Rumors have been swirling about where Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan will be living now that they've tied the knot. While many whispered that the Queen would be giving them a house as a wedding present — she does have a history of gifting real estate, after all — for now, it's seemed as if the couple would keep on keepin' on at Prince Harry's home since 2013, Nottingham Cottage.

However, a recent report from Us Weekly suggests the newlyweds might be spending their days a bit farther from the Queen's reach, all the way out in the Cotswalds. The pair just signed a two-year lease on a home at the Great Tew Estate, located about 90 minutes from London. It'll be their weekend getaway as Nott Cott (as it's affectionately known) undergoes renovations, the magazine reported.

They'll Get To Enjoy The Simple Life.

Like Nottingham Cottage, this house has its own name too: WestfieldLarge. The centuries-old estate had its cottages refurbished in the 1960s and installed a sewage system — so there will be no royal jaunts to the outhouse, thankfully — and there's no shortage of things to do nearby. In addition to bars and restaurants, friends can stay at SoHo Farmhouse on the grounds, or they can stock up on fresh flowers, wine, and wellies (you know, for romping around that muddy English countryside) at .

They'll Have Some Famous Neighbors.

Victoria and David Beckham have a country house there, Us Weekly reported, and considering Meghan and Harry invited the couple to their May wedding, there's a good chance they'll be meeting up for dinner over the next two years. You know, if their globe-trotting schedules allow it.

You Might Spot Them At The Music Festival.

Okay, "might" might be a stretch. There's no word on how Meghan and Harry feel about Alanis Morissette, but if they want to sing about raaaaaain on their wedding daaaay, they can do so just a stone's throw from their new digs. The "" singer is headlining day two of the Cornbury Music Festival, which takes place in Great Tew Park July 13-15.

There's Some Discrepancy As To Which Home They'll Be Moving Back To.

While Us Weekly reports they're staying at WestfieldLarge while Nott Cott is renovated, the 's sources say they're staying at the weekend home while they wait on the Queen to gift them York Cottage (which also needs to be renovated). Only time will tell where the couple truly ends up, but if it's York, they may want to burn some sage and call in a ghost whisperer — the place is supposedly haunted.
