A Grade II listed guesthouse on the north Norfolk coast is set to go under the hammer next month.

Western House, a former guesthouse in Cromer, will be up for auction on May 1 providing an opportunity to acquire a "unique investment" property.    
Recently named by The Sunday Times as one of the best places in the UK to invest in, Cromer is a popular destination for both local and national tourists.

"Western House not only comes with the ideal location but also an abundance of potential throughout the property for either commercial or personal use."
