Shed manufacturer introduces beach hut

Garden building manufacturer Waltons Garden Buildings has launched its ever beach hut, "enabling Brits to bring the home the seaside".

The £899.99 huts seaside lovers cost less than the £4,000-£20,000 for one at the coast. 

The design of the Waltons Beach Hut combines the features of a beach hut with a garden summerhouse.  The beach hut is made from 12mm shiplap cladding, sits on pressure treated stilts and features a traditional veranda with steps to the front.

Aaron Ketland, director of e-commerce at Waltons said: "We have seen a growing trend with more and more of our customers giving their sheds a beach hut makeover painting them in the signature pastel colours and decking out the inside with nautical decorations and furnishings.

"As a designer and manufacturer of the quintessentially British garden shed, we saw a demand to manufacture another British favourite, the Beach Hut. 

"After the success of the Waltons Star Wars themed shed, we set our skilled designers to create a beach hut style building that is suitable for the garden. We love the finished product and it is a space where customers can get really creative."

In a recent survey seven per cent of Waltons' customers admitted that they bought their garden shed with more than just garden storage in mind. 

The Waltons beach hut is hand-made to order at their Nottinghamshire factory and comes with a 10 year anti-rot guarantee and secure lockable doors.
