Lily Allen Wants Festival Life

Lily Allen wants to build a country house in Glastonbury.

The 'Fear' singer has been a regular at the Somerset town's famous music festival since she was a child, and now wants to build a house nearby - with a tent built on the side.

Lily told Q magazine: "My plan is to build a yurt on to the side of my country house.

"You have the house for traditional living and, of course, running hot water and toilets. But the yurt is full of old Moroccan rugs where you hang out.

"I want to feel like I'm at Glastonbury all year round, with a few home comforts next door."

A yurt is a felt-covered, wood lattice-framed portable sleeping structure traditionally used by nomads in Central Asia.

Rather than buying a pristine property in South West England, the 24-year-old Londoner wants to build a house from scratch or adapt some barn buildings, and has hired a property expert to find the perfect project for her.

Lily will be enlisting the help of her builder boyfriend Sam Cooper on the project, saying: "He is in the construction business so will be able to tell me when my dreams are unworkable."

Lily bought a yurt to stay in before she was due to perform at the Oxegen music festival in Ireland in the summer.
