David Cameron has bought a £2 million holiday home on the coast in Cornwall.

The former Prime Minister has reportedly splashed out on the property in the hopes that his memoirs will pay for the "big mortgage".

The house is near celebrity chef Gordon Ramsay, and is overlooks a beautiful beach beneath the cliffs.

A spokesman for Mr Cameron told The Sun: "David has always loved spending time in Cornwall and has dreamt of having his own place there.

"He looks forward to spending more time in that beautiful part of the world."

Indeed, it was on a family holiday in Cornwall that the Camerons' youngest child Florence was born, and her middle name is Endellion, the name of a village nearby.

The Camerons have already been seen taking deliveries of furniture to the new mansion.


According to the Daily Mail, Mr Cameron makes a handsome living from giving speeches at conferences around the world, but has been spending the majority of his time writing his memoirs, for which he was reportedly paid over £1 million.

The Camerons' main residence is in Notting Hill, and they also own a house in the Cotswolds.
