Research by a national property sales portal has revealed that a Pembrokeshire town is one of the best value areas for sea views in the UK. 

OnTheMarket examined the prices of properties across the country that were within 100 metres of the sea in order to map out the average prices of the top ten cheapest and top ten most expensive locations. 

Of the ten areas offering the best value for money, Neyland was the only Welsh location, coming in at ninth place - making it number one in Wales. 

The index estimated that the average price of a sea-view property in Neyland was £120,000, including bungalows, apartments, houses and mobile park homes.

Neyland was beaten by three towns in Cumbria, two in Kent, one in Durham, one in Lancashire and one in Norfolk. 

When looking at the most expensive areas, there is also only one appearance from a Welsh town, with Trearddur on Holy Island having the UK’s second dearest sea-views, at an average of £2,000,000. 

Chief Executive Officer of OnTheMarker, Jason Tebb, commented: “The top ten locations are all as you’d expect, places like St Ives and Saunton are well known for their natural beauty, which will always be highly desirable to potential home owners. 

“But this list shows that there are opportunities to own a property with a sea view in less conventional locations that offer a similar quality of life away from the usual hotspots.”
