Robbie Williams wants to build a ''man cave'' to escape from his hectic family life.

The 42-year-old singer has admitted he'd love nothing more than to construct a hideaway underneath his Beverley Hills mansion in order to get some peace and quiet from his wife Ayda Field and their two children Teddy, four, and Charlton, two.

Speaking to The Sun newspaper, the former Take That singer said: ''I'm planning on a few man caves in a basement. They will be all mine.''

But getting away from his children is easier than constructing an underground cave, as the 'Party Like a Russian' hitmaker revealed he can simply head into the studio, as his children ''just aren't interested'' in his music.

He said: ''They just aren't interested. I played Teddy a bit of my Knebworth gig [from 2003]. I sat her on my lap and told her that all those people had come to see Daddy.

''But she just sat there and then, a few minutes in, said: 'Can I have some cake?' and ran off to the other room. She isn't bothered about the music.''

The need for a break from his family comes after the 'Feel' singer recently claimed he was feeling ''burnt out'' after an extensive promotional tour for his new album 'Heavy Entertainment Show'.

He said: ''I hope I've been OK. And I hope you've had a good time. I'm a bit burnt out, to be honest with you.

''Listen, I'm having the best time. My job is absolutely amazing ... I'm loving my job, I'm loving my life. But I've been mega busy.

''I was in Australia two minutes ago, then Spain then Germany and I've been talking about myself and singing at people. And I realised tonight when 'Rock DJ' came on I was like 'Oh my God, there's nothing in the tank.'''
