A grand Georgian manor where writer Evelyn Waugh lived and died is on the market for £5.5m.<br />
<br />
The author of Vile Bodies, Brideshead Revisited and Sword of Honour bought Combe Florey House in Somerset in 1956 and his family lived there until 2008 when they sold it to the current owners.<br />
<br />
In Waugh's day the house was often filled with his glamorous and clever guests like poet John Betjeman, actors Peter Cook and Alec Guinness and writers Salman Rushdie and Muriel Spark.<br />
<br />
The 12-bedroom house has had a makeover since Waugh's day and quirky style and is now a light-filled spacious family home with a party barn, swimming pool and 34 acres.
