Two Cottages at the Queen of England's Country Retreat Are Available to Rent
Vacationing like a royal has never been easier
Sandringham Estate may have been on your list of must-visit tourist attractions, but you can also add it to your hotel bucket list. Two of the cottages on the Queen's country retreat—the Garden House and The Granary—are available for weekly rentals. The prices may be the most surprising part of the news: According to TIME, one week in The Granary will only cost you around $935. For some, that's a nominal fee for the chance to spot the Prince William and Kate Middleton leading a royal family walk around the property.
If celebrity spotting isn't your perorgative, here's what to expect from the two cottage rentals:
The Garden House
What used to be the head gardner's house is now a fully furnished house that sleeps eight. The house features three twin rooms, one double room, two bathrooms, a drawing room, sitting room, dining room, kitchen, and cloakroom. The home also includes an on-site washing machine, dishwaster, and central heating. Tea towels provided, of course.
Cost: Around $975 per week (Monday-Monday rentals)
With enough room to fit six guests, this converted barn has three ensuite bedrooms. The living room is anchored by a wood-burning stove and patio doors leading to a small (enclosed) garden. Bonus: This cottage also boasts underfloor heating, washer-dryer, a fridge and freezer set-up, and a dishwasher.
Cost: Around $935 per week (Monday-Monday rentals)
