"What a glorious thing to be able to run to the countryside and recoup," she said. "It's a great privilege to be surrounded by greenery, birdsong and hedgerows, and our delightful neighbours. It's so peaceful."

Rose joked that she calls the refurbished 15th-century farmhouse, "the house that Jon Snow built" - referencing her husband's character on the fantasy series.

Kit and Rose, both 34, tied the knot at the stunning 12th-century Scottish castle, Wardhill, which is owned by Rose's family. Many of the pair's co-stars were in attendance, including Emilia Clarke, Peter Dinklage, Sophie Turner and Maisie Williams.

The couple were wed in 2018

Kit opened up about the star-studded wedding during an appearance on The Jonathan Ross Show.

"I rang [the scheduling producer] up and I said, 'I'm getting married and it's your fault actually,'" the actor recalled. "I was like, 'You need to factor in a Game of Thrones wedding by the way.' They have all got to be there so the whole thing has got to shut down."
