This adorable miniature castle has just gone on the market

Fancy living in a castle? Of course you do. Anyone who has ever watched any Disney movie probably harbours the secret desire of waking up in a turret.

Well, now you can. An adorable fun-sized castle has just gone on the market – and it might not be completely out of your price range.

The beautiful Dinton Castle is located in Buckinghamshire and is selling for £675,000. Which is no more than the cost of many one-bed flats in London… just saying.

It means you could experience the glamour and grandeur of living in the castle, without having quite as many rooms and hallways to clean. Ideal.

The Grade II listed castle was originally built in 1769 by Sir John Vanhattern as a space to store his fossil and ammonite collection – because don’t we all need tiny castles for our fossils?

The castle is spread across three floors.

Inside, it’s perfectly formed. Spread across three floors, there’s a kitchen/diner on the ground floor; a utility room; on the first floor there’s an octagonal sitting room; two bedrooms and two bathrooms.

And of course, luscious green views of the surrounding countryside.

But, the best feature of this property (aside from the fact that it’s a castle) has to be the roof terrace. Just above the third floor, you can pop up to the roof for truly panoramic views of the scenery.

You probably want to start planning you summer parties now.

The local area is quieter than you’ll be used to if you live in a big city. There’s a pub (yes, one pub), a church, a couple of schools, a post office and a few shops.

But bustling Aylesbury is only five miles away.
