Highgrove House

Highgrove House is the family residence of the Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall. It lies southwest of Tetbury in Gloucestershire, England. Built in the late 18th century, Highgrove and its estate were owned by various families until it was purchased in 1980 by the Duchy of Cornwall from Maurice Macmillan. The Prince of Wales remodelled the Georgian house with neo-classical additions in 1987. The duchy manages the estate and the nearby Duchy Home Farm.
The house is noted for its extensive gardens, which receive more than 30,000 visitors a year. The house and gardens are run according to the Prince of Wales's environmental principles and have been the subject of several books and television programmes. The Prince of Wales frequently hosts charitable events at the house.
