Sitting pretty! Clifftop bench offered for £500k

Seat treat: Site boasts stunning views of one of UK’s best beaches PICTURE: WALES NEWS

HALF a million pounds may sound a lot to pay for a bench. But — if you’re sitting comfortably — we’ll explain why it might be worth every penny.

The wooden seat, overlooking a beach named one of Britain’s best picnic spots, is all that’s left on the site of a ramshackle wooden structure known as The Cabin.

But the buyer gets the land — and planning permission for a three-bedroom bungalow.

A spokesman for agents Fine and Country said: ‘The Cabin will not fail to impress you, from the moment you step into the grounds you feel like you have just entered a different land.

‘This spectacular waterside location offers a superb chance to purchase a development opportunity. It’s a stone throw away from the intoxicating, award-winning beach of Three Cliffs Bay and steps away from Gower coastal and countryside paths.’

The sandy beach at Three Cliffs Bay, in south Wales, has stunning views of the Bristol Channel and is a popular beauty spot for walkers and swimmers.

The single-storey cabin clad in cedar shingling was built in 1959 but fell into disrepair when its owner died and was pulled down in 2015. The design for the bungalow features an open-plan living space and a sunroom. The site will be offered at an auction on October 2 with a £500,000 listing price.
