A beach hut has gone up for sale in Southwold in Suffolk...But it will cost you a pretty penny or two.

The 'Happy Days' hut on the south-facing part of the promenade is on the market for the sort of money that could buy you a five-bedroom house in some parts of the country.

With no electricity or running water the £100,000 price tag may seem a little steep, but due to its sought-after location it's thought the 'Happy Days' hut could sell for more than the asking price.

Owners are given a 30-year lease on the property from the council but additional charges do apply. The chalet is subject to non-domestic rates and other charges. The rates for the current year are £720.

So for £100,000 and a few other charges you could buy 'Happy Days', but before you make an brash decisions why not have a look at what else you could buy for the same money.

How about this snazzy one bedroom flat in Luton situated right in the heart of the town centre, close to University of Bedfordshire?

Or if a flat's not your style then how about this five bedroom terraced house in Hartlepool in County Durham for £100,000?

Perhaps £100,000 is too steep? Well, if you head over to Great Yarmouth in Norfolk a cool £35,000 could buy you this restaurant.

Why buy one when you could buy two. In Liverpool £100,000 would get you two, two bedroomed mid terraced houses.
