A couple who nearly doubled the size of their country cottage without planning permission have been ordered to tear it down.

Craig and Gaynor Arnold remodelled their Arts and Crafts cottage in the village of Chilworth outside Guildford so much they left only a few original walls standing.

According to Guildford Borough Council documents, work on the 1930s dwelling began in 2011, but due to 'the extent of the demolition undertaken', the council deemed 'the operation amounted to a replacement dwelling'. 

Although a side extension, conservatory and detached garage had been added to the original property, it was a further 'single-storey rear extension, and a two-side extension' that led the council to order its demolition.
