MOST people would settle for finding the perfect house, but now one family has the chance to buy an entire Cotswold hamlet.

Little Rollright, just north of Chipping Norton, is on the market for £18m with estate agent Savills.

It comes with a Grade II-listed, 10-bedroom manor house and three-bedroom rectory, as well as five cottages, a lake and 500 acres of parks, farmland and woodland.

The only thing not included in the price is the 17th century St Philip’s Church, which is owned by the Church of England.

Savills director Giles Lawton, who is based in the company’s Summertown office, said: “I’ve never done anything like this before and I can’t think of any others, particularly in the South East or in the Cotswolds.

“It’s quite special to have the whole community, apart from the church, up for sale.

“This is a gorgeous estate and heaven on earth. I defy anyone to drive there and not think it’s lovely.”

Little Rollright is close to the Megalithic Rollright Stones, which are believed to be up to 4,500 years old.

They include the Neolithic stone circle called the King's Men, a monolith known as the King's Stone and a group of upright stones known as the Whispering Knights, which are believed to guard a 5,000-year-old burial chamber.

I may be totally wrong, and apologise to Lawton in advance. But Sir you need to get your local knowledge up to speed. I remember Mr Bond and Glympton as such a sale, and if my memory serves me well an Arab Gentleman after him.
