If you’re looking for a celebrity hideout, the Lakes by Yoo estate fits the bill.
It recently featured on Celebrity Hunted, where a high level of security ensured that contestants Kay Burley and Johnny Mercer MP were able to hide from the hunters.
This private estate near the pretty town of Lechlade, in Gloucestershire, is also where several celebrities and millionaires own holiday homes – including Sky News star Ms Burley.
This is one of the homes on the 850 acre estate, which it is currently for sale for £3million with estate agent Yopa, although not Ms Burley’s home or one of the TV hiding places.

Neill Challinor, of the fixed-fee estate agent Yopa, told MailOnline Property: ‘The estate offers a number of facilities to those with a high net worth, including the lake, a spa and a restaurant.
‘It is a private area and provides easy access for a weekend away from London.’

‘The views are amazing and there is a huge master bedroom. It is a modern, eco-friendly property with solar panels and heating system,’ he said.
While he admits that the properties on the estate may look similar from the outside, the interior layouts are all individually designed.
Many were chosen by the original buyers of the homes, most of which were built around two decades ago.
