Hollywood super-couple Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie stayed in a peaceful Canterbury village during filming for new blockbuster film World War Z, it has been revealed.

The celebrity couple, dubbed Brangelina, rested in a luxury cottage in Ickham with their six children while Brad shot scenes at the old Pfizer site at Sandwich for his new zombie horror picture, due for release next year.

The £3,000-a-week cottage, known as The Treasury, sleeps 18 and is available to rent from Canterbury firm Mulberry Cottages.The Treasury in Ickham

Emma Reynolds, marketing manager at the rental firm, confirmed the cottage was booked by the film's production company ahead of the couple's visit.

She said: "The property was booked out by a production company during that time.

"They were rumoured to be staying with us, but due to confidentiality we cannot confirm or deny they were our guests."

Their visit to Kent has led to a number of reported sightings on entertainment websites by excited fans.The Duke William pub in Ickham
