Gatcombe Park is the private country estate of Princess Anne, the daughter of the British Queen Elizabeth II, in Gloucestershire. The estate is located between the villages of Minchinhampton and Avening, about 8 km south of the town of Stroud and about 170 km west of London. The estate of Princess Anne's brother, Prince Charles, Highgrove House, is located only about 10 km south.

His son, the former British Home Secretary, Lord Butler, inherited Gatcombe Park and kept it until 1976 in his possession. The house and the associated end farm was then bought by Queen Elizabeth II for Princess Anne and her husband Mark Phillips. On the site there are several buildings.

After renovations, the couple moved into Gatcombe Park in November 1977. The main house has five large and four small bedrooms, four reception rooms, a library, a billiard room, a winter garden and staff rooms. 1978 Aston adjacent farm was bought, so that the entire area now includes 3 km ², of which 0.8 km ² of forest are.
