Bodorgan Hall in Anglesey in Wales: Kate and Wills rented Bodorgan Home Farm, behind the main house
The 4-bedroom farmhouse in Bodorgan in Wales where Prince William and Kate Middleton, aka the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, is up for rent…
The couple lived in the farm cottage with private beach access, on the Bodorgan Estate, the largest estate on the Isle of Anglesey in Wales during “the first years of their relationship,” paying £750 (US$1200) per month.
The Estate is owned by Sir George Meyrick and his wife, Lady Jean Tapps Gervis Meyrick, who is the niece of the Duke of Buccleuch, and has existed for around 1000 years, formerly featuring a Tudor house which was knocked down to enable the present Bodorgan Hall to be built.
Here is the main entrance to the estate:
From what I can find via the British Listed Buildings website, Bodorgan Home Farm is just 50m directly north of the main house, a neo-classical mansion known as Bodorgan Hall (completed between 1779–82, but additions continued in the years since).
Here is the estate and main house with views to the water, and the potential cottage circled:
Note that the estate comprises multiple buildings such as Home Farm, coach house, old barns, sheds, and stable blocks. The couple did not live in the main Hall, but next door in the farmhouse.
“This island has been our first home together, and it will always be an immensely special place for us both,” William said in his goodbye to Anglesey locals.
Until now, the location of their former home has been kept secure but since they have moved out and are creating new homes at Kensington Palace and Amner Hall on the Sandringham Estate, the veil of secrecy has been lifted. Read more about William and Kate’s life whilst at Bodorgan here and here.
Here are some other properties available for rent on the Bodorgan Estate, including a 4-bedroom one for the same price. This is what they tend to look like:
