a 'eureka moment' one evening wondering what to do with my beach hut
now the kids were older and our halycon beach hut days were less
frequent, in 2013 myself and my long term friend Jayne Eyers joined
forces to launch The Little Beach Hut Company renting out our own huts,
Betty and Bertie.
The response was amazing so two more nearby neglected
huts were acquired and soon transformed into more little slices of
heaven. We now own five huts which we rent out throughout the year even
on Christmas Day.
Our business is all about 'making memories' for our
hutters and with nearly 2000 clients we are going from strength to
strength and loving every minute of it, especially when we receive
feedback such as this ....
their innovative way of decorating and the very personal touches they
provide for individual customers, the two Jane's have started something
very unique and incredibly special - they are indeed in the business of
making memories. These ladies are a credit, not just to themselves but
to Mersea Island. Their vision in this unique venture and the
considerate and professional manner in which they run The Little Beach
Hut Company is to be applauded and celebrated - long may it continue."
huts have proved very popular for location work along with many
journalists from magazines to television who just love our story, see
images below for some of our press work. Betty beach hut even won 'Beach
Hut of the Year 2015' and was awarded the prize in person by Phil
Spencer from Channel 4 TV. If
you are interested in using us for location work or need hi-res images
