A beautiful village home renovated by Melinda Messenger is for sale.

The Old Rectory in Lydiard Millicent, near Swindon, Wiltshire, was built in 1855 by the local rector, the Rev Christopher Cleobury, and has a stunning stained-glass window on the main staircase. 

It’s cosy, with fireplaces, shutters, wood-burning stoves and flagstone floors.

Messenger, of TV’s Loose Women and This Morning, sold it in 2005, and the next owners lavished even more cash on the Grade II-listed house.

It has six bedrooms and the master suite has lovely views over the gardens, the paddock and the Marlborough Downs.

This magnificent retreat, a 90-minute commute from London, is £2.25 million, through Humberts.
