This pretty brick-and-flint cottage which has gone on the market at Nowton Park, near Bury St Edmunds, has an unusual claim to fame.

Overway Cottage is in an enviable setting on the edge of Nowton Park, on the southern fringe of Bury St Edmunds.

This home was formerly a coach house and stable block, which had fallen into disrepair.

In fact it featured in a Shakin' Stevens' video for his chart-topping 1981 hit This Ole House.

Since then it has been converted and refurbished by a local architect and now provides 2,150 sq ft of well proportioned living accommodation.
