A luxury two bedroomed cottage in the grounds of historic Thurland Castle has been put on the market at a guide price of £450,000.


A cottage in the grounds still means you are the 'help', not the Princess, despite the price tag

Seriously. "We live in the gamekeeper's cottage! If I lean out the window I can almost see the big house whose floors I scrub!"

Yeah, but doesn't the gamekeeper have more, erm, fun ?   My knowledge of literature is rubbish

The moated castle belonged to Sir Thomas de Tunstall, who was knighted by Henry V at Agincourt.

Sir Thomas was granted a royal licence in 1402 to crenellate his manor house.



Yeah, I'm trying to get the same thing from my HOA. I've told them I'll kill a bunch of Frenchmen if that helps.

I don't think that price includes sinking-in-the-swamp insurance coverage.

Fun fact: the gamekeeper whose job it is to go around flushing out quail from the bushes for royal bird shoots is called The Queen's Beater. That is a great business card.

If the Thorncliffs can have a little place in the country, why can't we? Mmh?

I can't believe no one has asked this yet:
..."every"..?

Great band name.

It's hardly in keeping with the village's rustic aesthetic, is it?
 
2013-02-01 10:15:27 AM
I hear the HMOat is positively medieval.
 
2013-02-01 10:18:12 AM
Do I think about being a princess? Boy do I every!

That whole headline is a disaster.

708000$ for a small cottage.

Sucker born everyday.

Why wasn't this a "photoshop your idea of a half-milion-pound home" thread?

Subby, did you have a stroke?  Can you reach a phone?  Where are you?

Hey subby, what language do they speak in your country?

I thought that was what Roger Taylor called his kick drum pedal.

Or maybe it's Chris Brown's new title.

Seems Queen Elizabeth herself moonlights as a motel manager. She rents out rooms and cottages on her private estates like Balmoral and Sandringham. Or you can just rent the place out for a wedding.

It seems bizarre to me, because why? It's not like she needs the income. But there you have it. You can book through the Monarchy's official websites.

Equally great would be a business card engraved "Royal Dog Boy to the Queen."
