You could stay in a converted lifeboat station with stunning beach views when it opens up via Airbnb.

The old station in Hoylake, Wirral, was snapped up by Jo Earlam who painstakingly refurbed this piece of history along the coastline.

It now has two bedrooms, multifunctional office space and boasts a number of maritime and nautical items and antiques Jo had collected over the years.

"I have spent some time in the station over summer and it has been amazing - it is hard not to smile when you have such a stunning view, it is a really spectacular property."

The remodelled station is now a luxury penthouse apartment with an open plan living area and kitchen, two bathrooms, shower room and two double bedrooms - one of them secluded away in the former turret room.

Downstairs there is also an office space which is used during the week and at weekends by the pop-up coffee shop.
