Charlotte Church has put her six-bedroom, south Wales home on the market for £2.25m.

The house is where the singer and her husband, Jonathan Powell, got married in 2017, with the ceremony taking place under a tree on the home's grounds.

However, after years of renovating a house which played such a big role in their lives, the couple have now decided to move elsewhere, giving someone else the opportunity to own the amazing home in Twyncyn, Dinas Powys. We take a look through the house below.

Home includes an 'amazing ancient forest'

The six-bedroom property is a secluded semi-rural retreat cocooned by three acres of beautiful grounds that has created a sanctuary away from the stresses of life for the internationally acclaimed musician.

Charlotte said of the home and its grounds: "There are loads of magical little areas, one being the spinney which is like a coppice of trees, so we got married in there, so that’s a very special, sacred place. Another thing that is quite unusual is that we can access the forest very quickly from the garden, whether you’re going running, listening to music, clearing your head – it’s an amazing ancient forest.

"We genuinely have absolutely adored the house and its grounds; it's looked after us and we're so excited for a new family to move in and take over as guardians of this beautiful place."

Jemma Friday from Fine & Country Cardiff stated: "The Spinney is a unique property as it sits on the cusp of the wonderful village of Dinas Powys, that has so much on offer and a real sense of community. 

"The village has an outstanding local food scene and a range of local pubs and amenities and some of the most spectacular country walks on its doorstep, yet The Spinney is tucked away in what feels like its own oasis. Surrounded by ancient woodland it gives a real feel of safety and tranquillity.

"The gardens remind me of an arboretum – enriched with a huge range of trees, and plants and wildlife – in fact this is one of the main features that brought Charlotte and her family to settle here."

Charlotte 'extensively refurbished' the home

Charlotte has made numerous changes to the interior of the home to complement the outdoor features of the house, such as adding a dining room extension.

A large log burner has been installed in the living room, plus there is a completely refurbished kitchen with a spacious kitchen island, ideal for Charlotte's three children to enjoy.

The porcelain tiled flooring has remained throughout the ground floor, with many of the home's other original features also remaining intact.

Jemma Friday said: "The house has undergone extensive refurbishment since it was purchased 13 years ago, and although impressive in size it retains a cosy and homely feel.

"The design flows throughout the ground floor, with each room nicely leading to the next meaning that all rooms are used. At the heart of the house the large kitchen and orangery are perfect for entertaining – this is a home to host Christmas at, especially with the bonus of the annexe and garden room to accommodate extra guests."

Incredible garden room for entertaining

One of the standout features of the home is the garden room/orangery, which is perfect for entertaining guests, whatever the time of year. 

With plants hang from the ceiling and extensive glazing, it has a wonderful indoor/outdoor feel, while a large roof lantern overhead maximises the amount of daylight that pours into this space. 

"In my opinion, The Spinney offers a new buyer their own little slice of nature and privacy while still being well connected to everyday life and amenities," says Jemma Friday. "I am so excited to see who its new owners will be."

The home has a guide price of £2.25 million and is listed on Fine and Country.
