£1,495,000: model Mandy Rice-Davies sought refuge at Sherrow Booth Manor in Cheshire during the Profumo affair
The secluded home in which Mandy Rice-Davies hid during The Profumo Affair is for sale. The model sought refuge in Sherrow Booth Manor in the Cheshire countryside to escape the frenzy surrounding the 1963 scandal that brought down Harold Macmillan’s government.

When John Profumo resigned as Secretary of State for War, admitting that he had lied to Parliament about his relationship with callgirl Christina Keeler, the media went into overdrive. Rice-Davies became embroiled in the story as a result of her close friendship with fellow showgirl Keeler.

There are worse places to flee than this delightful country house. On the market with Jackson-Stops & Staff for £1.495 million, potential buyers should also invest in Richard Davenport-Hines’s book, An English Affair: Sex, Class and Power in the Age of Profumo.
