Beach Hut Owners

We manage four sites with beach huts along the New Forest coast, at Calshot, Milford on Sea, Hordle Cliff and Barton on Sea

Contact details

We are in regular contact with beach hut owners and may need to get hold of you at short notice in the event of reported damage to a beach hut. Please make sure we have your current address and phone number.


Your beach hut should be kept in a good state of repair. Please ensure all rubbish and materials are removed from the site after maintenance work so the area is kept clean for all users.

The gate at Barton will be opened between 8:30am and 3:30pm on the dates below:  Please note that further dates may be cancelled if government restrictions around COVID-19 continue.

We will maintain the access steps and hand rails, regularly litter pick the beaches and empty the litter bins to help keep it tidy. Volunteer groups also hold community litter picks on the beaches, if you would like to organise a community tidy up, we can help you.

Buying or selling a beach hut

We do not get directly involved in the sale of beach huts.

If you decide to sell your beach hut, you must complete and return the form on page 10 of the beach hut licence conditions with the appropriate fee within 28 days of the sale. This will transfer the licence agreement to the new owner.  

Sub-letting your beach hut

The beach hut licence agreement does not allow you to sub-let or hire your beach hut out at any time. 

New Forest Beach Hut Owners' Association

We actively work with the NFBHOA, who represent the views of beach hut owners in the New Forest. You can find out more on the NFBHOA website.
