A two-bedroom holiday home on the coast is the ideal way to enjoy the heatwave this summer.

And there is one for sale in Britain’s most easterly town of Lowestoft, which boasts stunning sea views.

The holiday-let for sale on Lowestoft’s The Street can be used all year-round, with the existing owners using it as a holiday home only for themselves rather than renting it out.

This two-bedroom park home in Lowestoft, Suffolk, is on the market for £140,000

However, the park home could prove an attractive investment. Rents from other homes in the park reach £90 a night in low season and up to £250 a night in peak summer season, according to estate agents.

Holiday homes can qualify for some generous tax reliefs, with there being a number of tax exemptions and reliefs that would not normally be available elsewhere to buy-to-let investors.

MailOnline Property expert Sarah Beeny said: ‘I chose this property because it’s a beautiful holiday home that would make an incredible investment. 

‘It’s in such a beautiful place and would be ideal for someone looking for a holiday home that they can rent out when they’re not using it.

‘By doing this, the new owner could use the money made from renting out the property to pay off the mortgage on it – all while being able to enjoy regular, year-round holidays there too.’

‘It’s also the perfect place to get away from it all and combines space, functionality and a great location.’

Sarah said: ‘This room is perfect for both entertaining and family living, and I Iove how the French doors open onto the large veranda over-looking the sea – it’s the perfect place to sit and eat dinner or have a drink.

‘And the views. Wow. They are simply stunning, and the large windows and glass doors make the space appear much bigger.’

Sarah said: ‘It’s important to consider the amount of space you need. Luckily, this master bedroom is much bigger than you would usually expect to find and can comfortably provide enough space for you and all of your belongings.’

The second bedroom is also well proportioned and neutrally decorated. It has a loft hatch, which leads to a large loft storage loft.

Sarah concluded: ‘This veranda is incredible and the current owners have really made the most of it. It currently houses a hot tub, large outdoor corner sofa and an eight-seater table, so it’s pretty huge. It’s a really unique selling point.

‘All-in-all, this is a truly great holiday home, with wonderful sea views in a lovely town.’
