The Sandringham Estate is a covetable address, home of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and their three children - Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis. It's a place that crops up regularly in the news, yet people tend not to know much about the Estate itself. Covering 13 villages in Norfolk, the royal family-owned country estate houses over 300 rental properties, both commercial and residential. It is most well known for two reasons: the royal family currently living there and Sandringham House, a Jacobethan country pile where the Queen spends the winter, and where both her father and grandfather died.

The Cambridge family live in Anmer Hall, a Georgian country house that, while impressive and grand, is somewhat more understated than Sandringham House. The Queen gifted them the ten-bedroom house as a wedding gift and it has been home to their growing family since they welcomed Princess Charlotte, though they do still sometimes reside in Kensington Palace. This week, it was reported that the two-bedroom cottage opposite Anmer Hall has come up on the list of available rentals on the Sandringham Estate at just £750/month.

There are many properties on the estate, spread over 13 villages in north Norfolk, and they come up fairly regularly for rent. Currently, you could move to the particularly pleasing address of 4 Cats Bottom, Babingley, described as a 'three bedroom mid-terrace property with large garden and outbuildings.' In Kate and William's village of Anmer, there is also a commercial let up for grabs, named 'The Old Studio', but perhaps the most covetable of the rentals is Heath Farm House in Great Bircham. The large detached period property includes 'an Aga in a spacious kitchen as well as a large landscaped garden' and would set you back £2.750/month.

Snapping up one of these lovely houses and commercial leases isn't all that simple however, there are strict guidelines to adhere to and Sandringham prioritises those who live and work locally, though they will consider people relocating to the area. There is a no cat policy, though dogs are allowed, and all properties are let unfurnished.
