David and Victoria Beckham have reportedly added outdoor toilets to their £12million Cotswolds home for their party guests.

The couple have built the al fresco loos next to an outhouse in the grounds of their home on the Great Tew estate near Chipping Norton, according to The Sun. 

The former footballer, 47, and the fashion designer, 48, reportedly wanted to prevent their guests from having to trek back up to the main house during parties.

A friend told the publication: "David and Victoria love holding parties near their lake but it became tiring having to traipse back and forth to the house to use the loo when the drinks were flowing.

"David asked the architect to design the wood-built toilet block behind the wild kitchen."

West Oxfordshire District Council gave permission for the celebrity couple to build a security cabin and a gardeners' store last October.

Planning documents said the gardeners' tool store would be on the southeast edge of the gardens and grounds.

Oxford Mail:

It 'provides dry and safe storage for hand tools and other horticultural equipment' and 'includes a practical sink for handwashing'.

The proposed timber security cabin was to be on the east side of the drive approaching the property.

Documents said: "The position is at the threshold of the grounds immediately around the house and therefore ideal for monitoring access and deliveries."

The celebrity couple also own a £40million mansion in West London, which was broken into last February while the couple were at home, with “thousands of pounds” worth of items stolen.

Mr and Mrs Beckham were said to be “shaken” to the extent that they ordered a review of the London mansion’s security.

They were also said to have feared for their safety after a crazed stalker sent a handwritten letter to the Beckhams' Oxfordshire home telling Mr Beckham she planned to attend the property days later.

The woman left after being told by security it was the wrong address.

Oxford Mail:

Neighbours backed their security plans, saying it would deter "undesirable elements from venturing into our lovely little village" and allow them to sleep at night.

Recently the couple had to deny reports they are selling their Cotswolds house.

The Beckhams’ property is along the same road as the exclusive private members' club Soho Farmhouse which hosted Meghan Markle's hen party and is a well-known A-lister haunt.

The Mail on Sunday reported the couple were giving up their dream home due to increased traffic noise from the club.

However, their representative said there was no truth to the story.
