“Beach hair, sun kissed faces, sand in our toes and beaming smiles from ear to ear. Cosy and warm, full fish & chip tummies and love in our hearts. A typical day out with Millie’s Beach Huts. A trip to the beach will never, ever be the same again.” 3 Little Buttons
Late last summer we fell head over heels in love with Millie’s Beach Huts in Walton on the Naze, Essex. The cutest, quirkiest, quintessentially British beach huts that we have ever seen! After a day in one of Millie’s Beach Huts, a trip to the beach will never, ever be the same. Trust me. Once you have experienced something like this, there is no going back.
I’m still thanking my lucky stars that our favourite beach huts are just a hop, skip and a jump away from North London (well, just over an hour and a half’s drive away). Which has meant that Walton on the Naze in Essex has very quickly become our number 1 spot for getting away from city life.
Sunnysands is one of four brand new beach huts joining the Millie’s Beach Huts collection this year. So exciting!!! Not only because it’s buckets of fun discovering new beach huts, but also, have you ever tried booking one of these beauties? You have to get in there super quick, because of course, they fly like hot cakes, especially on sunny weekends.
We were so thrilled to be invited to spend a day in Sunnysands by Vicky, owner of Millie’s Beach Huts. Thank you Vicky! Here’s how we got on.
Sunnysands beach hut is located on the front row of the promenade, just like Harley and Isla. We particularly love the low step up which make Sunnysands especially great for families of all shapes and sizes. With my parent hat on, it’s worth mentioning that it’s close to the toilets and the beachside café. A little further on is the pier, and in the opposite direction a bit further on still and round the corner is the gorgeous Frinton on Sea stretch of beach (that I mentioned in our VLOG).
We think Sunnysands is a brilliant all-rounder in terms of location, as it’s right in the middle of everything. Which, of course is perfect for little adventurers.
All of Millie’s Beach Huts have the most gorgeous of interiors. Without question, this is why we love them so much. Pretty as a picture, these beach snugs are the most perfect places to dip in and out of during a beach day out.
A home-from-home, and like all of the collection, Sunnysands was equipped with things you tend to forgot to bring, as well as most welcome features such as facilities to make your own cup of tea, or frying up your own bacon baps.
For us, something that really stands out about Sunnysands is the way the seating has been cleverly designed. It felt so spacious, and we will definitely be back with more of the family next time round.
Are you still here? I wasn’t sure. If I were you, I would probably already be over on Millie’s Beach Huts looking to nab a booking! You can visit Millie’s Beach huts here to have a peek at all the different huts, locations and current availability.
See you at the beach!
