THIS COMPETITION IS NOW CLOSED. The beach hut is a staple of British summer time, along with ice cream, sandcastles and slightly unreliable weather. But we don’t all live within easy distance of the sea, and some of us prefer to spend the warmer months relaxing in our gardens. Thanks to the Southwold shed by the Posh Shed Company, you no longer need to head to the coast every time the sun comes out; you can bring the beach to you, instead.
The Southwold is shaped on the traditional beach hut design. There is a covered veranda, which serves as a handy spot to leave garden tools, or even a bucket and spade, and it is wide enough to decorate with potted plants, bunting or a garden gnome or two. When you head inside, there is a high diamond window, plenty of space for storage and room enough for a workbench or a small table and chair. It’s the perfect spot for making, mending, planting or painting, or simply for relaxing and passing the time.
BEST OF BOTH WORLDS
For Richard Frost, CEO of the Posh Shed Company, the Southwold’s charm lies with the nostalgia that it inspires. “The beach huts on Southwold’s beach front are some of the most sought after in the country so we wanted to give people the chance to have their very own Suffolk hideaway,” he says. “The Southwold has been designed to evoke memories of seaside holidays whilst fitting into a garden setting and offering the usual characteristics and benefits of a shed.”
