Doubts have recently arisen regarding the economic situation of the British monarchy after Queen Elizabeth II put up for rent through Airbnb, a property of her Norfolk estate, where royalty usually spend Christmas.
According to information from DailyMail, this would not be the only property that the queen has put up for rent, since she has also started offering cheap reservations – for only 15 pounds sterling per night – in the picturesque cabins of her Balmoral estate, in Scotland.
Although prices for the Norfolk house tend to vary, it is estimated that it can be rented for £354 per night next February, for a minimum of three nights.
Airbnb describes the Garden House rental as a “delightful hideaway, owned by ‘Her Majesty’ Queen Elizabeth II, situated in the heart of her prized Sandringham estate and the closest property to Sandringham House itself.”
According to the listing, it offers “charming and relaxed accommodation” for eight guests spread over two floors. “Eclectically furnished from the royal collection, all the furniture and paintings were once in a royal residence.” While the gardens, which are “an absolute delight and provide a magnificent setting for this idyllic home”, offer guests the opportunity to enjoy plenty of outdoor space.
“As well as the formal walled garden with its wonderful flower beds and borders in which the property sits, there is a more informal garden where you can relax and where children and dogs can run and play safely,” the ad adds. .
The announcement comes just a week after the queen declared that tourists could enjoy a discounted break at her Balmoral estate amid the UK’s cost-of-living crisis.
The cheapest – the Colt Cottages – start at £555 and sleep up to five people. This works out to £79 per night for a family of five or just £15.80 per person per night.
The estate has already accepted reservations for next year. Rates are based on a one week stay between January 7th and March 31st.
