A massive safari-style canvas tent that reportedly cost £50,000 has sprung up on the shores of David and Victoria Beckham's luxury rural retreat in the Costwolds.
According to The Sun, David and Victoria Beckham have just put up a tent at their private mansion in Costwolds, England. The structure, which boasts an incredible 45ft long and 35ft wide size, is said to cost the Beckhams a whopping amount of £50,000.
The mansion cost David Beckham £6,5 million
The five-figure price for the glamping tent is nothing compared to the £6,5-million price that the former England captain and his wife splashed out nearly six years ago for the property, which has been a favorite country retreat for the Beckhams family away from the spotlight. Aside from the Costwolds mansion, the Beckhams also own a portfolio of other super-luxe properties that amount to £62million. David, Victoria, and their children - Brooklyn, Romeo, Cruz, and Harper, regularly head to those properties on luxury family getaways.
Hello! writes that the new tent that sprung up on the shores of the lake of the Beckhams' Costwolds country house has an idyllic wooden frame and is shielded by an extension of canvas roof. Inside, it boasts several utilities and furniture, including a luxurious no-smoke barbeque. While the tent is only one floor, it is likely to boast a luxurious interior given David and Victoria's habit of splashing out on luxe items. Victoria, David, and their children can relax in the tent while beholding the magnificent lake, which also cost them £200,000 to create.
The structure is likely a product from Cashmere Caveman Company, a furniture company owned by David Beckham's close friend, film director Guy Ritchie. The Wrath of Man director also owned an identical tent at his property in Wiltshire.
The camp-out was first spotted by Beckhams' neighbors
According to the Dailymail, the structure was first spotted by local residents who dwell near David and Victoria's Costwolds home. One resident even reported it to West Oxfordshire District Council, which has started an investigation into the property. However, sources close to the Beckhams family told the Dailymail:
'There is no consent issue. The Beckhams’ consultants did check directly with the council.'
Meanwhile, a West Oxfordshire District Council spokesperson said: 'We can not comment on any investigations into alleged planning breaches.'
The Sun writes that the Beckhams had already planned to build the tent earlier this year, and had submitted detailed plans to West Oxfordshire District Council for legal permission. The family then was ordered to submit a five-year maintenance plan to show that they will support the area's biodiversity and surrounding environment after they build the structure.
This is not the first time the Beckhams faced objections from their own neighbors. Back in December 2020, people nearby the couple's Costwolds property said that the kidney-shaped lake inside the mansion could lead to flooding and ruin the ambiance of the area.
Beckhams' latest installment comes shortly after the couple were spotted on vacation in St Tropez, France, alongside their two children Cruz and Harper.
