The village of Shere in the Surrey Hills, is a chocolate box dream, with cute houses and plenty of picturesque countryside.

It also just so happens to be one of the locations used when filming the 2006 rom-com, The Holiday starring Cameron Diaz, Kate Winslet, Jude Law and Jack Black.

Winslet's character Iris had a cottage near the village, and Amanda (Diaz) was seen driving into Shere to go shopping and drinking in the local pub.

The village has also been used as a filming location in Four Weddings and a Funeral as well as Bridget Jones and The Wedding Date.

And now it could be the location of your future home - if you happen to have a spare £3.95m.

A farmhouse in the idyllic village has gone on the market with House Partnership for that sum.

Dicks Hill Farmhouse is a rustic five-bedroom home with a swimming pool, cinema room and seven acres of land.

The period property is far more spacious than Kate Winslet's tiny country cottage in The Holiday but just as charming, boating a number of period features including exposed beams, wooden floors and an inglenook fireplace with an original bread oven.

Previous owners have completely updated the s 3,648 sq ft property, which is comprised of a large reception hall, kitchen/breakfast room, dining room, sitting room, two studies, a basement cinema room, five bedrooms and three bathrooms.

Dreamy house in village from The Holiday goes on sale - but it doesn't come cheap

Outside there is also a log cabin, garage, heated outdoor swimming pool, pool house and stables.

For those worried about movie fans trampling all over the place, fear not as the house is in an incredibly private location, half a mile from the nearest public road, yet still accessible for central London commuting.

Nick Moulden, from House Partnership, said: "One of the unique elements of this property is the setting.

"You drive down a long driveway into the woods and it is set in a little valley with stunning views and tucked away. It has a a bit of romantic cottage in the woods feel, a quintessential cottage.

"The house dates back to the 16th century.

"Shere is a very popular village. This property is on the outskirts of the village, but still close enough.

"The owners have been there about five years, but in neighbouring properties people have lived there for 20 to 30 years, properties like this don't change hands very frequently.

"It sits on the side of Winterfold, an area of woodland with a network of footpaths around you.

"Much of the land surrounding the hills is Albury Heath and Shere Manor Estate land, known as the Hurtwood. It's about 3,000 acres of woodland and heathland that is open to the public and great for walking, horse riding and cycling."
