The couple, who met in 2012 while playing Jon Snow and Ygritte in the hit TV series, are reported to have snapped up a property in west Suffolk for £1.75 million.

Set in the countryside, the 15th century timber-framed property boasts seven bedrooms, a moat, a hard surface tennis court, heated swimming pool and approximately 8.2 acres of gardens and grounds.

The Grade II listed building is also believed to feature a range of outbuildings, a drawing room, entrance hall, sitting room, cloakroom, kitchen/breakfast room, dining room, dressing room, four bathrooms, separate WC, a utility room and an annexe.

If the news is true, Kit and Leslie won't be the first celebrities to move to the county. The pair will be following in the footsteps of big names such as Bill Nighy and Twiggy.
