Residents have criticised a Hollywood actress over renovations to her eco-home cottage in Mawgan Porth.

Cate Blanchett’s ongoing renovations have angered her neighbours with the noise reportedly making their lives hell due to the “non-stop drilling and banging.”

The Lord of the Rings star, 54, and her playwright husband Andrew Upton, 57, bought the £1.6 million cottage in Mawgan Porth three years ago.

The celebrity couple have since demolished the original structure to replace it with a five-bedroom eco-home.
