Bidding wars broke out over a chalet in Camber and a cottage in Beckley went they under the gavel at auction on Wednesday (May 4).

Both the two-bedroom chalet at Camber Sands Holiday Park and the Peasmarsh Road cottage fetched nearly double their guide prices.

It was among 152 lots being sold by auctioneers Clive Emson in its May round of auctions.

The chalet at the New Lydd Road park sold for £14,000 – well above its leasehold guide price of £8,000 to £8,500.

Senior auction valuer Emma Attrell said: “There was strong bidding for the chalet at this well-known and popular holiday park.

“Bidders were no doubt attracted by its potential as a good investment or as a holiday home with a wide range of facilities on site, including heated pools, sports halls, an adventure playground and evening entertainment.”

The chalet was sold with the remainder of a 50-year lease from 2014.

The detached bungalow in Beckley smashed its freehold guide by nearly £100,000.

Situated in a semi-rural location at the end of a cul-de-sac, 6 Oak Hill Cottages, off Peasmarsh Road, fetched £215,000 – nearly double its freehold guide of £120,000 to £125,000.

“Bidders could see the potential of the property with modernisation as well as the opportunity for expansion or redevelopment subject to the necessary consents,” Ms Attrell said.

The bungalow was offered jointly with Weald Property.
