Stacey Solomon gives a tour of her huge garden and swimming pool after moving into £1.2m Essex home

STACEY Solomon has given fans a tour of her brand new garden after moving into a stunning £1.2 million house in Essex, which has been aptly named Pickle Cottage after her youngest son Rex, who is nicknamed "pickle".

The 31-year-old surprised her followers when she revealed she and fiancé Joe Swash had found their “forever home” and she’s wasted no time in showing off the 2.5 acres she now owns.

Taking to Instagram this morning, an emotional Stacey said: “It’s just the most beautiful garden I have ever seen, it makes me want to cry being out here.”

She walked round to a pool area and continued: “This is the boys’ favourite part of the garden but it is actually my worst nightmare and scares the life out of me.

“I just want to get a barrier around the whole thing and an electric covering.”


The mum-of-three continued walking around the grounds and admitted: “I can’t believe it is mine and Joes as much as you can’t.”

She then came to a gorgeous Wendy house, which is in the same style of the main property, and Stacey revealed she’s even planning a makeover for that.

The garden also features a large greenhouse, where Stacey plans to try and grow some vegetables, like her grandfather use to.


The next part features a row of trestles, at which point the mum-of-three became very emotional.

She wrote: “And this is my favourite part of the garden, I’ve fully lost it again now so had to put music over this one

“The lady who lived here (the most beautiful kind lady ) said that in the summer the plants flower with draping white flowers all along them.”

Yesterday Stacey gave fans a sneak peek at her enormous newhome which features its own library.



Pictures show a closer look at the huge home, which features Tudor-style wooden beam detailing on the outside of the property.

The wooden beams run throughout the country home, with Stacey detailed is "further from the city and closer to their family" in Essex.

The kitchen is fitted with oak cupboards and a large green cooker and gas hob, with tiled flooring and large panelled windows.


Underneath large chandelier lights, the dining rooms looks out onto the acres of land that come with the home, making it a perfect setting to raise her boys Zachary, 11, Leighton, eight, and Rex, one.

A small snug living room sits on the side of the house, as well as a bright conservatory and large carpeted drawing room with library shelves.

Upstairs there are multiple bedrooms, including a master bedroom with a large dressing table space, and a family bathroom.

Admitting the house needs "love and TLC", she and fiancé Joe Swash hinted they may be renovating the opulent property.



She told her Instagram following last week: "So, for a very long time Joe and me have been searching for our forever home, further from the city and closer to our family.

"A few months ago we saw a house that we couldn't even believe was on the market and in the same budget as our house now.

"There were so many signs. I really believe in signs and they were everywhere it just didn't seen real. We thought it was too good to be true.

"We have not wanted to say anything just in case it didn't happen. Today we got confirmation that everything could go ahead.



"I think we just thought for so long that something would go wrong so today just didn't feel real. But it is real.

"The house needs lots of love and TLC which can cannot wait to show it with. But Pickle Cottage is going to be ours and we cannot wait."
