Picturesque cottage that featured in The Vicar of Dibley is now a £2,000-a-month rental 

A picturesque cottage that featured in TV comedy The Vicar of Dibley as the home of one of its much-loved characters is now available to rent.

Windmill Cottage in the picture-postcard village of Turville, Buckinghamshire, was the home of stuttering parish councillor Jim Trott, played by Trevor Peacock, in the BBC sitcom.

The St Mary the Virgin Church which is directly opposite the cottage also doubled as Dibley’s St Barnabas, where Dawn French’s character Geraldine Granger was vicar.

The quintessentially English village was also used in Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, four episodes of Midsomer Murders and three shows of Marple.

More recently, it featured in BBC thriller Killing Eve where it doubled as the fictional hamlet of Bletcham, where contract killer Villanelle is sent to assassinate an MI6 agent.

The current owners of three-bed Windmill Cottage have lived there for 20 years but have now decided to rent it out for £1,995 a month with estate agent Savills.

The cosy cottage has just 857 sq ft of space with a kitchen/breakfast room, sitting room, three bedrooms and two bathrooms.

It dates back to 1630 and the sitting room has a traditional fireplace with a log burner.

The master bedroom has views over the church, while another bedroom looks out to the rear over countryside towards a windmill.

The rear garden has a gravel patio and lawn and there is also an allocated parking space.

Alex Lee, from Savills, said: ‘Turville has been a popular filming location over the years, the famous windmill that featured in Chitty Chitty Bang Bang can be seen from the back garden of Windmill Cottage.

‘The current owners bought it 20 years ago and have lived in it themselves but have now decided to let it out.

‘The cottage has been really beautifully finished to a nice standard. It would be ideal for someone wanting a pretty holiday or weekend home, or for a professional couple commuting.

‘Turville is gorgeous, very idyllic, with the beautiful old church that featured in The Vicar of Dibley and lots of beautiful period character homes.

‘Houses there don’t often come up to rent or to buy, because it’s the kind of place people move to and don’t move away for some time so this is a rare opportunity.’

In Chitty Chitty Bang Bang Cobstone Windmill is the home of Dick Van Dyke’s character Caractacus Potts and his family.
