If you’ve always dreamed of living in a castle, this is about as close as you could get to your wish coming true. At the princely sum of £550,000, you could buy your very own Grade II-listed stately home in the Cotswolds, which is the UK’s smallest castle.
You’ll need to get your offer in quick for this property in the scenic village of Long Compton in Warwickshire – despite the fact it’s only got one bedroom, the novelty factor has made this property very popular indeed.
The cute Molly’s Lodge used to be the gatehouse of the Weston Park estate, but now it’s a standalone mini castle in its own right. For just over half a million pounds, you’ll also get half an acre of land, beautifully landscaped gardens and also a timber-clad building called Molly’s Mews.
It’s pretty cosy at just 73 square metres, but it has a character in abundance – enjoy drinking a late-night tipple in front of your very own grand fireplace, before reclining to the bedroom up a stylish spiral staircase. It’s still got all the mod-cons, including a well-equipped contemporary kitchen, while Molly’s Mews offers an annexe, home office and space for your obligatory classic car or two.
