Shane Filan lived in a peaceful part of Surrey

Shane Filan is best known as a singer in the pop group Westlife.

Originally from Sligo, Ireland, he lived in a home in Surrey.

Shane and his wife bought a property in Cobham around 15 years ago.

They lived in the Georgian house set on half an acre of land.

This acted as his UK base as the singer would split his time between the UK and Ireland.

Cobham is a charming part of Surrey with a long history.

It has lots of places to enjoy a relaxing walk, such as the nearby Painshill Landscape Garden.

The park is praised by those who have visited as it has 4.5 out of 5 stars on Tripadvisor. One reviewer said it had a "lovely landscaped garden".

They added: "The views from the hilly area across Surrey were fantastic.

"We chose the ‘long’ walk which wasn’t that long as the state is only 160 acres. The landscaping and the lake are very attractive."

One more added: "A lovely place to visit [with] beautiful views.

"The guides available at each spot give a great and interesting view. A lovely walk we ended up being there about 2.5 hours."

A third agreed, adding: "Absolutely stunning grounds, so many beautiful views and a lovely walk from one end to the other. Would happily go back and take a picnic to enjoy the scenery."

Other musicians have also bought homes in peaceful parts of the country.

Gary Barlow owns a multi-million pound home in a part of the UK with "beautiful scenery".

Take That's Howard Donald lives in £4million property in a "tranquil" part of the UK.
