All the details on the Sandringham Airbnb owned by Queen Elizabeth
Queen Elizabeth can now add ‘Airbnb host’ to her list of titles: a property on her Sandringham estate in Norfolk is now available to rent. Formerly the home of the Queen’s head gardener, the Garden House is listed on the popular vacation rental platform. The property, the listing says, “is nestled in the heart of [the Queen’s] the much-loved country retreat of Sandringham Estate and the closest property to Sandringham House itself.”
The Queen’s estate at Sandringham is a private country estate, and is perhaps best known for the location where the the royal family spends its christmas every year. In 1977, during its silver jubileeQueen Elizabeth opened Sandringham House to the public, and now people can come and visit the property.
The four-bedroom Garden House costs between £237 and £354 per night (about $271 to $405 per night) and can sleep up to eight people. Plus, pets are welcome, which makes sense, given that the queen loves her corgis. The description says the house is “within walking distance of the Sandringham Visitor Center and the Sandringham Café & Coffee Shop (offering high quality local menus)”.
Garden House is not the only of the Queen’s properties currently available for rent; at her estate of Balmoral in Scotland, where she spends her summer holidays, there are eight cottages for rent throughout the year. However, these cottages aren’t available during the weeks during the Royal Family’s stay each summer, so if you’re hoping to bump into the Queen at Balmoral, you won’t be so lucky.
Yet there appear to be no such restrictions on renting Sandringham. Although the property is currently fully booked for the remainder of 2022, dates in 2023 are still available. See the full list on Airbnb here.
