Want to vacation like the royals? Here’s a good place to start!
Prince Charles has officially opened a luxury bed-and-breakfast, and it’s on the grounds of a Scottish castle. The Granary Lodge features 10 bedrooms, including two suites, and is now open to the public.
It’s located at The Castle of Mey, a property Prince Charles’ grandmother, Queen Elizabeth, the Queen Mother, purchased in 1952 and used as a residence. Her Majesty gifted it with an endowment to The Queen Elizabeth Castle of Mey Trust in 1996, and these days, it’s a big tourist attraction from May to September — last year the grounds had more than 30,000 visitors.
In an official tweet from the account of the Prince of Wales and Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, they explain that Charles’s charity The Prince’s Foundation worked to create the B&B.
The B&B’s website states that each morning, guests will receive a “delicious freshly-cooked breakfast with gluten-free and healthy options available.”
The lodge also has communal rooms with cozy furniture and fireplaces where you can relax with others. All of the fittings, fabrics and fixtures are of a traditional style in keeping with the interior of the castle itself, and there is a strong Scottish feel that mirrors Her Majesty’s great love for Scotland.
And when you’re ready to retire for the evening, you can head to your bedroom, each of which have their own en suite bathroom.
A room starts at £145 per night (approximately R2 600) and goes up to £195 (approximately R3 500) a night for the suite.
It can also serve as a wedding venue too – so if you want to get married in a castle, this is your chance.
There is plenty to do too. It has amazing wildlife and breath taking scenery at various locations, including Dunnet Head and Duncansby Head, with sea stacks and sandstone cliffs packed with sea birds, including puffins.
Sounds enchanting, doesn’t it? You can book on the website: https://www.castleofmey.org.uk/
