The Beach Hut | Shoot Location | North Cornwall

Photoshoots at The Beach Hut

Millook, Widemouth Bay, Cornwall, UK

A simple wood-clad hut above the pebbles of Millook Beach, this coastal dwelling offers a photoshoot and filming location which is both intimate and wild. With views across the waves and dramatic zig-zag formation cliffs outside, along with a rustic, white-washed interior and a decking fronting the beach, this iconic seaside shack gives content creators an organic canvas to play with in romantic, remote North Cornwall.


Combining the raw elements of all four seasons with authentic beach house interiors, this unique shoot location in Cornwall offers enough drama and tranquility to bring all coastal visions to life. Stripped wooden floors and white walls allow for photographers and models to arrive at the location without preparation, while the exterior of the cabin, all moss-green clapboard and swaying grasses to one side and vast ocean scenes to the other, is atmospheric through all weathers. The Beach Hut can be hired as seen, or stripped and moved around with external props brought in; the space is as fluid as the imagination is free.


With craggy cliffs forming an iconic coastal backdrop, the grassy knoll on which the cabin sits offers a perfectly rustic setting for a fashion or cover shoot, while the decking of the cabin, with its driftwood sculpture, weathered door and salty breeze, is the perfect spot for windswept photography. Sweeping sea views with a reliable surf break are a large proportion of the pull here, but the inside, with windows looking out to the horizon, a roaring woodburner and vintage, reclaimed furnishings are draws of their own accord. The location is well suited to creatives who understand and enjoy working with changeable weather.
