NO NIGHTS: DAWN TO DUSK ONLY. Beloved painted beach hut on sandy sea front. Close free parking, 200 metres loos/tap. Gas hob, grill. If you're not happy with the price or the value, please don’t book it! It is as well equipped as any beach hut and clean as a beach hut can be but it is a BEACH HUT & there will be hints of sand / dust. Think seaside shabby chic, not TOWIE perfection. Pls check out ACCESS to understand what you are booking - 1 night means 1 day.

The space
Enjoy a blissful day at the traditional seaside town of Frinton-on-Sea, with the comfort of a beach hut. Beloved by families, for its sandy beach which is ideal for sandcastles, sunbathing or a game of rounders, and also by adults who wish to enjoy the sea air with the added comfort of a base from which to have a cup of freshly made tea whilst lying back and reading a book, without ever having to get onto the sand if you prefer!

The hut is well equipped … as beach huts go! It has all the crockery and cutlery a group of 6 will need, and unlike most huts, it has a gas hob and grill so that as long as you are happy to leave it immaculate, you can warm up a pizza or make spaghetti, boiled eggs or fry some bacon! Alternatively you can stop and buy pizza or fish and chips in the traditional beach town 1/4 mile away, where there also typical holiday shops selling buckets, spades, surf boards, windbreaks and so on.

However tidy everyone is, there will be a hint of sand. It's a beach hut. Please don't then give us a poor review because the shabby chic floor wasn't as well carpeted / painted / hoovered as your own sitting room! Please, please note: It is a beach hut!

There is a steep sloped road down to the hut which is not not necessarily suitable for wheelchair users (although we have a regular visitor in a wheelchair who adores it). There are 5 steps up to the hut. IF YOU HAVE ANY SPECIFIC NEEDS, PLEASE ASK BEFORE YOU BOOK! Many thanks.

There are 4 chairs, a picnic and small serving table, 2 very good sun loungers, a bench and a window seat so that you can sit cosily inside the hut with the "stable door" open and look out. PLEASE TAKE YOUR OWN TOWELS!

Even in drizzle or in winter, my family have enjoyed hours playing board games inside the hut with hot chocolate or fish and chips. It is one of those places people return to again and again, with special memories being made there.

The beach hut is locked with padlocks, each on a code which we will give you the day before you go to the hut as it changes regularly. This means that you have complete freedom to go at a time to suit you - no need to pick keys up at a certain point or time as most huts require.

God forbid that there is a problem during your day at the hut, please be aware whilst we will do our best to come straight out if you feel you need us, THIS IS NOT GUARANTEED. We have only ever been called out to false alarms, such as the gas supposedly being empty when in fact it wasn't turned on..... if this is the case, there will be a £30 charge. Thank you so much for your understanding.

48 hours or so before your visit, I will send full information about directions, parking, the padlock codes, using the gas and other such details.

Chisholm's is the cottage wing of our family house, so although you will have complete peace and be totally self-contained, there are always people around; us, our three very civilised offspring (17-10) and the people who help us. We are a relaxed, cheerful lot, and have a very busy life with horses, hens and a gentle, friendly dog. We want you to have the best time imaginable, and the garden and so on are big enough for all of us to enjoy whilst respecting each other's privacy at all times. Your well-behaved dog is welcome, although we ask that he doesn't go on furniture or upstairs, and that he stays on a lead in the garden. You are very welcome to use the pool, tennis court, beach hut (35 mins away) and trampoline by arrangement (all entirely at your own risk) and we can probably lay our hands on a Rectory bike or two, if required! Just outside your front door is the biggest Gingko tree outside Kew Gardens, and you can walk down to the 2 lakes where you might spot our kingfisher, or heron, or the owls. We want Chisholm's to be a blissfully comfortable, spoiling place for you to enjoy so we have really carefully chosen beds, wonderfully soft towels, gorgeous linen, properly powerful showers, and personal touches, as if you were our friends coming for a special stay with us. There are all sorts of things to see and do in the area with Colchester and Sudbury a few miles away, Bury St Edmunds 45 minutes and Newmarket an hour away. Chisholm's has a file which will give you plenty of local information of any number of great things to see and do, as well as local restaurants and pubs. If there is anything we can do to improve your visit, please just ask (nicely!) and we will do our very best to help. If there is anything you'd like to know in advance, or special requests, again, please just ask.

During your stay

The day before you go to the hut, we will give give you a telephone number for an emergency contact should you require any urgent help during the day. PLEASE NOTE THAT PHONE RECEPTION AT THE BEACH CAN BE VERY POOR.

Please also note: in 3 years, we have had 3 calls to say that the gas has run out. These were all false alarms, and the guests concerned simply hadn’t turned it on properly. As it costs me considerably more than the day hire rate to get someone straight out to help, and having done this twice, please accept that we will do all we reasonably can to help you by telephone but cannot undertake to attend. If we do attend, and it is a false alarm, we will have to charge £30 and do hope you understand this.

I hope that you will accept that we let the hut in good faith, and that our reviews over 3 years reflect this.

Thank you.
