It is also subject to non-domestic rates.

The steep price tag is a world away from our own home-grown holiday chalets.

In 2016, we reported that 10 beach huts in Fleetwood were being constructed at a cost of £150,000, and could be snapped-up for an annual rent of £1,500 plus VAT which was fixed for the duration of the lease.
