You could buy the UK's smallest castle for the same price as a London flat

It’s no secret that getting a foot on the property ladder in London can be – shall we say – difficult to achieve.

With prices continuing to soar in the capital, and a literal slice of a house selling for well over half a million pounds, having a place to call one’s own is starting to feel like an unachievable dream.

And sometimes, when we see what our hard-earned cash can buy us in other parts of the country, it can also seem like a bit of a pointless one, too.

Take, for example, the UK’s smallest – but still magnificent – castle, nestled in a beautiful part of the Cotswolds and on sale for roughly the same price as a one-bed flat in Zone 2.

Standing proud on its own plot of land spanning over half an acre, the Grade II listed building could be yours for £550,0000.

The one-bedroom property boasts a bathroom, living room, dining room, fancy spiral staircase and original Victorian fireplace:

It even has its own self-contained guest cottage on site, perfect for hosting visitors:

Makes that tiny one-bed flat look pretty unappealing, eh?
