The recently-knighted Sir Rod Stewart is selling his Epping home of 30 years.

The mansion, in Copped Hall, comes with its own stables, swimming pool and full-sized football pitch.

With panoramic views of the surrounding land, an estate of about 24.8 acres and a Grade II listed residence, the home is being sold by Savills for £7.5million.

Sir Rod, 71, and wife Penny Lancaster, 45, are moving just 10 miles to Sheering in the north of Epping Forest, near Harlow.

The couple are reported to have bought the 18th century Durrington House in 2013 for £4.65million.

This year, Epping Forest District Council approved plans for a five-a-side football pitch at the house but refused permission for proposed floodlighting.
