What can you buy for £300,000?

As the bouyant housing market continues to drive house prices up, the national asking price for a home has soared to a record high of £338,462.

According to leading property website Rightmove, this can buy anything from a two-bedroomed character cottage in Somerset to an imposing five-bedroomed semi in Nottingham.
