My Happy Hut is Beach Hut of the Year 2016 and the original beach hut that started off My Happy Hut Beach Hire.
Decorated in a fun, quirky, retro, vintage, kitsch style, full of polka dots and roses, all the little touches inside the hut are sure to bring a smile to your face and brighten your day. It’s the dolls house you never had as a child, all the wonderful, fun, traditional seaside holidays from your childhood, it’s donkeys on the beach and knotted hankies on your head (although you’ll have to imagine those!)
Reminiscent of a bygone era yet will all the comforts of the modern age, My Happy Hut is just that, happy, and so will you be when you stay there.
With stunning panoramic views across the sea to Frinton to the right and fascinating views over to the Port of Felixstowe to the left, where you can watch the huge container ships sailing in the distance (how on earth do they float??) it’s the perfect place to just sit and daydream the hours away as you recharge your batteries after a busy week, month, year.
There are often several Thames Sailing Barges drifting by as well as many pretty yachts, some windsurfers and occasionally a jet-ski or two.
The beach hut is situated on the front row opposite the dog friendly part of the beach that allows dogs all year long, and you’ll be pleased to know I allow well behaved small to medium dogs too (although not on the furniture please). There is a large grass area to the immediate front of the hut before it meets the prom, plenty of room for a game of swingball, or kite flying or a bat and ball game.
Behind the beach hut is a large playing field that has a cricket pitch, football pitch and rugby pitch, next to that is an indoor swimming pool, children’s playground and a skate park. Across the road is a wonderful cafe called Rainbow Cafe and a fish and chip shop and along from that is a roller-skating rink, small amusements arcade, ice-cream parlour and tennis courts! So much choice!
To the left of the beach hut there is an amazing beach cum nature reserve called Earlhams which provides such beautiful views and lovely dog walks.
Toilets and water taps are close by as is the FREE carpark.
Inside the beach hut you will find everything you could want to make your stay comfortable and enjoyable, all crockery and cutlery is provided, there is a 2 ring hob plus grill, table and chairs, deck chairs, camping chairs, windbreaks, blankets and various buckets and spades plus Swingball.
There are glazed windows and doors to the front and a door at the back which means when it gets breezy you can shut the front doors and open the back door for a hut full of warm sunlight and no draughts! It’s lovely and sheltered at the back and gets all the sun in the late afternoon and evening.
