Seaside home prices see bigger rise

Martin Ellis, housing economist at Halifax said: "Seaside living often comes with a price. The majority of seaside towns in Wales, East Anglia and the South West have an average house price that is higher than the surrounding area. But this is not always the case and good value properties can be found in many seaside towns in the South East and Yorkshire and the Humber in particular."
Outside Southern England, the most expensive places beside the seaside are Mumbles in Wales, where properties cost an average of £240,899 and Whitby in Yorkshire, where house prices stand at around £211,484.
House prices in seaside towns in Wales, East Anglia and the South West tend to be higher than those in their counties generally, but in Yorkshire and the Humber and the South East seaside living tends to be cheaper than the county average.
