Guy Ritchie is ‘building a holiday camp on his £9 million country estate for rich guests to use during shooting parties’
Guy Ritchie is reportedly building a holiday camp on his £9 million Ashcombe Estate in Wiltshire.
According to reports, the director, 51, has plans to build luxury cabins that his celebrity pals and wealthy guests can stay in during their shooting parties on his land.
The filmmaker has already hosted friends like David Beckham and Robert Downey Jr for clay pigeon shooting events, but with the new build his guests will be allowed to stay overnight.

According to The Sun, Guy is keen to build four luxury cabins that will be situated at the edge of his two lakes which he was given permission to build in 2018.
It was also claimed that Guy’s proposal also asks for a license to test out his ‘container-based cabins.’
The properties, which will allegedly be complete with a shower and bed, will also feature his gas-burning ‘Ritchie Firetable’.
MailOnline has contacted Guy’s representatives for comment.

A previous planning application obtained by The Sun saw the filmmaker ask for permission to host shooting parties on his 1,200 acre estate.
Guy is said to have written: ‘A day on a premium estate now costs more than £15,000 and for that the standard of accommodation, food, game condition, the quality and variety of drives needs to be of an ever increasing standard.’
He already reportedly runs a brewery on his land, and his new request will see him ‘compete locally and nationally’ to provide a luxury location for shooting parties.
Guy first bought the property with ex-wife Madonna in 2001 during their marriage, and he kept the estate as part of their divorce settlement seven years later.

Under the terms of their divorce he reportedly got around $92 million, which also included the Punchbowl pub in Mayfair, London that they owned together.
The Sherlock Holmes director and singer share son Rocco, 19, over whom they waged a bitter custody battle which ended in 2016.
It ended with Rocco being allowed to live in the UK with his father, a director whose films include Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels.
During their eight year marriage Madonna adopted David Banda, and after they split she adopted Mercy James and twins Stelle and Estere, she also shares 23-year-old daughter Lourdes with ex Carlos Leon.
