Pop hunk Robbie Williams is planning to spend a staggering $3.5 million (GBP2 million) on an idyllic country manor in England's Lake District.

The ROCK DJ singer fell in love with the house, which is located just 35 kilometres (22 miles) from his former Take That bandmate Mark Owen, after selling his lavish London home last month (JUN05).

The fabulous country pile, originally a hotel, boasts nine bedrooms, eight bathrooms, a sauna and billiards room, as well as a massive eight-and-a-half acres of land.

An insider says, "It's a very stunning house - it is very private and in a beautiful location."
