A Dorset beach hut in one of Britain's most expensive seaside resorts has gone on the market for £225,000.

Beach hut 155, Mudeford Spit, near Christchurch in Dorset, has no running water, electricity or bathroom.

Andy Denison, from Denisons Estate Agents in Christchurch, said: "We believe this is the most expensive one to come on the market."

The hut, which sleeps 10, is one of 400 in the area and can only be occupied between 1 March and 31 October.

The wooden hut, which measures about 4m (13ft) by 4m (13ft), is £53,000 above the current average house price in Britain.

An annual licence fee of £2,600 is also payable.

Mr Denison said: "You own the hut, but you have to lease the land or sand it sits on."

The hut, which takes half an hour to walk to from the nearest car park, can also be accessed by train and ferry.

The previous highest price paid for a hut in Mudeford was £176,000, last year.

The hut has been in the hands of a family for 30 years
