Now you can experience the royalty – at Prince Charles’s luxurious £160-a-night bed and breakfast in the grounds of a Scottish castle
Prince Charles opened a luxurious B&B on the Mey Castle’s grounds. It is one of the Scottish properties that belonged once to the late Queen Mother, Queen Elizabeth. You may already feel like a B&B heir to the favourite castle of Queen Mother. Here, you get to enjoy her most treasured knick-knacks for the doggies, chintz yards, and peat fires.
A little history behind the majestic Scottish castle
The castle where you get to live Prince Charles’s luxurious lifestyle was bought for a hundred pounds in the year of 1952 after George VI’s demise. Every August for three weeks, the Mother Queen would decamp here, and this was her beloved retreat. It helped in lifting her spirits, and she enjoyed having her meals amidst the stunning views which the dining room offered. Since her passing in the year of 2002, Prince Charles being extremely close to his dearest grandmother continued keeping up the summer sojourns tradition. The castle is set in eighteen thousand acres in the most splendid isolation.
Conversion of a granary to a ten-bedroom breakfast and bed
There are only ten bedrooms available, which are inclusive of two suites, and these start from one hundred sixty pounds a night. It is Prince Charles himself who opened The Lodge of the Granary and converted into a prince Charles royal bed and breakfast. It was launched in May 2019, and now the guests can have a luxurious stay in these converted stables. There are ten bedrooms in total; two out of them are suites with a personal lounge area. You will find an open-fire featuring in the drawing-room. This area is available for most guests out there and provides Orkney and Pentland Firth’s views.
Freshly cooked breakfast and pet-friendly rooms
Prince Charles has picked the furnishings and fabrics of this royal bed and breakfast in Scotland. For anyone who seeks pet-friendly rooms that are ornate as well as splendorous, then you made it to the right place. You get freshly- cooked breakfast with the availability of healthy and gluten-free options. There is an “honesty bar” that serves alcohol to the guests. It is here where guests can police themselves while making payments for whatever they are taking. The Prince is the President of Mey Castle Trust and The Foundation who are thoroughly involved in the project. It is Prince Charles, who is known to give the weekly briefings while overseeing every minute detail relating to the project.
Grandeur at an astounding price
His Royal Highness Prince Charles, according to the Foundation, is trying his best to keep the Mey Castle going while keeping the memories of his grandmother alive. He believes in giving it the best future and driving it forward. Thus, beforethe place was in shambles, he saved it and made ordinary people have a taste of royalty. So, isn’t one hundred sixty pounds an affordable price for such a large- scale resplendence? Yes, of course, and perhaps who knows the menu might include “dishwasher salmon that has been foil-wrapped” besides clootie Stornoway dumplings- the Queen Mother’s absolute favourite.
