People looking to get their hands on their own piece of paradise could be in luck - as two pubs on the Isles of Scilly are up for sale.

The Turks Head on the small island of St Agnes is up for sale as is The Mermaid Inn is on the larger island of St Mary's.

St Agnes is the southernmost populated island of the Isles of Scilly, which is just a mile wide and home to less than 100 people.

But despite the island's small population, the busy summer tourist season makes it a popular spot and The Turks Head is being marketed for £795,000.

The agents selling the pub say it's "situated on a unique and idyllic prominent waterside location".
