A World War 2 decoy bunker in Essex has gone on the market with planning permission to turn it into a self-contained glamping unit.
The bunker, which offers views of farmland to the River Stour, has a guide price of £95,000.
Estate agents Stanfords suggest a would-be occupier could benefit from “breathtaking vistas”.
It is thought to have been built around 1940 to 1941 when around 700 decoy bunkers were designed as decoy targets for German bombers. “This one was located specifically to protect the local mine site at Wrabness,” said Stanfords. “The bunker, as we understand, is only one of two remaining bunkers of its type on the East Coast.”
Once converted, the “unique hideout with an epic country backdrop” would include an en suite bedroom along with kitchenette and living area. Tendring District Council gave the plans the green light in 2017.
