But this is no ordinary property, it is a historic Second World War pillbox, which is going under the hammer with a guide price of £25,000 to £50,000.

The pillbox, in Marsh Lane, is going up for auction through Clive Emson Land and Property Auctioneers next month and the property description describe its unique history.

"A rare opportunity to acquire this excellent example of a World War II pillbox, dating back to the 1940s and forming part of the Somerset Coastline and Blue Anchor Bay defences," it said.

"Records show that the building is constructed of brick, concrete and stone, including a pitched slate roof with barge boards below to ensure resemblance to a cottage giving camouflage from above.

"The property may have potential for a variety of uses, subject to all necessary consents being obtainable."
