You And Your BFFs Can Stay In This Huge Fairytale Castle And Inside Is Stunning

You And Your BFFs Can Stay In This Huge Fairytale Castle And Inside Is Stunning

Grab your mates and prepare for a dreamy mini break because you can now book to stay in a 14th century fairytale castle and it honestly looks like it belongs to a Disney princess.

Knock Old Castle on the Ayrshire coast in Scotland sleeps eight people with four large bedrooms, a wood burning stove and - wait for it - a sauna AND a hot tub. Pinch us!

After an extensive refurbishment, the whimsical old building - located in the middle of the Scottish countryside - features three turrets as well as a *pink* extension and a wild flower garden roof - where you might spot a grazing sheep or two.

Looking like it's stepped straight out of a fairytale, the castle - which is just a 45-minute drive from Glasgow airport - also features a tower, with panoramic views across the coast, as well as a star lit ceiling.

On the lowest level, you'll find a small keep and living space, with a cosy wood burning stove and if that wasn't enough to keep you snug, underfloor heating runs throughout the castle for those extra chilly evenings.

Meanwhile, a huge kitchen and dining room on the ground floor has everything you need to make tasty home-cooked dinners and brunches as well as a large, handcrafted elm table which seats eight people.

The property also has a courtyard, via double patio doors, where you can enjoy a hearty breakfast or a glass of wine.

And there are two more living rooms on the first floor, featuring a 48-inch television, wood burner, quirky oak beams, floor-to-ceiling windows and patio doors leading to a very enchanting outdoor balcony.

The charming castle features four bedrooms, three with twin beds and one with a super kingsize bed and Velux windows, sleeping eight in total.

It's perfect for a group trip with mates or a family break. And there's no need to leave your fur babies at home either, as the property is dog-friendly (although there is a maximum of two only, at a £20 surcharge each).

There's also Wi-Fi (we're sure you'll want to Instagram it), an outdoor barbecue and plenty of parking. Prices start at £1,879 for a week, with an increase during the peak summer months and at Christmas.

There's also a minimum stay of three nights - although we're pretty sure we will never want to leave. To book, visit the website.

Two words: Road. Trip.
