A country mansion that inspired Richard Adams' best-selling novel Watership Down is on the market for offers in excess of £1.5m.<br />
<br />
Grade II Listed Longhills Hall was home to the writer when he was stationed there during the Second World War with the 1st Airborne Division.<br />
<br />
Although the story about a brave band of rabbits is set in Hampshire, after writing it Adams said he drew on his real-life war experiences and based characters on some of the soldiers he fought alongside.<br />
<br />
So this seven-bedroom Lincolnshire manor and the rabbits that live in the four acres of parkland grounds are sure to appeal to literature fans.
