly.


My granddaughter really enjoyed the beach hut but found it rather close to next beach hut with a neighbour at 59 taking over most of the outdoor space. Possible book a larger hut next time with more space. Tourist board very helpful thank you.


Clean, straight forward beach hut hire, will use service again.
