RICHARD Hammond has given fans a taste of what it's like to live at his £2 million Herefordshire castle – taking them on a tour of the extensive grounds.

The Grade II* Listed mock castle in Weston-under-Penyard, which Hammond bought with his wife Mindy in 2008 for a reported £2 million, comes with sprawling grounds.

And now, before heading off to work at his The Smallest Cog workshop in Hereford, Hammond walks his dogs around the estate.

In the video, shared on DRIVETRIBE's YouTube channel, Hammond said two of his four dogs had to be on leads – one could scarper down a badger hole, and the other is too excitable around builders.

But walking around the grounds, which include a lake, Hammond showed that he loves living in Herefordshire.

"One of the good things to come out of this whole workshop experience is that it was my intention from the start to come home," Hammond said.

"I've lived here for 13 years and, I'll be honest, I don't really know the place, but I'm getting to know it.

"It has been amazing over the last year to just be able to get up in the morning at home, wander about with my dogs at home in my garden and see stuff I've never seen."

The work at Bollitree Castle comes 12 months after the former BBC Top Gear presenter's new mega-garage were given the green light by Herefordshire Council.

The star of Amazon Prime's The Grand Tour put in an application to tear down a stable block and replace it with a new barn, after thieves struck his country manor and stole tractor parts.

The plans submitted to Herefordshire Council in 2020 showed the existing blocks "fall short" of the horse riding needs of the family.

Hammond also wanted space for this estate workers to park and store kit at the Grade II* listed home.

The new barn would house his ride-on mowers, John Deere tractor, a couple of Land Rovers, kit for horse riding and 10 or 11 parking bars for a car and motorbike collection.

The plans were then given the go-ahead, with certain conditions, by planners.
