Whether you want to experience a true royal lifestyle on your next holiday, or you simply fancy a countryside getaway, then why not visit a luxury B&B with an official royal stamp of approval?

Prince Charles has officially opened a bed and breakfast named the Granary Lodge in the grounds of the Queen Mother’s favourite castle, the Castle of Mey, in Scotland — and rooms reportedly start from £145 (AU$270) a night.

Charles, who’s also known as the Duke of Rothesay, paid a visit to Scotland last week to officially open the luxury accomodation.

The Castle of Mey is a Scottish property that once belonged to the late Queen Mother, according to Clarence House’s official Instagram page. The estate was an official royal residence until 1996, when the Queen Mother gifted it to The Queen Elizabeth Caste of Mey Trust.

There will be just 10 bedrooms available, including two suites which feature a lounge area and a drawing room with beautiful views of the Pentland Firth and Orkney.

A freshly-cooked breakfast is also included and is “made from quality, locally-sourced ingredients”, according to the website. Meanwhile, inside the lodge, royal photographs line the hallways, paying tribute to the royal family’s vibrant history.
