Circus queen Nell Gifford is selling her home. The sister of pottery designer Emma Bridgewater turned her estate at Bourton-on-the-Water in the Cotswolds into the home of Giffords Circus in 2000 and rehearses and designs her touring shows there.

The garden has accommodated the "props" so far, including animals, swords and wagons, but the success of the 90-minute show means Nell and husband Toti need more space.

The 14-acre estate with a two-bedroom main house, barn, head office, stables and workshop, is listed with Butler Sherborn for £1.5 million and could be an ideal live/work space for creative types.
