Stacey Solomon has given a glimpse of her sprawling garden at her new Essex pad complete with a huge swimming pool and idyllic fairytale-esque Wendy house.

The 31-year-old Loose Women panellist revealed that she had moved to the gorgeous Tudor-style Essex pad, nicknamed “Pickle Cottage”, on Monday which reportedly boats 2.5 acres of land.

And Stacey, who shares one-year-old Rex with fiancé Joe Swash, 39, and is mum to Zachary, 13, and Leighton, eight, from previous relationships, has given a grand tour of the stunning garden.

The Tap to Tidy author shared a sweet snap enjoying a cup of tea to her Instagram and said she “felt like she was on holiday” and was “so disorientated” when she woke up in the new house.

On her Instagram story, Stacey walked around the luscious garden which boasts circular borders cut into the freshly-trimmed grass that are packed with daffodils and bluebells.

The English country garden has mature trees which line the huge plot and are dotted throughout the lawn to provide the perfect picnic spots in the summer heat.

And an emotional Stacey added: “It is just the most beautiful garden I have ever seen it makes me want to cry being out here.”

The mum-of-three panned further around the garden which revealed a natural stone wall with a raised patio area and a swimming pool which Stacey dubbed her “worst nightmare”.

And the huge kidney bean-shaped pool was covered in a blue tarpaulin with a gorgeous willow tree hanging over it and pretty daffodils lining the patio area.

Meanwhile a grey outdoor dining set could be seen at the side of the pool while green shrubs and plants created a secluded area – perfect for BBQs!

Concerned for the safety of her three boys and two dogs, she said: “This is the boy’s favourite part of the garden but it is actually my worst nightmare and scares the life out of me – it’s the swimming pool.

“It is not full up at the moment so there is no water in it but it still really creeps me out. I just want to get a barrier around the whole thing and an electric cover.”

Stacey took a stroll around the rest of the garden and revealed she “can’t believe this is our garden either”, adding: “It’s so surreal to think this was the same price as our old house as well.”

The former X Factor star also gave a sneak peek into the adorable Tudor-style Wendy house which matches the exterior of their main home.

Taking a look inside with sons Leighton and Rex, the quaint playhouse boasts diamond-style leaded windows framed with floral curtains, a heater and even miniature wooden chairs.

“I blooming love this thing. I’m going to tap to tidy it. I am going to keep it pretty much as it is but give it new curtains and clean the roof and give it a paint which I am excited about.”

And green-fingered Stacey also revealed her huge greenhouse flanked by two water butts as she excitedly declared: “I might grow some vege!”

Showing the potting tables inside, Stacey said: “My grandad had a little greenhouse so I am going to try and grow some vegetables like my grandad.”

Ending her Instagram tour, Stacey revealed her “favourite part of the garden” which was a magical wooden pergola tunnel with vines and ivy draping over the beams above her head.

“The lady who lived here (the most beautiful kind lady) said that in the summer the plants flower with draping white flowers all along here,” Stacey penned in an emotional clip.
