A 1930s cottage in St Neots is to be the focus of a new BBC television programme next month.

The cottage, on the market with Haart St Neots, is to be sold in an American-style silent auction for the BBC's Open House programme.

The cottage, in Great North Road, has two double bedrooms, a large kitchen/family room and is on the market for offers around £225,000.

The show, presented by BBC property expert Kristian Digby, will see buyers given an allotted time to look round the property before entering bids in sealed envelopes.
