A £3 million Lake District mansion could be yours for as little as £10.

The six bedroom property is located on the picturesque Lake Windermere in Cumbria and the fully-furnished pad will feature no mortgage, stamp duty or conveyancing

Fundraising firm Omaze have launched a million-pound prize draw to raise money for Alzheimer's Research UK.

Would-be winners have to buy tickets to enter, with the cheapest bundle of entries costing just £10.

One winner will be selected at random and they can decide whether to move into the home permanently, use it as a holiday home and rent it out for the remainder of the year, or sell it and become a millionaire overnight, the Manchester Evening News reports.

The house is a six-bedroom lodge, based in Bowness-On-Windermere, which overlooks the famed Lake Windermere.

And it also has five bathrooms, a wood burning stove and a modern kitchen with a fully-kitted out breakfast bar.

When the weather improves in the spring and summer months there's an indoor-outdoor BBQ kitchen, with a lounge area, log burner, sound system and television.

Every one of the six bedrooms has a king size bed, and the top floor penthouse comes complete with an en-suite and a Juliet balcony.
