We had a truly magical day at your wonderful beach hut. Our grandchildren loved the beach hut on stilts. They went in the water with their body boards played lots of games & had the time of their life. A really big thank you. It wasn't too busy either.

Amazing how tired we have been each evening coming home. Relaxing has been exhausting! Really, the sun and wind does make you tired. We had a lovely time, thank you. And thanks for the goodies. The Buddleia drew a steady stream of butterflies. We loved the hut and walked each day to get oysters so that was grand. Thank you again.

We had a lovely time yesterday - the beach hut is in the perfect spot for everything (and was a great shelter from the rain in the afternoon!). Thanks again!

Just to say we had a lovely day yesterday at your beach hut. Super location, we loved the retro theme and superb to have a balcony to admire the views away from the beach passers by. We enjoyed the beach and relaxing in the sun / cloud / sun / cloud, had fish and chip lunch and returned home sunkissed and wonderfully tired from not doing too much and the sea air made us sleep well. Thank you so much for letting us hire your hut.

I just wanted to let you know what a fantastic time we had on Saturday, your beach hut is lovely and we had the perfect day. The Victoria sponge slices were a tasty surprise too, thank you!

Just wanted to let you know your space is absolutely perfect. It's so nicely appointed inside and the location was amazing. Close to the carpark and amenities with easy access to the beach. I'm so glad we've already booked a date for July!

We had such a wonderful day at Lovely Surprise Beach hut. It was an impromptu sunny day visit & we are so glad we ‘seized the day’ and went for it as it was fab! The hut is brilliantly positioned, close to a car park, a little playground for the kids & a cafe which was selling take aways on the day we visited. The hut itself is well equipped with deckchairs, cleaning products and a gas hob (although we didn’t use it as we’d brought our own). The best surprise was its fantastic sized veranda which we sat out on, to admire the view & where we ate out picnic. It’s fenced & gated so it was safe for our boys (almost 2 and 4 at the time). The sandy beach, filled with lots of shells to collect, can be accessed easily as this hut is on the second row of the beach so we had a nice walk & a play in the sand! Easy booking process and a great price! We will definitely be back! Thank you :-)

Many thanks for letting me hire your beach hut for these two days. So relaxing. Thank you. You have a most relaxing location and ambience. Day 1 was to celebrate a friend’s birthday and also with one of each of our grown up children who met with us and they each visibly enjoyed the day. Day 2 was a selfish, indulgent day that was just for me… I so relaxed and enjoyed the absolute peace & quiet. With many thanks again.

Had a lovely day at the Lovely Surprise beach hut for my Mum's birthday! The hut was very clean and in such a good position. We found it to be very peaceful. The veranda was much bigger than I thought and had lovely views over the sea. Cannot wait to go back soon.

Just wanted to say that we had a fantastic day today at the beach hut. It’s the second time we have booked it. And thank you for ordering the fantastic weather. It was my 60th Birthday on Wednesday & a last minute decision to book as we had a few days off work. So glad we did.

'We had a lovely day here, lovely Beach Hut and perfect position for the café, kids playground, toilets and car park. Wonderful 25min stroll along the beach to a couple of pub's and seafood restaurant with outdoor seating. Highly recommended this hut ♥️'

'We had a lovely family day at this well positioned beach hut. It is very pretty and we liked being on the second row with your own outside space, especially given we took our dog. Plenty of chairs and parasols ( very sunny spot) and great to have a bit of sand in front of the hut for the children to play cricket and next time we might have a barbecue on the sand !
Thank you so much we look forward to our next visit!'

'Just a line to thank you so much for letting us hire the beach hut on Sunday. We had such a lovely time! The deck was perfect, plenty of space for everyone; the children adored clambering up and down the steps. They played with "next door's" children down on the sand in front of the hut, ideal for keeping an eye on them. You provided everything we needed and it was great to have water supply, toilets, cafe and parking all so close. I would recommend "Lovely Surprise" to anyone wanting a family day out at the beach, many thanks again'

'I just wanted to let you know that we had a wonderful day at “Lovely Surprise”. The weather was wonderful. The hut itself was so quiet & we were really surprised to see how busy the beach was when we ventured onto it after lunch! My mum said it’s definitely her favourite beach hut so far!'
S. Corgrove
'We loved your beach hut! The decking area is great and perfect to keep the dogs in! I love the reason you brought it! My grandparents used to live in Empress Avenue and we used to do all the things you did! We wish we had our own hut. We had a fantastic day yesterday and stayed until late to have fish and chips! Today the weather hasn’t been so good but we arrived early for breakfast and had bacon rolls so got to make the most of the weather! We will definitely book to have the hut again!-if you’ll have us!'

'Just to say we had a fantastic day today at your beach hut. Everything we needed and the deck was great. The girls played in the sand in front of the hut and played boules. We had a lovely lunch at the cafe and the sun shone!! A lovely chilled day which my daughter and son in law really needed. Many thanks.'

'Thanks for letting us hire the hut today - it was absolutely beautiful. It is a shame the weather wasn't better but I took some board games for the kids. Thanks for the cakes - really thoughtful. I look forward to my next day at the end of the month!'
D. Hitchins
'Just to say thank you for another wonderful day in your lovely beach hut! The weather was changeable (to say the least), so after a swim in the sea (in the glorious sunshine), we were able to hide out in the warmth of the hut with a cup of tea and slice of cake, watching the sky blacken and the rain pour down. Board games at the ready to occupy the kids, not an electronic device in sight, worth every penny. Thanks!

'We had a lovely day at your beach hut and the sun was out. The hut was very clean and had all we needed to make it a lovely day. Nice decking area with table, chairs and sun bed to enjoy the sun. Plus games for the little ones. Also cosy inside if you’re not so lucky with the weather. Very close to the beach snack bar and shop. Lovely place and very welcoming. Would recommend lovely surprise for sure.

'I hired this lovely beach hut today with a friend and 4 children. We all had a fabulous time. The view from the decking is lovely and as the decking has obviously been newly extended it gave us plenty of room to picnic out there. The grown ups enjoyed some quality relaxation time in the hut when the wind picked up on the pretty bench and comfy sun lounger whilst the kids made the most of the huts' buckets and spades in the area in front of the hut. The 30 second walk to the cafe for an ice cream made the huts' location very popular with the kids.'

'We hired Lovely Surprise for a small birthday party at the beach for my son and it was perfect. Loads of space inside and on the decking area, really great sea views and so cosy inside the hut! We had loads of fun. We've booked again this year, but this time for a more relaxing visit with fewer children!!!'
