NOS 1 & 2 SOVEREIGN'S GATE OSBORNE:
Nos 1 & 2 Sovereign's Gate Osborne are two holiday cottages that have been developed in this iconic building at Osborne. Sovereign's Gate was commissioned by Queen Victoria and Prince Albert as the formal entrance to Osborne. Although not used by visitors to Osborne today it remains the entrance by which members of the royal family enter the Estate. Nos. 1 & 2 Sovereign's Gate offers modern comforts and contemporary design in harmony with the historic interior. The holiday cottages have their own private garden where guest can relax and soak up the grandeur of Osborne. Once the public have left at the end of the day guests are afforded the opportunity to explore Osborne's extensive grounds including the private beach at their leisure.
PAVILION COTTAGE - Open: 1st January 2016 - 16th October 2016 & 7th April 2017 - 31st December 2017:
You don't have to be a cricket fan to enjoy Pavilion Cottage at Osborne - but it will do no harm if you are. Built in the early 1900s for sporty cadets at the Royal Naval College, it later became a store room, before livestock were allowed to take over the wicket.
Game over! Today, the long, south-facing verandah is the perfect place to sit and agree with Queen Victoria, who said: 'It is impossible to imagine a prettier spot'. She would be impressed by the interiors, as elegant as an Alastair Cook cover drive.
Queen Victoria made Osborne House her country get-away for 50 years before her death in 1901. It remains an extraordinary legacy to the long-reigning monarch and an intimate insight to her character. The Durbar Room, built in the 1890s in recognition of her title as Empress of India (though she never set foot in India) is a tour de force. Queen Victoria was always reluctant to leave Osborne House - a feeling shared by anyone holidaying at Pavilion Cottage.
Guests can explore Queen Victoria's private beach, "We have quite a charming beach to ourselves," Victoria wrote in 1845 and it was here that the Queen regularly bathed and where her children learned to swim. Pavilion Cottage guests can use the beach at all times and usually enjoy exclusive access outside normal opening times.
