The Circle Shop in the village of Fairlight, between Hastings and Rye in East Sussex, would be an ideal proposition for first-time buyers looking to run a village shop on the south coast, reckons Christie & Co. Just a short walk from the beach, the traditional village shop has "easy" opening hours and a self contained three bedroom family home with a secluded garden and two garages. Asking price is £155,000 for the freehold. {{PROPERTY }}
