Elizabeth Hurley selling luxury Cotswolds mansion for £6 million

Elizabeth Hurley has put her luxury Cotswolds manor house up for sale for a cool £6 million.

The model and businesswoman bought the stunning stone-built home, called Ampney Knowle, in 2003 for £3.3 million.

She has lived there permanently for the last three years, and over the last decade as even been something of a tourist attraction in the area.

According to The Sunday Times, the house was once a stop on a celebrity coach tour through the Cotswolds, which also popped past Jilly Cooper's pad and Dom Joly's place.

Liz told the paper: "I've always loved the Cotswolds. It has a gentle beauty that never fails to soothe the nerves. I first saw Ampney Knowle on the most perfect June day, a few months after I'd given birth to my son, Damian. The moment I stepped over the threshold, I knew I wanted to live here."

The six-bedroom house comes with a guest annexe, two cottages, outbuildings and 73 acres, and there's a bluebell wood and 35 acres of farmland available separately.

According to the Daily Mail, the mansion boasts some slightly odd decor, including a stuffed alligator and a tiger skin draped over a piano.

For a while, Hurley embraced the 'good life', and even sold her own sausages at Harrods.

But the star now lives at Doddington Hall, a Georgian mansion she bought in Herefordshire while dating Shane Warne.
