This house is less than 50 metres from the beach - and is on the market for the first time in 60 years.

Amy Hart is marketing the property for Savills and commented: "Lambury Cottage occupies the most stunning location with a sandy beach only 35 metres away. 

“Having spent many a sunny day on Mill Bay beach, you just cannot beat this spot."
