Beach Hut and Concessions

We operate a beach hut service at the following locations:

  • Appley
  • Puckpool
  • Dunroamin
  • Little Stairs
  • Colwell (Seaview Lane)
  • Gurnard
  • East Cowes

The beach huts are owned by private individuals for which a ground rent is paid to us. The nature of the service is that we do not hold records of current huts that are for sale however these are published when available with local estate agents in the press.

The operation of beach hut concessions is also undertaken by the beach and esplanade management service. The concessions are owned by private individuals by which a ground rent or operating licence is paid to us.
