As many of us are ditching exotic holidays in favour of a Great British staycation this year, it turns out staying in a caravan can actually be pretty luxurious.
A first-of-its-kind holiday caravan that’s been designed to look just like Her Majesty’s Buckingham Palace inside has recently been unveiled – and it only costs £13.25 per person per night. Who knew you could live like royalty for a bargain price?
Launched by Park Dean Resorts, it’s called The Royal Caravan and features chandeliers in every room, two gold-plated toilets, custom gold and red-velvet thrones ‘to command from’, a master-bedroom four-poster bed with crown decoration – and for guests with corgis, a dog-friendly royal dog bed and gold-plated dog bowls.
Located in Cayton Bay, Scarborough, the caravan used to look a little more ordinary, but Parkdean Resortsgave it a £100,000 makeover to make it fit for Queen Elizabeth herself.
In the bathroom, you’ll see you can park your bottom on a gold plated toilet – which is probably the poshest wee you’ll ever have!
In the master bedroom, you’ll see it features a gold crown decoration above the head board of the gorgeous double bed.
In the kitchen you’ll find another chandelier and even more fancy gold embellishments, so you can cook up a storm in style. Unfortunately, there’s no butler included as part of the stay.
The second bedroom is just as blingy, with another chandelier and duck egg blue furnishings.
The listing says: ‘From the finest velvets and silks to golden touches and a gilded toilet, the Royal Caravan is the epitome of luxury, adding sumptuous style to your next staycation.’
To launch the campaign, the holiday resort has designed an MTV style video designed to look like the famous 2000’s show, Cribs.
In the video, Queen Vic opens the fridge, as is tradition on MTV Cribs, and sits on the bed in the royal bedroom. ‘This is not where the magic happens’, she stresses.
During the tour, we see ‘Kate and Wills’ sorting out the dishes in the fancy kitchen (‘a haven that will turn any task into a fairytale’) and relaxing on the terrace with cups of tea and Champagne, and get a peek inside ‘William and Harry’s room’.
We’re also shown ‘one’s gold-plated lavatory’.
The Royal Caravan is available from £159 for a three-night stay. That’s £13.25 per person per night. It sleeps four in two bedrooms. To book visit www.parkdeanresorts.co.uk/caravans-for-sale/royal-caravan.
