A beach hut fit for a royal has gone on the market for a princely sum.

The newly constructed beach hut Victoria on Gun Hill, Southwold, is up for sale with estate agent Durrants for £75,000.

It sits next to Albert, along a row of huts named after members of the royal family.

Durrants’ Southwold office manager Roseanne Green said: “It’s on the sand so it’s smaller. It’s a brand new hut, as the last one was damaged in the storms last year.

“It’s a sweet little hut.”

Mrs Green also said the hut was empty, so the new owner could add what they wanted to it.

She added: “Huts on the promenade are selling for about £150,000, so you could get one just a few feet away for half that price.

“It’s absolutely ideal for a family with young children.

“There’s more open space than on the promenade and not so much foot traffic.”
