A parking space in Cornwall is put on the market for £ 100,000
A small parking space has been put on the market in a trendy part of Cornwall for £ 100,000.
The place is very close to Porthmeor beach in St Ives, but would cost you the same amount of money as a two bedroom apartment in Cardiff or a semi three in Swansea. Properties you can buy in Wales for £ 100,000 or less.
The 5m x 2m private parking lot in Cornwall is considered the most expensive parking space in Britain outside of London.

He added: “This private covered car park is a stone’s throw from local beaches, restaurants and coastal walks.
“The Tate, Porthmeor Beach, Coastal Path, Fore Street and the Harbor are all within walking distance of this perfectly positioned parking space, eliminating the hassle of limited parking during peak seasons and providing shelter from coastal winds in the summer. winter.
“The Digey Garage is located near the Bumbles Tea Room at one end of the street called The Digey. Electronic doors open to the outside. There is a switch just inside if needed with natural light inside.”
