Inside EuroMillions £184million winners Joe and Jess Thwaite’s next big move after scooping massive lottery jackpot

LOTTO winners Joe and Jess Thwaite are selling their forever home.

The three-bedroom bungalow in the village of Corse, Gloucestershire, is on the market for £675,000.

Joe and Jess Thwaite from Gloucester became the United Kingdom’s biggest ever National Lottery winners in May

Down-to-earth Jess, 44, and husband Joe, 49, scooped a record jackpot of £184,262,899.10 in May.

The house, which they bought just months before their historic win, has stables, three acres of land and is Grade II listed.

Estate agents boast that the sale is “a great opportunity to purchase a detached property with huge potential, privately positioned with the advantage of stables and just over three acres of land”.

The horse-mad family bought the property so their daughters could have their own paddock.

They have three ponies and the couple’s two young children were regularly seen jumping fences at the back of the house.

As well as the horses, the Thwaites keep sheep, chickens and two dogs on their land set against stunning countryside.

The historic bungalow is part of a former 19th Century workers’ settlement for the Chartist political movement.

After their win, hairdresser Jess said: “Our two children have always talked about going to Hawaii, I’ve no idea why but we can now make that dream come true.

“They have always wanted a horse box for our ponies rather than the rundown trailer we use.

“Just to see their faces when we can make these things come true will be worth every penny.”



The Sun previously revealed how the Thwaites celebrated their jackpot with £16.95 steak and chips — and left a lucky tip.

They could have bought 10,870,000 plates of rump with their record-breaking sum.

But instead of a glitzy champagne bash the couple dined with their two children, pals and extended family at a Miller and Carter chain restaurant on a Gloucester trading estate.

And we what their first ever purchase was after the winnings.

Down-to-earth Joe and Jess spent a relatively modest £38,000 of their win on an understated used Volvo estate.

With their record-breaking winnings, Joe and Jess could have had their pick of any supercar, such as a Bugatti, a McLaren or an Aston Martin. But after going public with their win last month, Joe admitted that he was “not a great car person”.

He said his dream motor was a Skoda Superb estate “because of the amount of stuff you can get in the boot”.
