Inside Gatcombe Park: The 730-acre estate where Princess Anne resides


Princess Anne, the only daughter of Queen Elizabeth II, lives at Gatcombe Park Estate.

The huge area sits between Minchinhampton and Avening in Gloucestershire.

The manor house itself contains five main bedrooms, four secondary bedrooms, four reception rooms, a library, a billiard room and a conservatory.

Princess Anne has stayed at Gatcombe Park for almost five decades, since her mother Queen Elizabeth II purchased it in 1976.

The estate is grand but stylish.


A photograph of Princess Anne at Gatcombe Park was released last August especially to mark Princess Anne’s 70th birthday and tweeted by the Royal Family’s official account.

Photographer John Swannell captured the royal on a beautiful, elegant rose gold armchair.

The floor design was stone and in the corner of the photograph there appears to be an artwork representing a king.

Another official tweet showed pictures of Princess Anne at her home with a horse and pigs.

When she guest-edited an issue of Country Life magazine in July 2020, the publication took to Instagram to say: “Her passion for the countryside shines through with every feature.”

During the national lockdown last year, Princess Anne and her husband were photographed in their living room.

It boasted striking lime green curtains and had a cosy feel, with a lamp set up by the sofa.

Ever family-orientated, a photograph of her and her brother Prince Charles was perched on a nearby table.
