A plot of land is for sale in the UK's prettiest town that has planning consent for a two-storey home.

Earlier this week, we reported that Keswick in the Lake District has been judged to be the prettiest town in the entire country.

The town is built around the heart of a historic market square that is pedestrianised and is surrounded by pubs, hotels and businesses.

Hope Park and Fitz Park remain very popular, along with the views of Skiddaw and Latrigg.

The land in question is close to 1 Briar Rigg and is less than a mile to the north of Keswick town centre.

According to Rightmove, the average price of property in the town is £322,577, including flats, terraced properties and semi-detached properties.

The land is listed at £195,000 and local occupancy restrictions apply. Local occupancy restrictions vary from property to property and estate agents will be able to provide any details on this.
