Prince William and Princess Kate’s rarely seen Scottish cottage is straight out of a fairytale

The Windsor home that Prince William and Princess Catherine share with their three children or their stunning Norfolk home may come to mind when you think of the royal couple’s residences.

However, the royal couple also owns a stunning vacation home that is situated on the grounds of Balmoral, a place that the late Queen loved to visit. Due to William and Catherine’s infrequent visits, the location is not only infrequently visited but also available for public booking from April through July.

Details were posted on Tuesday by the Balmoral Castle and Grounds Twitter account, which stated: “Tigh Na Garaidh Cottage – April, May, June & July bookings now available!

“Tigh na Garaidh can accommodate up to four guests with 1x double & 1x twin room,” says the website. “It is located in the center of the castle gardens, in a quiet setting overlooking the conservatories.”

The picture displayed the stunning property’s exterior in all its glory, with a short dirt driveway leading to the house’s side.

The expansive garden was the main attraction of the brick house, which also had five sizable windows and a covered doorway that let in plenty of light.

By the wooden fencing, lush, green grass and stems of delicate, purple flowers were growing.

A greenhouse was seen at the back of the property, indicating that a variety of fresh vegetables are offered all year long.

At the moment, William and Catherine, along with their three children, Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis, spend the majority of their time at Adelaide Cottage in Windsor.

The home is on the Windsor Home Park estate, which is also the location of Windsor Castle, and it takes the family about 10 minutes to walk there from the main castle.

A portion of the land was taken from Royal Lodge to construct the structure in 1831 under the direction of architect Jeffry Wyatville.

The Royal Collection Trust website explains that Queen Victoria frequently visited the location and would enjoy tea in the grounds. Her cherished pet dog Dash is even buried on the property.
