With the Royal wedding fast approaching, there’s no better way to celebrate than a vacation where you can feel like royalty too.
The United Kingdom is filled with beautiful castles and gardens. Originally built to keep your enemies out while protecting the safety and comfort of those within, these castles have now luxury retreats, capturing the hearts of heritage lovers and welcoming travellers from all around the world.
Crossbasket Castle –
Located in Scotland on a 25 minutes’ drive from Glasgow, this castle hotel is the perfect location to come and rest in the proximity of a vibrant city. Each staircase and rising tower here hides a piece of history. Surrounded by nature, the hotel offers its guests numerous activities such as golfing, fishing, relaxing nature walks and hiking. The hotel also features 9 breath-taking suites each named in honour of a historical custodian and individually decorated in a classical style.
Inverlochy Castle –
Nestled at the foothills of Scotland’s highest mountain – Ben Nevis -, only 3 hours’ drive away from Edinburgh, this castle hotel is surrounded by rich history and breath-taking landscapes such as the falls at Glen Nevis, the monument at Glenfinnan and the mountains of Glencoe. Queen Victoria herself admitted to the beauty of the area, writing in her diaries that she never saw ‘a lovelier or more romantic spot’.
Renowned for being the finest country house hotel in Scotland, the estate regularly welcomes distinguished guests. Charlie Chaplin was the castle’s first celebrity guest and since then the hotel has hosted a long list of well-known people, including Robert Redford, Sean Connery, Elton John, Barbara Cartland, Anthony Hopkins and Mel Gibson.
You can experience the comfort of Inverlochy Castle in our Scotland Castles, Loch Ness and Whisky Trails tour or the Bonnie Scotland tour. Both feature the natural beauty of this proud country, historic attractions and accommodation in 5-star hotels.
Bovey Castle –
Located in south-west England, in the heart of the Dartmoor National Park, this 5-star resort is set in acres of beautiful countryside and rolling valleys. Build in 1907, the large mansion was transformed into a hotel in the 1930s. Featuring individually-designed bedrooms, estate lodges, renowned restaurants and an extensive spa centre, this is one of the premier hotels in England.
