Gatcombe Park is home to many eventing contests.

Gatcombe Park is home to many eventing contests.

Ever wanted to live next door to a member of the royal family? Well now you can! A cottage in Minchinhampton is up for sale and it is located next to Princess Anne’s 730 acre Gatcombe Park estate.

The cottage has its own 123 acres and is currently on the market for £850,000.

The property, called Hazelwood Cottage, is thought to have been a former hunting lodge and originally formed part of the Gatcombe Park estate.

It is built out of local Cotswold stone under a cut stone roof and, according to the estate agent, it has “huge potential to be renovated, extended or replaced”.

The non-listed cottage comes with woodland and sporting rights, with private tracks that lead through the grounds.

In the house, there is a main sitting room, dining room, kitchen, bathroom and store to the ground floor, with two bedrooms and a bathroom on the top floor.

The Princess Royal’s house stables Zara Tindall’s horses and is where she trains horses for both racing and equestrian events.

The house and farming estate were originally purchased by The Queen in 1976 for Anne and her husband Captain Mark Phillips.

Now Her Majesty’s daughter lives in the large manor house with her husband, Sir Timothy Laurence.

Zara and Mike Tindall moved back into Gatcombe Park last year, after selling their £1.2million home in Cheltenham.
