TITANIC actress Kate Winslet and her director husband Sam Mendes are finally settling down in the $5.9 (GBP3.3 million) English country mansion they bought three years ago (02).

Westcote Manor, hidden in the tiny village of Church Westcote in a secluded part of the Cotswolds, boasts eight bedrooms and 22 acres of ground.

A local builder estimates the couple will have doubled their $2.1 million (GBP1.2 million) budget to renovate the mansion, which comprises of two buildings and a 1950s extension.

The couple had to squeeze into a tiny stone cottage next door while the lengthy work was completed on their home.
