Are these the most expensive beach huts in Britain?

Everybody recognises what they look like, the brightly coloured huts that stand in rows on beaches up and down the country.

Beach huts are generally used for shelter or changing facilities, however a development company in Torquay is changing the game and are currently producing six to value of £2.2m!

So, why are they worth £2.2m? This image of the interior right provides a good clue.

The luxurious beach huts are being built at Torquay’s upmarket Cary Arms and are part of the de Savary family’s £4.5m development plans for the boutique hotel which includes new suites and a spa.

It’s often that beach huts get valued, however when completed it’s expected that they will be the most expensive in Britain, offering guests some of the best sea views in the land. Downstairs will feature a large lounge area which leads out on to a decked area under a canopy.


The new accommodation will double the number of rooms at the beach side hotel. Guests will enjoy huts formed across two levels with a king double bed located on the mezzanine, whilst porthole windows will provide perfect sea views.

The complex was opened in 2008 and is managed by Peter de Savary’s wife Lana; Peter cut the first sod on the development last autumn and the pair hope to have a show room ready by the end of June.

The beach huts on the cliffside also include grass-roofed, wood-clad suites tucked beneath them, a luxury spa and plunge pool.
