Inside the £585,000 beachfront holiday home of Man Utd legend Bobby Charlton

MANCHESTER United and England legend Sir Bobby Charlton's holiday home is up for sale for £585,000 – and is just a two-hour drive from Old Trafford.

The 1966 World Cup hero, 81, escaped to the white-washed walls of Tyddyn Barcud cottage with wife Norma during the Seventies and Eighties.

The idyllic four-bedroom getaway, on Llanddona beach on the Welsh island of Anglesey, is now up for sale.

It boasts amazing sea views and a sprawling garden – but the conservatory will come in handy to take in the views during the inevitable Welsh rain.

The peace and tranquility of the property are a million miles from the atmosphere at Old Trafford on a matchday.

But the getaway actually lies just 115 miles away by car, meaning getting to and from Manchester for a game shouldn't be too much of a problem.

The cottage sits at one end of Red Wharf Bay, which forms part of the Anglesey coastal path.
