A MANOR house used to film the BBC’s Pride and Prejudice is back on the market - with its price slashed by nearly half to £5M.

The country estate was made famous for featuring in the 1995 Colin Firth adaptation - but is now available at a heavily discounted price.

Queen Anne Grade II-listed Luckington Court, which was Elizabeth Bennet's home in the hit BBC TV drama, was first up for sale for £9.5 million in 2017.

Now the sprawling 20-acre estate in Luckington, near Badminton is listed with an asking price of just £5 million.

The historic building is believed to have been built on the site of a manor owned by King Harold II before he was killed at the Battle of Hastings in 1066.

Luckington Court was later extended and remodelled after being bought by the Fitzherbert family in 1632.

In 2003 the property underwent extensive renovations that modernised the estate.

The Cotswold stone house boasts nine bedrooms and is described as a “stunning architectural gem.”

The house contains eight bedrooms with seven bathrooms, all of which offer stunning views of the gardens, as well as separate annexe accommodation.

One visitor said: "Inside the house, it seems that enough of the interior is recognisable so that one can imagine Mrs Bennett receiving gentle raillery from her husband." 

The 150-acre site also includes a range of modern and traditional buildings, including five dwellings and a 17th-century square dovecote. 

Overlooking the Rose Garden is a Grade II listed stable block containing seven loose boxes, tack room, cart shed and walled outdoor manège. 

Estate agent Hamptons described it in the listing as "a fine country seat of historical significance with extensive accommodation, four independent cottages and a staff flat."

It added: "Local history of the surrounding area places Luckington Court on the site of a manor owned by King Harold II before 1066 who was killed that year in the Battle of Hastings.

"Built in local creamy Cotswold stone, Luckington Court was first extended and remodelled in the 16th Century or earlier by the Fitzherbert family, who had purchased in 1632 and continued to own until the early 1800’s. 

"Lt-Col Trevor Horn and his family purchased Luckington Court in 1947; he was renowned in the area for being the first director of the world’s most prestigious three day event, Badminton Horse Trials and remained at the helm until 1956. 

"It has remained in the Horn family to this day. The property saw extensive renovations in 2003 which were conducted in a compassionate way to both improve and modernise the Estate.

"In 1995, Luckington Court had both the exteriors and interiors used to showcase Longbourn, the Bennet family home, in the BBC’s TV series Pride and Prejudice, which starred Colin Firth and Jennifer Ehle."
