Beach huts have been part of the British seaside since late Victorian times and been a feature at Studland for more than 100 years. Around 260 huts are dotted along the beach today with some 50 National Trust beach huts 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.
