Wey­mouth Beach’s three-mile stretch of golden sand with a pier, don­key rides and a Punch & Judy show of­fers the quin­tes­sen­tial English sea­side ex­pe­ri­ence.

Nos­tal­gic and old-fash­ioned it might be, but Britain’s top-voted beach ap­peals to both sec­ond-home own­ers and those re­lo­cat­ing full­time, with a num­ber down from Lon­don or the North.

At £237,915, the av­er­age prop­erty price is nearly half that of nearby Poole, ac­cord­ing to Right­move. “You can get a one or two-bed­room re­sale pe­riod apart­ment for less than £200,000 be­hind the prom­e­nade, although you will pay £500,000 to £600,000 for a pe­riod town house,” says Emily Ashby of Fine & Coun­try.
