Strictly Come Dancing host Tess Daly is back on our screens each weekend, but when she's not donned in sequins alongside co-presenter Claudia Winkleman, she likes to spend time at her idyllic family home with her husband Vernon Kay and their two daughters, Phoebe and Amber.

The dreamy six-bedroom home is located Beaconsfield, Buckinghamshire, which has been named one of the best places to live in Britain, according to The Telegraph

However, the couple haven't always wanted to live in this exact property as they had hoped to build a new four-storey modern house nearby, but following objections from their neighbours, they decided to ditch those plans and sell it for £1.7million.

Complete with a pool and beautiful garden, their existing home is pretty impressive. Scroll on to see inside their palatial home...

Tess shared a peek inside her beautiful kitchen when she showcased her culinary skills in a video in June 2020. It has a monochrome colour scheme with white walls and cabinets offset by black glossy worktops and stainless steel appliances.

When Vernon returned home following his stint on I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!, he enjoyed creature comforts such as his pink velvet sofa and grey cashmere blanket. A shelf with white candles and house plants add the finishing touches to the living area.


Tess' living room has grey walls with a biscuit-coloured L-shaped sofa. Another seating area can be seen behind her, which leads into the kitchen.

It's decorated with wooden floors, and features a grey sofa with yellow and white cushions and one black and white polka dot style. The windows are designed with thin black frames, and Tess keeps two mini topiary trees in white pots on the window sills.

In the garden, Tess and Vernon have their very own vegetable patch. She shared a photo on Instagram and captioned it, "We made a tiny ‘experimental’ vegetable plot and plated these at the start of lockdown, and am now chuffed to bits as the first raspberries and strawberries have just made an appearance.

"Been making a conscious effort to boost the old wellbeing by staying positive and engaged in enriching activities and it feels good growing stuff."
