Prue Leith has lived in the Cotswolds for 40 years, after first moving into a beautiful country home that she filled with character and colour. The Great British Bake Off judge often shared glimpses inside the property on Instagram, and was clearly enamoured by it. However, the star officially sold up for £10million via boutique estate agency FG Consultants in December 2020, with plans to move to a home with her husband John Playfair nearby, for the first time.
As you would expect for a chef, the kitchen of her former home was one of the best rooms in the house, fully-equipped with everything she could possibly need to cook up a feast for her friends and family.
It features an island unit with an oven and food preparation space, while cabinets and open shelving line the walls. Take a look through the gallery to see more of Prue's former home…

The 80-year-old revealed she had resorted to "eating out the freezer" when her book tour was cancelled and the lockdown was implemented in March. Prue sat at her kitchen table to tuck into a Christmas pudding, with a selection of jars, bottles and bowls on display on open shelving behind her.
Prue's kitchen has open shelving with her various ingredients on display in glass jars. She has a cake mixer and coffee machine on the worktops, while various mugs and crockery hang from the shelves on hooks.
Prue loves bright colours, something which she has incorporated into her home. The living room has been painted yellow, with matching yellow curtains at the windows and a vase filled with vibrant flowers.
The living room has a window seat with a checked cushion where her pet dog can sit and look out over the garden.
"Fighting like cats and dogs? Not a chance," Prue captioned this snap, showing her pets cuddled up together on an orange patterned chair.
Prue said she loves gathering flowers and foliage from her garden to put on display around her home. "Almost my favourite thing is collecting grasses, weeds and wild stuff for a summery bunch," she captioned a photo of a colourful display in a glass vase on her dining table.
Is there no end to Prue's talents? The Bake Off judge revealed that she had painted apples onto the ceiling in her bathroom, which she can look up at while she is in the bath.
The Bake Off judge also appears to be a keen gardener, and shared a look at her garden in spring, which has colourful planted borders and a pot filled with tulips.
