It's pretty swanky

Forget everything we told you about David and Victoria Beckham buying this country home - the couple are rumoured to be buying a much bigger, much grander and much more expensive country pile instead.

The family of six have apparently fallen in love with a Cotswolds country estate, which costs a mere £27 million and is also Grade II-listed, naturally.

The sprawling Abbotswood Estate boasts a ten-bedroom main house, plus 13 further cottages, which will come in handy when we go to visit them.

Set in 22 acres of countryside, the home also offers rolling hills, picturesque gardens and even 1,800 ewes, while also boasting 10 bedrooms, six bathrooms and five reception rooms.

The couple reportedly visited the estate, advertised with Knight Frank, last week with their children, taking a stroll around the gardens, which were designed by renowned landscape architect Edwin Lutyens.

The River Dikler, which runs through the estate, offers opportunity for fishing, while in the surrounding areas, there's the potential for a pheasant or partridge suit.

The interiors look slightly dated - but that won't be a problem for the Beckhams, who will no doubt roll out the same team who furnished their London pad with a catwalk, gym and nail salon, not to mention a cinema.

While the family's £31.5 million Holland Park home is being refurbished, they are shacking up in rented accommodation - but could they soon be making the move to the Cotswolds?

If they do, they'll be joining other celebrities like Sam Mendes, Kate Moss and Jilly Cooper in enjoying the private, tranquil surroundings of the countryside.
