Weston beach hut

For the first time, people are getting the chance to have their own beach huts on the promenade in Weston-super-Mare.

24 huts are being made available this season, located at the southern end of the seafront near Royal Sands.

Finished in pastel shades of blue, green and lilac, the huts are supplied unfurnished, allowing you to add your own furniture to turn them into a 'home from home'.

North Somerset council has already received more than 800 'expressions of interest' in the beach huts.

There is no fixed price and the licence agreement for each hut will be auctioned through eBay, with the first auction running from Monday 20th and Saturday 25th April.

It is planned to auction off the licence agreements for the other huts every day from Monday 27 April.

To bid you need to go to eBay and search for 'beach hut Weston-super-Mare'.

The licence agreement will normally be granted for a year, but for this season successful bidders will have use of their hut until February next year.

Seafront and Events Manager, Darren Fairchild, said: "Numbers are limited, so don't miss your chance to enjoy your very own slice of sun, sea, sand and superb views and surroundings with one of our newly-installed beach huts for the 2015 season,"
