Concierge.com's insider take:
No, it's not false advertising: These two self-catering accommodations actually sit on the Queen's country estate, providingin addition to washing machines, microwaves, and all possible linenssupreme bragging rights. The Granary, a spacious converted barn, has three bedrooms (each with its own bath), a wood-burning stove in a cozy living room, and a private patio and lawn. Garden House, once occupied by the property's head gardener, is a bit more grand, with a gabled roof, climbing ivy, and many windows overlooking an ornamental garden. In addition to four bedrooms, it has a dining room, a sitting room, and a full kitchen. The rental period for both lodgings is in one-week increments, Monday to Monday. Note to honeymooners and king-sizers: The largest available beds in both cottages are doubles. Note to everyone: Don't expect royal appointments. The furnishings are on the modest side.
