The couple, who currently live in a £31.5 million house in central London with their four children, Brooklyn, 16, Romeo, 13, Cruz, 10, and Harper, four, are said to have recently viewed Amberley House, a six-bedroom manor, in Gloucestershire, England and have been spotted in nearby Stroud on two occasions.

Jane Bandy, who runs Amberley Inn, told local news site the Western Daily Press: "There have been a couple of people in who have said about it. The fact that they were seen in Nailsworth adds fuel to the fire. They haven't popped in for a pint just yet though."

Another villager added: "Everyone's talking about it - it's quite a place and they have been seen around this area."

Built in 1640, the sprawling rural retreat sits on 22 acres and features six reception rooms, horse stables, an infinity swimming pool and tennis court, as well as a two-bedroom guesthouse on the grounds.

The pair, who have an estimated fortune of £210 million and used to own a countryside mansion famously dubbed Beckingham Palace in Hertfordshire, first sparked speculation they were house-hunting in the area after posing for photographs with fans while visiting nearby Nailsworth last month.

The British fashion designer, 41, and the retired footballer, 40, moved back to the UK from Los Angeles in early 2013.
