Ryan's are excited to announce our Beach Hut of the Year competition is back for a second year!

This year we are thrilled that author Veronica Henry is joining our judging panel as a guest judge. Veronica is the Sunday Times bestselling author of 21 novels, including The Beach Hut, Christmas at the Beach Hut and A Wedding at the Beach Hut.
Together, Veronica and Vicky Gunn from Millie's Beach Huts will choose our winner.
Following the success of last years competition we are hoping to make 2021 bigger and better. With initial reports showing the rise in beach hut sales and the popularity of the staycation, there has never been a better year to own a beach hut and enter our competition!

We want to hear your beach hut stories, it could be a restoration project, a place that brings family together, a sanctuary for getting over illness or escaping life's daily stresses, a life long dream, a come back from storm damage or an escape during the pandemic. You may have used your hut to raise money for charity, the possibilities are endless.
Our competition really is open to all beach hut owners and anyone that entered last year is encouraged to please enter again.
