A hut on a popular beach in Dorset has gone on sale - for £45,000.

The wooden shed is situated on the beach at Lyme Regis, which is one of the most popular holiday resorts on the Dorset coast.

Described by estate agents as a “day hut”, it comes with electricity, a cooker, light, seating, storage and a ladder.

Sellers Fortnam, Smith and Banwell said: "This 10ft by 8ft day hut has been very well maintained by previous owners with excellent fold down decking and superb sea views."

In addition to the purchase price, any new owner will have to pay around £600 a year ground rent to the council.
