Lord Nelson's mistress Emma Hamilton.<br />
<br />
A striking Georgian manor house that once hosted the scandalous menage-a-trois of Admiral Horatio Lord Nelson, his lover and her husband is on the market for £4.25million.<br />
<br />
The love triangle stayed at the property a couple of times in about 1801-1802, when Lord Nelson and Lady Emma Hamilton were two of the most famous people in the UK.<br />
<br />
Fir Hill was bought by the admiral's friend and colleague Captain Charles Powell Hamilton, who was also the cousin of Emma's husband Sir William Hamilton, in 1797.<br />
<br />
The house is in a picturesque spot in the South Downs National Park, at the heart of the Meon Valley in the village of Droxford, Hants.
