A former undertaker's is set to be turned into a holiday let.

Suzanne Bowers has been given planning permission to convert the building off Methwold Road, Northwold, near Downham Market.

In a business plan submitted to West Norfolk council, she said: "I propose to provide high quality holiday let accommodation in a currently disused annexe office area within the ground of my residence.

"This accommodation will provide both short let and week/fortnight stays and supports the rise of staycation in the UK."

Mrs Bowers said the business would bring extra trade to taxi firms, public houses, takeaways, restaurants, shops, and garages in the area. She adds she would not accept large stag or hen parties.

Plans show the former funeral parlour, which closed last year, would become a three-bedroom bungalow, with a kitchen and diner.

The building would be powered by solar panels already situated on its roof.
