Blyth Beach Huts
A trip to the beautiful beach at Blyth has always been a great day out, but you can now make the most of your surroundings by renting a fabulous brand new beach hut on the promenade!
The Northumberland coast is famed for its long stretches of sandy beaches, and Blyth’s south beach is no exception. The beach huts in Blyth are the only huts in Northumberland, and as well as the stunning views across the sand and sea, they are perfectly situated for access to a brand new children’s play area, walks, cycle paths and a very popular fish and chip restaurant and take-away!
Blyth town itself has an attractive park with a fantastic children’s water play area, a thriving market place, and of course, Blyth Sports Centre – a large leisure facility with a swimming pool and other great sport, leisure and catering facilities.
The beach huts are situated on the main promenade in Blyth, Northumberland. They overlook a long strip of golden sand – popular with walkers, surfers, canoeists, sea anglers and families alike.
There are 20 beach huts altogether - 2 rows of 10. Each hut has a ‘green’ living roof and sits on a timber deck. The timber huts themselves are stained and painted in a variety of bright colours.
To further enhance their individuality, each beach hut has its own name. Children from the local primary school named the huts, and youngsters made their own piece of artwork to go with the names which are displayed inside each hut There is also a new amenity building called the Dave Stephens Centre a short distance from the beach huts where there are public toilets and some external showers.
