Beach huts at Middle Beach, Studland

Beach huts have been part of the British seaside since late Victorian times. The earliest examples in Studland appeared more than 100 years ago.

Today, around 260 huts are dotted along the beach. Some 50 National Trust beach huts are available for rent.

The huts are divided into colour-coded zones, giving you the choice of front row seats on the beach or a more secluded spot among the dunes.
