An opportunity to purchase a cliff top beach hut in Old Felixstowe with beautiful sea views.
An opportunity to acquire a cliff top beach hut located in the sought after are of Old Felixstowe.
Due to the position of the beach hut it is arguably more private than others. Set above the promenade and the hustle and bustle on busy summer days this beach hut enjoys a more private setting. Conveniently there is a public car park directly to the rear which is by no means large.
The Brakenbury Kiosk is located close by serving light refreshments and ice creams.
The beach itself can be accessed via steps.
License fees for beach hut sites
The site licences in Felixstowe and Sizewell now operate on a two-tier fee system, plus any oversize supplements (from 1 April 2018). This is determined on whether a site is front row (known as a Premier Site) or non front row (defined as a Standard Site). The definition of Premier is defined as having no other beach hut in the direct line of sign towards the sea perpendicular to the front elevation of the beach hut (please note all huts at Sizewell are classed as premier). The basic site fees until 2021 are as follows:
Premier Site 2021/2022 £518.03 (Excl VAT), 2022/2023 £532.28 (Excl VAT), 2023/2024 £546.91 (Excl VAT)
Standard Site 2021/2022 £414.42 (Excl VAT), 2022/2023 £425.82 (Excl VAT), 2023/2024 £437.53 (Excl VAT)
These basic fees are based on the standard size hut, which is classed as 2.13m wide, 2.43m deep.
Many huts in Felixstowe are not of standard size, so please check this carefully before you make a purchase. The following clause is included in all beach hut licences:
If a new or replacement hut is placed on the Site, or if repairs or alterations are made to an existing standard sized hut, the Licensee shall ensure that the Hut does not exceed the standard size'
There is an additional fee added to the basic fee if the hut is larger than this standard size.
Premier Surcharge Per square metre where the site exceeds 2.13m (width) x 2.43m (depth)
£148.99 (Excl VAT) per sq. m in 2021/22
£153.09 (Excl VAT) per sq. m in 2022/23
£157.30 (Excl VAT) per sq. m in 2023/24
Standard Surcharge Per square metre where the site exceeds 2.13m (width) x 2.43m (depth)

Hut measurements are quoted on the licence and are taken from information provided by existing licence holders and our own measurements. If you feel these are not correct, please provide your name, a contact number or email, hut number and location and what you think the width and depth measurements are. An officer will check these measurements in the next 10 working days and contact you.
The Council will use a common sense approach to measuring the hut and will reserve the right to have a tolerance of +/- 2cm. The sizes will form the basis for calculating your licence fee each year. Any agreed changes to the sizes will be updated on our system and reflected in the next annual invoice. No refunds will be given for changes to hut sizes in the course of the year.
