This stunning manor house looks like something straight out of a Thomas Hardy novel... and that's because it is. <br />
<br />
Historic Poxwell Manor, which was used by Hardy in The Trumpet-Major as the main residence of the story's heroine, is now on the market for £3.25million.<br />

The Grade I listed house, near Hardy's hometown of Dorchester in Dorset, comes with 10 acres of land, a three-bedroom cottage and a range of traditional barns
