Nestled away in Norfolk, the countryside retreat was owned by the late monarch and was previously home to her head gardener.
The property is the closest on the estate to Sandringham House, where the Queen normally celebrated Christmas and gave her annual broadcast speech.
The charming home – which has four bedrooms and can sleep eight people – is now available to rent on Airbnb through Norfolk Hideaways.
Prices are believed to start at around £354 a night, but the earliest you’ll be able to stay is August 2024.
The cottage’s Airbnb listing reads: “This charming Norfolk hideaway, owned by HM The Queen, nestled within the heart of her much-loved Sandringham Estate country retreat and the closest estate property to Sandringham House itself, is all about an appreciation of the great outdoors and the beautiful gardens it sits within.”
The description continues: “Formerly the Queen's head gardener's home, as you would expect, the gardens are a sheer delight and provide a superb setting for this idyllic house.
“Garden House offers charming and relaxed accommodation for eight guests set over two floors. There is a choice of super-king or twin beds in two bedrooms (please specify on booking).”
It goes on: “The functional kitchen boasts an Aga and there is a comfortable sitting room overlooking the gorgeous garden, which is ideal for relaxing. “As well as the formal Walled Garden with its wonderfully stocked beds and borders in which the property sits, there is a more informal garden where you can relax in and children and dogs are safe to run and play.”
Buckingham Palace confirmed on Friday (9 September) that a period of royal mourning will be observed for seven days after the Queen's funeral, following her passing this week.
The late monarch’s funeral is expected to take place in the next ten days and the Royal Family’s official website states the period of respect will be ‘observed by members of the Royal Family and their Households, together with troops committed to Ceremonial Duties’.
The statement continued: "During this period, Members of the Royal Family will continue undertaking engagements appropriate to the circumstances. Mourning bands will be worn where appropriate."
The Queen's death marks a monumental shift in British history and the end of a 70-year reign. She was the longest reigning British monarch, as well as the longest-serving female head of state ever.
