York Cottage

York Cottage is a house in the grounds of the Sandringham Estate.[1] In 1893 it was given by the future King Edward VII, then the Prince of Wales, as a wedding gift to his son Prince George, the Duke of York (later King George V),[1] who lived there with his wife, the future Queen Mary, after their marriage.[2] Five of the couple's six children were born there.[1] Today, York Cottage is the Estate Office for Sandringham; holiday accommodation and flats for estate employees also occupy part of the building.[2]
