Estate agent Knight Frank, who had the property listed, describes Carol's home, Sloblock Hall, as a property that provides "luxurious, barn-like contemporary living filled with light and height with an outdoor swimming pool complex and stunning terraced gardens in a private road".

The 60-year-old star was photographed in her home for the last time in October in a photoshoot that featured exclusively in HELLO! magazine.

Speaking about her fondest memories of her property, she said: "The parties we've had! The best one was my 50th – we all came in seventies gear. Alan Carr, Gok Wan and an Abba tribute band. I had astronauts and red arrows in attendance. Even Alan said that was the BEST party. The number of afro wigs I found on the floor was ridiculous. I love throwing parties!"

Of what the future holds, she added: "I am a wanderer; I've always been a wanderer. I love making homes, but I don't want to be in them very much. I live between west Wales, a bit of Cardiff and Bristol. I think progressively that will become all Wales. Well, soon. I am Welsh, and I love it. I want to spend much less time in London working – that's a decision of mine. I'm only doing the things that I want to do."
