    Comes complete with mortuary slab. Possibly listing at only £25,000. Fun for the quick AND the dead.

    Gloom with a view: Grade II listed chalet with sea views
    for sale... One catch: It used to be used as a mortuary

    more, with pictures, at DM link above

    And the home of what can be your next gloomy getaway: Saltburn-by-the-Sea, North Yorks (Wiki)

    Dibs on the slab. Many have slept deeply there.

    Naysayers are everywhere these days:
    Mortuary expected to be turned into chalet after being put up for sale (metro.co.uk)

    Looks inviting. Ultimate in comfort, the last word in it in fact.

    As for grumpy Mr Noble in the Metro blurb above, he seems to be missing the point; dangerous thoroughfare separating the chalet and the beach? Well, sir, what better thing then as the building IS IN FACT A MORTUARY!

    I love it, I want it!!! I can visualise the decor. I would use the slab as a dining table!

    A bit of a little tour here - with the view from the slab - along with a history: The Mortuary at Saltburn (saltburnbysea.com)
