Take a look:

Tiverton, Devon

£205,000: a two-bedroom cottage

We love this charming cottage in the popular hamlet of Lurley, just three miles from Tiverton in Devon.

And what’s not to love? From the inglenook fireplace to exposed stone walls, this cosy two-bedroom home has plenty of character.

There’s also a big living room, separate kitchen and a sunny patio courtyard with an outhouse that could also be used as a utility room.

Argyll and Bute, Scotland

£195,000: a three-bedroom detached house

Imagine waking up to this beautiful view from your living room window – every day!

This can be seen from a three-bedroom ‘upside down’ house, which overlooks the popular sailing coastline close to the picturesque village of Tighnabruaich.

Inside, the big, open-plan living room is on the upper floor, to make the most of the stunning views, and there’s also a wraparound balcony.

Downstairs you’ll find the shower room and three bedrooms, one of which could be turned into a work-from-home office – so you can spend your lunch break staring at the sea.

Brecon, Wales

£200,000: a four-bedroom semi-detached house

If you’re looking for a quiet village with rolling countryside on the doorstep, and a home with plenty of space, this family-sized home might just tick all the boxes for less than the average price of a first-time buyer home.

This four-bedroom house with two living rooms is spread across four levels! There’s also a big garden and a decked area for summer dining.

The home is conveniently located in Sennybridge High Street, a village in the popular Brecon Beacons National Park.

Lancashire, England

£189,950: a two-bedroom cottage

This cute cottage in the village of Chatburn, near Clitheroe, has a cosy, countryside feel and cool, contemporary interiors.

The home has just been renovated, so you can move straight in. There’s new wooden flooring throughout, new radiators and a boiler, and a wood burner in the living room. Upstairs, you’ll find two bedrooms with tree-lined views.

New Eltham, London

£200,000: a one-bedroom flat in London

In London, you’ll find smaller spaces for your budget, from studios to one-bedroom flats. You may also find slightly bigger properties within this budget that are being sold at auction.

This top-floor, one-bedroom flat is being sold chain-free and is just a few minutes’ walk from New Eltham mainline station in south-east London.

There are double-glazed sash windows in the open-plan kitchen and living room, which overlooks the communal gardens with a patio area.
