Hire a Beach Hut

The stylish Beach Huts in Bude range in size from small to extra large, with some that are fully accessible and perfect for families and those with limited mobility.  The beach huts are intended for daytime use only and do not have electric or water services.

There is no more classic site on Cornish beaches than rows of these cute, colourful shelters. Pretty, practical and cheaper than you think, they provide shelter and security for your possessions in style. Beach huts aren’t too common in Cornwall, and the Guardian describing these as “hot property” and recommending that visitors “surf the Atlantic rollers at Bude then dry off in a hut on the sandy shores of Summerleaze or Crooklets”. The huts don’t have electricity or water, but they simply ooze old school seaside charm.

You can view the availability charts for each hut and book online via the tiles below.  A handy map of the hut locations on both Summerleaze and Crooklets beach can be viewed here.

The important bits…

  • Beach Hut prices differ according to the time of year, size and location.  Most huts have a set price regardless of how many people are using it, but some huts are a per person price.  A price guide is shown on each website page, which can be viewed via the tiles below.  Exact prices are shown when you use the ‘Search and Book’ facility or via the availability calendar which is viewable on each page.  Special offers are sometimes available when you book online.
  • Hopefully, the aerial images of the beaches (displayed on each Beach Hut page below) are sufficient to show you the exact location of the different hut areas.  If you’re unsure, please look at the Beach Hut Map.
  • We rent beach huts on a ‘per night’ basis, and each daily hire starts from 10am and finishes at 9am.  This is to allow you to use the hut in the evening and early morning.  When you have finished with the hut, you simply post the key through the letter box at the Summerleaze Beach Office.  If you return the key late, the next booking will be late too.  We reserve the right to charge a fee under these circumstances.
  • Generally, all huts have a folding table, hooks and a rail and some have a bench.  The Deluxe huts have a gas stove, tea and coffee etc.  Exact information about each hut will be presented as you proceed to book.  You can hire deck chairs from the Summerleaze Beach Office (subject to availability).
  • It’s fine to have a BBQ outside of the hut, but please me mindful that you must not block access or cause a nuisance to other beach users.  BBQ’s are not permitted on the wooden decking at Summerleaze.  Dedicated fire-proof bins are provided at Summerleaze and Crooklets Beach for the disposable BBQ’s.
  • Please ensure you state the correct number of people when booking the hut.  There is a maximum occupancy for each hut and for each beach hut area.  This is to ensure there are never too many people in each location – which would ruin the experience for other beach hut users.
  • Dogs are welcome in each beach hut area, but please be mindful of seasonal dog-ban/restrictions on the beach.
  • Unfortunately, Beach Huts do not have mains water or electricity.

For singles and couples:  The small beach huts have just enough space to sit inside with two deck chairs.  If you want more space, please opt for a larger hut.

For groups of 3-6:  The medium huts at Crooklets Central, Summerleaze Green and Lower Terrace are most suitable for groups of three to six people.

For groups of 6+:  The medium and large huts at Crooklets Central are great for up to eight people.  Deluxe hut 24 at Summerleaze Upper Terrace can accommodate ten people and the Extra Large huts are great for groups of 10+.  The large huts at Summerleaze Green and North Crooklets are a great size too.

Accessible to those with limited mobility:  For sand-free and level/sloped access from the car park, look at the beach huts at Summerleze Upper Terrace, Summerleaze Green, Crooklets Green, Crooklets North, Crooklets Promenade and Crooklets Central.  There is a short walk over sand to reach the huts at Summerleaze Decking. 

Accessible to wheelchair users:  The Extra Large and large beach hut 24 at the Upper Terrace on Summerleaze and the medium huts at Crooklets Central are most suitable for wheelchair users.   The Extra Large huts are at the end of the sand path to Summerleaze Beach.

Beach Hut Tariff

There are a broad range of prices.  Generally, the price increases for large huts, and those in more desirable locations.  At the booking stage, you will see various tariffs.  The standard tariff is non-refundable and non amendable.  If you would like the flexibility to change your booking date, an amendable non-refundable tariff is sometimes available.  Whilst these bookings are not refundable, the dates can be changed (subject to availability) up to five days before the stated start date. The booking duration and hut location may not be changed. If the new booking covers a higher tariff, the difference will be charged. If the new booking covers a lower tariff, the difference will be refunded.  You may also see a Special Offer tariff.  These are non-amendable and non-refundable.  Special offer tariffs appear periodically and offer great discounts.
