Once rundown shed on the north Cornwall coast in England A rundown shed that spent years covered in gorse and ivy has been transformed into an idyllic holiday let that now rakes in £62,000 a year. The 80-year-old timber hut was found five years ago by an

enterprising couple nestled in wild ground swamped by branches and bushes.While most people wouldn't have given the unsightly shack a second glance, Steve and Rebecca Peck spotted the business potential the hut and its location offered.
Although set on the edge of two acres of unkempt fields, the property looked out across the beautiful sand dunes of Holywell Bell on the north Cornwall coast, England. They bought the hut, that was built in 1932, for £80,000 off the landowner, and spent four years and £70,000 transforming it into a luxury bolthole.
They were able to preserve the 18ft by 9ft hut and deck out the interior with a modern kitchen and breakfast area and a small lounge.
The couple were able to gain planning permission to build a similar sized chalet-style building alongside it which is used as a double bedroom and en-suite bathroom.
The two huts are joined by a tasteful patio and decking area to the front which makes the most of the stunning views.
Mrs Peck said: “The first time we saw the property we had to climb and battle our way through the undergrowth but when we arrived it gave us goosebumps.”
“Although it was in desperate need of some tender loving care, the view was incredible.”
“We knew we couldn't let it slip through our fingers.”
The couple went through a long-running planning battle with the local council as the property is on green belt land and within an area of Special Scientific Interest.
Holywell Bay was used for the filming of scenes in the 2002 James Bond film Die Another Day.
In the film - which was Pierce Brosnan's last as the famous secret agent - the bay doubled as a beach in North Korea.
The couple, who have two children, did most of the work themselves to keep costs down.
The hut is available to rent through Unique Home Stays.
