We’re told the average wedding in the UK will set you back just over £20,000.

Now, even with Valentine’s Day just around the corner (Sunday) there must be a lot of people who would think that’s a tad on the expensive side.

Rather than spending all that money on one day, albeit a special day, how about buying a house instead – and have five grand left over to have a rather more sensible, cheaper wedding?

Research by online estate agents HouseSimple.com has found 24 properties currently for sale in the UK for the price of an average wedding or less.

As it turns out, there are four properties selling for £15,000 – and one of them is in Hawick.

2A Allars Bank is unlikely to win any beauty contests, but when it comes to price, it can’t be beaten.

Alex Gosling, CEO of HouseSimple.com said: “They may not be much to look at, and they may need a little TLC, but it does seem crazy in this day and age, when the average UK house price is over £200,000, that you can still buy a property for less than a 10th of that price.”

The four cheapest properties in the UK are as follows:

Grange Avenue, Ribbleton, Preston PR2 1-bed flat £15,000

Jameswood Villa, High Road, Sandbank, Dunoon PA23 1-bed flat £15,000
2A, Allars Bank, Hawick TD9 1-bed flat £15,000

12G Steamer Street, Barrow In Furness, Cumbria LA14 1-bed flat £15,000
