18 'super beach huts' up for grabs in Bournemouth

New 'super beach huts' are set to go on sale in Bournemouth.

All 18 of the huts are bigger than traditional ones, measuring around 4.3m x 2.3m.

Work to build the super huts , to the west of Alum Chine towards the Poole border, is set to start at the end of the month.

The huts are available on a first-come-first-served basis and new owners will be able to decorate the inside as they wish.

Currently, there is a 10-year waiting list for both private sites and annual lets in the area, but there is no queue for a super hut.
