We manage four sites with beach huts along the New Forest coast, at Calshot, Milford on Sea, Hordle Cliff and Barton on Sea.
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 dates may be cancelled if COVID-19 restrictions 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. We can help you to organise a community tidy up.
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 in 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.
The beach hut licence agreement does not allow you to sub-let or hire out your beach hut out at any time.
Our Fees and charges for beach huts cover annual rental and transfer fees.
We work with the NFBHOA, who represent the views of beach hut owners in the New Forest.
We are pleased to announce that on Monday 29th March as the Stay At Home ruling comes to an end and outdoor gatherings of either 6 people or 2 households will be allowed to meet, hut owners will be able to use their beach huts. People should minimise the number of journeys they make, where possible avoiding travel at the busiest times and routes. To keep everyone safe social distancing and the hands/face/space message remains in place.
