Pretty much the only beach huts in the country when you can stay overnight, and also in an idyllic location sandwiched between the sea on one side and the harbour on the other. It’s more like camping, with communal shower blocks and toilets, but many of the huts are rigged up with solar panels for electricity and there is a handy seasonal café and shop selling basic provisions. Children can run free, as there are no cars allowed – access is via ferry, bike, walking or the land train. 

The Owner Says

All the fun of the beach: swimming in the sea, building sand-huts and castles, playing hide-and-seek, messing about in boats, nosing at your neighbour’s beach hut! Great place to watch the world go by: the Isle of Wight Needles are just across the bay and there are always fishing nets and lobster pots being unloaded on the quay.

The local area

There are several beaches within a drive or boat-ride. Highcliffe is popular with boogie-boarders and you can reach sandy Southborne on the open-top bus. Take a fishing trip (07979 081934). You can even head just across the pond to the Isle of Wight for the day. Take the Wightlink from Lymington to Yarmouth.

Best local places to eat and drink

The laid-back Beach House Café (01202 423474) is sand-spit central – the hub of the community. Hang out on the sheltered terrace overlooking the marina and enjoy a huge variety of modern British grub, including a children’s menu. It also offers an amazingly well-stocked kiosk selling cereal, booze, toiletries, plus anything else that you might have forgotten. For a change of scenery, the Haven Café (01425 272609) on Mudeford Quay offers lattés, teas and standard tourist stuff. Fish fanatics will appreciate the stall on the quay. Buy locally caught turbot, whiting and skate in season to frazzle on the BBQ later, or some fresh snacks to nibble on there and then – polystyrene cup, plastic fork – you know the drill. For Sainsbury’s or Waitrose drive to Christchurch.
