Talk about a loo with a view! Builder Nick Willan spent £190,000 on a decaying Victorian seaside toilet block - and turned it into a stunning modern holiday home for his wife as an anniversary present.

The building, which sits on the seafront in Sheringham, Norfolk, cost £104,000 and Nick, 56, spent a further £85,000 renovating it.

He turned the block into a luxury two-storey home, featuring two ensuite bedrooms and, three years after buying it, he presented it to his wife as an anniversary gift.

Mr Willan told the Daily Mail: "My wife thought I was bleeding mad when I bought it, but she is chuffed now. When I saw it I said it would be a very beautiful spot just to look out onto the sea. You have to pinch yourself to be honest."

He added: "The locals all think it is incredible too, and I think it puts a lot of smiles on people's faces."
