Prince Charles’ latest title? B&B owner.
Earlier this month, the Prince of Wales opened The Granary Lodge, a luxury 10-bedroom bed and breakfast in Scotland, according to statements shared by Clarence House.
The lodging rests on the grounds of The Castle of Mey and overlooks The North Sea. The castle was owned by Charles’ grandmother, Queen Elizabeth, The Queen Mother.
“The accommodation will be owned and operated by The Queen Elizabeth Castle of Mey Trust, and profits raised will go towards maintaining and operating the estate as a tourist destination in the North Highlands of Scotland,” the statement added.
According to its website, a stay at the lodge includes a “delicious freshly-cooked breakfast with gluten-free and healthy options” as well as rooms with open fires and a view.
The lodge also welcomes children, but no pets.
So how much does a stay cost? One night for two adults runs about 155 £ (or about $200) for a “super king double” room. Prices appeardepending on the type of room, with the “super king suite” room running 195 £per night (or about $250).
