From a granary building ripe for development and a former signal box, to a converted school and a holiday rental nestled in ancient Caledonian forest, these tiny homes have charm and character in abundance. 

1. Two-bed house, Sevenoaks, £935,000

Two-bed house, Sevenoaks, £935,000

This Grade II-listed lodge on the edge of Sevenoaks is quintessentially English. It oozes historical charm: a quirky octagonal footprint, walls made of locally-quarried ragstone, exposed beams, multi-pane sash windows with fitted shutters, and a central chimney stack.

Once home to the gatekeeper of Montreal Park, it’s now fully modernised with a sensitive extension that houses an open-plan kitchen and dining room, utility room and shower room.

The lodge comes with a detached garage and off-road parking nearby. Located less than a mile from Sevenoaks train station, it is “a commuter’s dream”, says the selling agent.

2. One-bed house, Ross-on-Wye, £390,000

One-bed house, Ross-on-Wye, £390,000

Now this is definitely not a run-of-the-mill home! Built in 1833 alongside Ross-on-Wye’s mock Gothic town walls, the Gazebo Tower is described by the selling agent as a ‘local icon’ and ‘an absolute one-off’. It’s hard to disagree.

There’s a room on each of the three floors: kitchen, sitting room, and a bedroom and bathroom. Plus, a roof terrace with enviable views of the town, River Wye and the rolling Herefordshire countryside. 

One-bed house, Ross-on-Wye, £390,000 - interior

Despite its chilly-looking exterior, its interiors are bright and modern. You’ll have to get creative to fit your furniture into the circular footprint though.

The Grade II-building stands at the heart of the Herefordshire town.

3. One-bedroom house, Peterborough, £290,000

One-bedroom house, Peterborough, £290,000

Embrace the unusual layout of this converted signal box! You’ll find the lounge on the first floor, presumably to make the most of the building’s design and rural setting.

Windows run along the length of the first floor, providing bright and airy rooms and top-notch views of the south-facing garden and countryside beyond.

This unusual property is close to two golf courses and, according to the listing’s map view, Rosebay Naturist Camping and Caravan Park.

4. One-bed house, Eglwyswrw, Pembrokeshire, £250,000

One-bed house, Eglwyswrw, Pembrokeshire, £250,000

If you’re keen on symmetry, then you’ll like this quaint Grade II-listed cottage. It has a symmetrical façade finished in black and white render with chimneys at either end.

Gorllan has simple rustic charm in spades. Deep stone walls, sash windows, exposed original timber beams, timber floors, and a stone inglenook fireplace, now home to a racing green range cooker.

One-bed house, Eglwyswrw, Pembrokeshire, £250,000 - internal

The 18th century building is tucked away behind the church in the heart of the village. Pembrokeshire’s picturesque coastline, the Preseli Mountains and Gwaun Valley are all on the doorstep. This is the kind of place where you can kick back and enjoy a gentle pace of life.

5. One-bed house, Shoeburyness, £300,000

One-bed house, Shoeburyness, £300,000

Time to go back to the classroom at this home! The striking building dates back to 1886 and was once part of the original Hinguar School. Today, it has been transformed into a contemporary living space. 

Several historical features remain, such as dramatic full-height windows and wonderful 17 ft-high ceilings. 

One-bed house, Shoeburyness, £300,000 - interior

But with underfloor heating, a mezzanine level with a glass and steel balustrade, a high-gloss kitchen, and an electric fireplace with LED flame, this home is far from Victorian in style. Thank goodness for that.

6. Two-bed house, Norwich, £550,000

Two-bed house, Norwich, £550,000

This pretty Hobbit House-esque home is the only surviving lodge to the now-demolished Burlingham Hall, reportedly the seat of the Burroughes family.

With its immaculately thatched roof, sturdy oak frame, and idyllic setting nestled among tall trees, we’re smitten with it.

Two-bed house, Norwich, £550,000 - interior

This cosy home has been thoughtfully restored with fresh, modern interiors. It has an open-plan living room with dual-facing wood-burning stove, kitchen and a striking garden room.

And the sunny terrace looks hard to resist. It would make “a wonderful holiday home let”, says the selling agent.

7. Two-bed house, Strathcarron, £375,000

Two-bed house, Strathcarron, £375,000

If the great outdoors is your bag, then Cedar Lodge in the Scottish Highlands could be right up your street.

Tucked into the hillside amid ancient Caledonian forest, this property makes the most of its majestic setting. There’s a triple-aspect, open-plan kitchen, dining and sitting room with French doors that open onto a balcony and floor-to-ceiling windows. 

Two-bed house, Strathcarron, £375,000 - interior

Where better to dine al fresco than on that timber decking, looking out towards Beinn Eighe, Britain's first National Nature Reserve?

It’s perhaps no surprise that Cedar Lodge has been run as a holiday let for many years.

8. One-bed barn conversion, Wick, £65,000

One-bed barn conversion, Wick, £65,000

For £65,000, you can snap up this B Listed old granary building dating back to the 18th century.

Situated in a small coastal village in the very far north of Scotland, it faces straight out onto the North Sea. Talk about getting away from it all!

One-bed barn conversion, Wick, £65,000

This historic building may look a little forlorn right now but it’s ripe for development. It’s listed for sale as a one-bedroom barn conversion but it could also suit “a host of other possibilities, subject to all the necessary consents”, according to the selling agent. 

Time to roll up your sleeves and give this property a new lease of life…
