This three bedroom beachside home is a really good catch because it has been converted from a former fishing boat called Doris.

Her sea faring days over, Doris now offers the chance for a life close to the sea, rather than on it.

Ben Marchbank, from Bedfords, selling Doris, said: “She occupies a glorious position at the far end of Heacham’s South Beach. Once a fishing boat, it was converted in the 1920s to provide beachside accommodation. The property may be occupied as a beach bungalow for holiday purposes throughout the year without restriction.

“The property is subject to covenants, however, which, amongst others, stipulate that the existing open boundaries must not be fenced, that the volume of the houseboat must not be increased by more than 10 per cent without the consent of at least two-thirds of the 10 neighbouring bungalows/houseboats and that no more than one caravan is permitted on the plot.”
