No.1 and No. 2 Sovereign's Gate

Royal Entrance, York Ave., Cowes, Isle of Wight, PO32 6BA, England

English Heritage has created two lovely cottages out of what was the ceremonial entrance to the Osborne estate (it's still the entrance the Royal Family uses when they visit the property). The two lodges, decorated in an understated contemporary style, have two double bedrooms each, plus a living room with a wood fireplace, dining room, kitchen, and private garden. Your rental includes free admission to both Osborne House and Carisbrooke Castle, plus out-of-hours access to the Osborne grounds and beach, making it virtually your private estate.

PROS

  • unusual location
  • out-of-hours access to Osborne House grounds
  • lots of privacy

CONS

  • no staff services
  • pricey
