Iconic Langland beach huts set to be snapped up

Swansea Council is gearing up to make one of the most important annual draws for one of its treasured assets.

langland bay beach huts

The instantly recognisable green and white Edwardian beach huts at Langland Bay are set to be allocated to lucky residents through a random draw, which will take place in March this year.

Residents living within Swansea can now apply online for one of the 57 available huts, providing them with a prime view of one of Gower's picturesque bays.

Rental options including three, four and ten-month tenancy agreements starting from April 2020.

Applications for the much sought after beach huts ends on 6 February. Last year a total of 120 applications were made for the 57 that were available.

Robert Francis Davies, Cabinet Member for Investment, Regeneration and Tourism, said: "Our iconic beach huts at Langland have been a fixture at the bay for decades.

"The popularity of them means we have to carry out a draw each year so we can allocate the huts in a fair way.

"Lucky applicants will be able to choose from a variety of rental periods and we will let applicants know in March if they have been successful."

Langland Bay has previously benefited from investment to rebuild the seawall. More recently the beach was designated as 'smoke-free' encouraging visitors not to smoke during their visit - resulting in less smoking related beach litter and a healthy environment for everyone.

Cllr Francis-Davies added: "Langland Bay is very popular with residents and visitors throughout the year and especially in the summer months. The previous investment to rebuild the seawall along with the 'smoke-free beach' designation are part of our continued efforts to make the bay an enjoyable visit."
