It was built in the 1840s, was once the home of the great Victorian Diva Madam Adelina Juana Maria Patti, and is said to be one of the most haunted places in Wales.

Craig y Nos Castle, a 40-bed gothic extravaganza in the Brecon Beacons, is for sale with an asking price of £1.5 million (which wouldn’t get you a semi in some parts of London.)

Craig y Nos Castle as used in Dr Who

The castle was used as a location for the 2005 episode of Dr Who (the Victorian werewolf pastiche  Tooth And Claw)  – and you can see why.

The scenery is ruggedly beautiful, the interiors are lavishly ornate and the place comes with its own opera house – a 150 seat theatre with a panelled ceiling, fluted Corinthian columns and a floor that can be tilted downwards towards the stage to form a raked auditorium.

An opera stage. Every home should have one.

What? An impressive and sizeable Grade II listed chapel  in the free Gothic style with winged stair towers and curved plastered internal ceilings.

It comes with the original pews, pulpit, and organ, and a large galleried first floor … and we’re still wondering if that asking price is some kind of mistake (it’s not, though).

You could, with appropriate permission, turn it into an amazing home. Would also be a  great starter HQ for a cash-strapped new religion.

Where? Cwmgors, Ammanford, Carmarthenshire

How much? OIRO £30,000

The number of court orders to evict tenants has risen by 9% in the last year, while the number of tenants in severe rental arrears is up by 13%.

According to new research by Templeton LPA, which acts as a receiver of rents for lenders when landlords have defaulted on BTL loans, 74,492 tenants in England and Wales are in severe arrears – a 13% increase compared to the same time last year.

This also represents an increase of 4% compared to 71,483 in the previous quarter.

However, while the numbers are up, this still represents just 2.1% of all properties in the private rental sector in England and Wales.

And despite tenant difficulties, buy-to-let mortgage arrears cases fell by 12% in the last year.
