An old-fashioned pub in a north Norfolk village has been put up for sale.

The Vernon Arms in Southrepps near Cromer, is on the market for £895,000.

North Norfolk District Council has given planning permission to turn part of the first floor of the Grade-II listed building into a holiday flat, in addition to two holiday lets in the grounds of the pub.

The listing on Rightmove says it is "an exceptional and highly profitable owner operated freehouse".

The pub, which has three dining areas and seating for 90 guests, was formed from three terraced cottages and opened in the mid 19th century. Since then it has been refurbished and extended.

ACV-listed pubs cannot be demolished or converted into shops or other businesses without planning permission.
