Wood Farm is a modest cottage set in a secluded corner of the Sandringham Estate in Norfolk, England. It is sometimes used by members of the British Royal Family.[1]

Prince John, the youngest son of George V, resided at Wood Farm from 1917 until his death there in 1919.[2] The Duke of Edinburgh occasionally stays there during shooting weekends and shooting parties on the estate. The younger royals have several times held private parties at Wood Farm. Divorced spouses of royals such as Sarah, Duchess of York are often put up at Wood Farm during holiday periods so they can be close to royal children without officially being at the Queen’s festive holiday celebrations at Sandringham House.[3]

Since his retirement, the Duke of Edinburgh has been living at Wood Farm.
