The Top Gear star has 1000 acres of land

Speaking about is farm on his own show, he said: "I have had a farm, quite a big farm, a 1,000 acres, since 2008. A man farmed it for me. Then he said, 'I’m retiring'. So I thought, I’ll do it myself, which is the stupidest decision.

The rustic property supposedly boasts six bedrooms, five bathrooms, a cinema, games room, a yard for horses, and space for five cars.

Jeremy is planning more renovations

Jeremy previously revealed he was looking forward to making use of his land with quad bikes. Writing on the Top Gear website, he said: "I have bought a farm. There are many sensible reasons for this. Land is a better investment than any bank can offer.

"The government doesn't get any of my money when I die. And the price of the food that I grow can only go up. But there is another, much more important reason: I can now have a quad bike."
