A historic country home with links to the murder of Thomas Becket and a famous Noel Coward play has emerged on the market for £1.295million.<br />
<br />
Slaybrook Hall, near Saltwood, Kent, is where four of Henry II's knights reportedly hid after assassinating the saint at nearby Canterbury Cathedral in 1170.<br />
<br />
And playwright Noel Coward used it as the setting of his 1941 ghosty play Blithe Spirit.<br />
<br />
The six bedroom property's wooden decorative arches are thought to date from the 15th century, with a first floor and Tudor chimney added around that time.
