'Britain's most isolated street' on the market for £1m

If you're plagued by noisy neighbours or simply enjoy your own company, this could be the location for you.

A terrace of clifftop Pembrokeshire cottages dubbed 'Britain's most isolated street' is on the market for just under a million pounds.

The five lighthouse-keepers cottages at St Ann's Head have been lying empty for a decade but are now being sold by Trinity House, who run all lighthouses in England and Wales.

Four of the cottages date back to 1938, with the last built around 1970. They were previously used to house Pembrokeshire lighthouse-keepers and their families.

£950,000 will secure you all five cottages plus two lighthouses, a helipad, helicopter transitlounge and former fog horn house.

You'll also buy into panoramic views of the islands of Skomer and Skokholm, with porpoises, seals, puffins, manx shearwaters and guillemots as your neighbours.

There are some downsides, however - the nearest village of Dale is three miles away and the cottages require total refurbishment before anybody can inhabit them.

The lighthouse will also carry on blinking away on the headland as a warning to shipping - so anyone moving in might wish to invest in some heavily-lined curtains.

A lighthouse has been on the site since 1712 to warn seafarers of the dangerous jagged rocks jutting out of the Irish Sea.
