He listed the property for a third time in September 2021 and reluctantly slashed his asking price to £6.75 million.

When the house was put on then market, Robbie said: ‘Compton Bassett House has been the perfect escape for our family.
‘It is where Ayda and I truly fell in love, set roots as a couple, and dreamed of our future family.
‘Since then, we have welcomed four beautiful children into the gracious rooms at Compton Bassett House, where we have shared much laughter and joy.
‘The gardens and trees have enchanted us with their magic, and on rainy days (of which there are many in England), we have played and splashed around the indoor pool, much to our delight.
‘Compton Bassett House is most definitely a family-friendly house that deserves to have much more laughter and joy within its beautiful walls. We hope the incoming purchaser will enjoy just as much as we have.’
