The late Queen Elizabeth II’s Garden House is available to rent on Airbnb. 

The property was listed a couple of days before Queen Elizabeth died, aged 96. 

The charming cottage was owned by the Queen personally, not by the British government. 

The property was gifted to Prince Albert in 1862, later being used as the former head gardener’s cottage. Of course, then, it’s a quiet idyllic spot where you can relax among the climbing ivy and enjoy views of the 200 hectares of surrounding grounds. 

This four-bedroom Norfolk hideaway, complete with the 1980s decor, can house eight guests over two floors. 

It costs £300 per night to rent – but if you want to visit you’ll be waiting a while, as it appears to be booked up until 2024.

The Airbnb listing stipulates that visitors can enjoy the ‘formal walled garden with its wonderfully stocked beds and borders in which the property sits’ as well as the ‘more informal garden where you can relax in and children and dogs are safe to run and play.’

If that’s not enough, the Garden House is only a short drive to the stunning North Norfolk beaches set in the area surrounded by fields of lavender and poppy flowers, quiet country lanes and quintessentially English villages.

The property sits on the Sandringham Estate, a private retreat which Queen Elizabeth used for getaways. 

BGUK_2456033 - Sandringham, UNITED KINGDOM - Just a couple of days before the beloved Queen Elizabeth passed away, the Garden House on her Sandringham Estate was listed on Airbnb. This property was purchased as a gift for Prince Albert in 1862 and it's a private property owned by the Queen personally and not to the British government. Queen Elizabeth used the estate as her private retreat for holidays and hot summer months. The Garden House sits on the estate and it used to be the former head gardener's cottage. Inside are 4 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, and room for up to 8 guests. Though everything looks dated as from the 1980's, it's the closest commoners can get to feeling they're relaxing where the Queen spent her summers. The cost to rent is approximately $400 per night.
