Prestigious national competition Beach Hut of the Year has drawn to a close and we are delighted to announce the overall winner is "No 34", The Promenade, Westward Ho!, North Devon. Fighting off competition from all around the coast of the UK, proud owner Patricia Bevan of Bideford also won the Best Presented Hut category and the top prize of a luxury hotel break for two!
Patricia said: "I can't believe it, I never
expected to win! I just thought our hut was
quite ordinary - patriotic, yes, but cosy too.
We think it's the perfect place for a welcome
rest, but to be named as the Best Beach Hut
in Britain is beyond our wildest dreams. Thank you!"
Promoters and beach hut insurance provider,
TL Risk Solutions, said "The judges chose
Patricia's hut over all the others because it
manages to combine retro, seaside and
patriotic themes in a way that perfectly sums up the Summer of 2012."
