The Beach Huts sit on a 3rd generation farm in the rural village of Oving


The Beach Huts sit on a 3rd generation farm in the rural village of Oving. The site was once home to glass houses growing soft fruits and vegetables.  The building was taken down in 2004 due to it becoming unsafe.  Rod had the idea to create a building that would be eco friendly, humorous and his home. It was created for maximum solar gain; a series of South facing pitches to put solar panels on - hence the nature of the roof, leading to the look of beach huts.   Rod and his wife Helen lived here for 7 years before starting a family in 2013. In 2015 they decided to move into the family Farmhouse and make The Beach Huts into a holiday retreat.

"It was a wonderful home to us and always felt like we were on vacation there.  It was only natural to turn this wonderful space into a holiday home.  The views are stunning and the light that comes into the house is very uplifting and peaceful.  It was also a vision my husband had and was built/painted and finished by a wonderful team.  It’s lovely to see people’s reactions to this bright and quirky building and it never fails to put a smile on their faces.  The best discovery is often the hidden second bedroom behind the bookcase - this always delights any guest!".
