Hard times? Judge's jilted wife turns her home into a 60 B&B after he runs off with younger lawyer

With its swimming pool, grass tennis court and 'slap-up' breakfasts, it sounds an idyllic retreat for guests planning a short break.

For the hostess, however, turning her home into a bed and breakfast represents a rather dramatic change in circumstances.

But friends say Lucy Mostyn has little choice after her husband, leading divorce lawyer and judge Sir Nicholas Mostyn, left her for another woman.

Sir Nicholas, 53, is nicknamed 'Mr Payout' thanks to the huge settlements he won for a succession of divorced wives and has commanded fees of 500 an hour.

By contrast, his 52-year-old wife has fallen on such hard times following his departure, that she told friends the B&B, at 60 a night for a double room, is her only option to make ends meet.

In an online advertisement Mrs Mostyn details the attractions of the couple's family home as a 'period property with beautiful grounds', close to Hertford.

The Danes 'has been featured in many films and television programmes in recent years, and is surrounded by lovely gardens and orchards and an adjacent farm/livery stables of 150 acres', it adds.

'The house is at the edge of a delightful rural village with a local pub and shop and there are many walks and bridle paths.

'The accommodation available is varied from large double rooms to single rooms, all beautifully decorated with individual bathrooms and excellent comfort.

'The house has a lovely large kitchen with Aga and a "slap-up" breakfast will be provided for those who desire it.

'Breakfast will consist of eggs from our own hens and bacon from our own pigs.

'Pets are welcome and indeed an option to stable horses and enjoy the local riding is available if desired.

'There is ample parking and taxi service or indeed our own service could be provided to ferry customers to and from the local station.

'Use of the swimming pool in summer, the snooker table and ping pong table and indeed two tennis courts (one grass) are also offered.'

The Mostyns, who have four children, were married for 30 years.

But they separated last year when Sir Nicholas fell for 40-year-old lawyer Elizabeth Saunders, whose wealthy barrister husband Mark was shot dead by police marksmen during a siege in May 2008.

There is no suggestion their relationship began prior to her husband's death.

Sir Nicholas, described by friends as 'flamboyant and entertaining', once said the three ingredients for a successful marriage were 'an active sex life, a tidy home and no arguments about money'.

Sir Paul McCartney was a client in his divorce from Heather Mills.

Sir Nicholas earns 172,000 a year as a High Court judge and once said: 'People seem to have a very idealistic and rose-tinted view of marriage nowadays. It's a real struggle.'
