Beach Huts

Beach huts and sites are made available for hire by Sentinel Enterprises Limited - a trading subsidiary of Sentinel Leisure Trust.

Colourful beach huts are available for hire overlooking the stunning, award winning beach at Lowestoft. Most huts are hired on a seasonal basis but we have 30 that are available for weekly and/ or daily hire throughout the summer season. The huts are situated on the lower promenade between Kensington Gardens and the Claremont Pier.

The huts measure approximately 2.0m by 1.7m and are suitable as a base during the day for beach activities and changing. There are also seven huts specifically tailored to cater for disabled users, these are situated nearest the Claremont Pier.

Two deck chairs are provided in each hut and you may take along any other provisions you may need. Small butane gas rings can be used in the huts for the provision of hot drinks, if required.

The huts overlook a mainly sandy beach, which is patrolled between May and September by RLSS qualified beach lifeguards.

A beach officer is on duty between April and October to assist with any enquiries you may have. Full terms and conditions regarding beach hut hire are available from the Administration Team, call 01502 588444 or emailinfo@sentinelleisuretrust.co.uk.

Weekly prices vary depending on the time of year - a comprehensive list of charges are available. You can also read about keeping our beaches clean and Keep Britain Tidy's prestigious Quality Coast Award, which recognises and rewards beaches in England that achieve the highest standards of beach management.

The summer season runs from April to October. Huts are available to hire week by week or in a block. Special offers are available during both the early part and late part of the summer season. Please contact the team for further details.

The winter season runs from November to March. A selection of huts are still available to hire through this period. The cost of hire is at a considerably reduced rate because most of the services provided in the summer season are unavailable during the winter period.
