Englishmen get
chance of home
that is a castle

Have your say

HOUSE-HUNTERS HAVE the chance to live like royalty after a castle has gone on the market for £3m – and it comes with its own moat and dungeon.

The Grade I listed Caverswall Castle, near Stoke-on-Trent, is for sale after property tycoon Robin MacDonald, 42, bought it for £1.7m eight years ago.

Mr MacDonald, who claimed he is selling the castle to spend more time with his family, has spent £1m on renovations.

The 13th century castle boasts 18 bedrooms, nine reception rooms, 13 bathrooms, a moat, a library with a Wedgwood ceiling, a billiard room and an old dungeon.

The 20,000 sq ft property costs about £12,000-a-year in energy and water bills.
