Southwold. Picturesque village of two dozen seafood restaurants, the Adnams brewery and beach huts that sell for thirty thousand pounds.
Nothing expresses the Englishman's love for the sea more than how much we're willing to pay for a two square meter shed in which to eat our fish and chips.
It's the same at all points of the British coast. A hut in Dorset sold for £250k. That's up the luxury end, though, with electricity and running water. £30k just get's you four walls and space for a deckchair or two.
An hour or two with a paper breathing in the fresh sea air and the price might not sound too crazy. Convinced? Sign up to www.beach-huts.com and be prepared for a five year wait.
