More than £140,000 for a lease on a shed.

The location, location, location rule certainly applies here.
This one is £42k and it is a shed on the less popular part of the beach.

I really don't get the price of these. It's not like Whitstable is miami beach. It's nice yes but it's nothing more than seaburn. Spoons is a good one there I guess.

I’d say worse than seaburn, similar to a lot of southern beaches. It is lovely the way the bay sweeps in and when the tide is in early morning, giving still reflective water it looks fantastic. I’ve got an ebay bid in at the minute for a canoe to get out on days like that for a paddle. But, the beach itself is a pile of rocks. Same with Brighton and a few of the other coastal venues that Londoners and celebs rave on about.

I think of a beach as a big expanse of sand, like what I grew up with, Seaburn, Roker, Shields etc would all blow the minds of people down here. Then you consider Northumberland where it gets really beautiful. Spending the day sat on a pile of lumpy pebbles? No thanks,

I like a good chapel conversion, and took a serious look at this one. Ultimately, though, the upstairs has sacrificed a lot of space to accommodate the height of the windows, and one of the baths is basically a glorified sink. (Interesting village. Right on the edge of the Peak District, very convenient for Manchester, and home to both Shaun Ryder and Bez.)

Not a fan of chapel/church conversions usually but that is canny. Not sure why they need a second bath anyway.

I like it. But......what’s going on with the minuscule kitchen?
An extra base unit and wall unit on the L/H side surely? On the R/H side the fridge freezer should be on the platform and an extra base unit or two taking the worktop along to the step. Where it is now blocks the light from the windows and looks just plain ugly, its obviously not been lived in yet. All that storage space and worktop space sacrificed to hang a few coats up ferchrissake.Wall units in between the windows anarl instead of the impractical shelves.
It looks new so I’d be advising anyone who bought it to get the kitchen manufacturers name and model ASAP and get errrrh errrh someone else but me to fit em.
Otherwise I like it but they’ve let the side down in the kitchen dept.

Went to Embleton bay the other week and it was unreal. When I am old and alone with 3 dogs and a hamster, I would live in one of those.

Yep we seen a house which was on the market last year for £240k and never sold. They took it off the market and have relisted it now for £280k
We had one agent wanting to list ours for £20k more than we did. Ours sold in a couple of days, they may have been right but we were happy with the price we got.

I took my boys for a walk yesterday and passed by a proper timber cabin. Perched on the side of a river embankment with a glass room overlooking the river.
For a retirement place, it was idyllic despite it being very rustic.

I do love those huts but the price is crazy.

You don't even own the freehold, it's a 25 year lease from the National Trust and everytime it comes up for renewal they try to get rid of the huts.

Looks like I was ahead of the game mentioning beach huts yesterday

It says there, £40k is average , with prices of £60k in some places. Incredible when you see some of the houses on here for £120-£150k.

We often thought one would be handy as we would occasionally take the kids to the beach after school. Somewhere to make a cup of tea, have a supply of towels and a few toys etc. At the time £25k seemed common. Plan in advance and buy takeaway tea was the far more sensible option. I can see the appeal for people who spend all day on regular days. An hour of just sitting on a beach and I’m restless to do something else.
