Adelaide Cottage, Windsor Home Park

dated Oct 1839

RCIN 919766

The garden of the fashionable cottage orné (or decorated cottage) pre-dates the appearance in art of the genuine rural cottage garden. This former estate cottage in the Home Park at Windsor was rebuilt as a cottage orné for use as a retreat by Queen Adelaide, wife of William IV. The fountain in the centre of the garden is surrounded by ‘Hardenburg’ baskets: circular flower beds ringed with metal hoops or tiles.

    The income from your ticket contributes directly to The Royal Collection Trust, a registered charity. The aims of The Royal Collection Trust are the care and conservation of the Royal Collection, and the promotion of access and enjoyment through exhibitions, publications, loans and educational activities.
