From Velvet Thrones to Gold Toilets, This Buckingham Palace-Themed Mobile Home is Fit For Royalty
Non-royals might not ever be able to vacation in Buckingham Palace, but Parkdean Resorts has the next best thing: The Royal Caravan, a Buckingham Palace-themed mobile home that’s fit for royalty. Queen Elizabeth II herself might turn her nose up at such an idea, but the Cayton Bay Holiday Park mobile home—located in the Cayton village in the Scarborough borough of North Yorkshire in England—allows commoners to live like royalty starting at $210 for a three-night weekend stay.
At about 840 square feet, The Royal Caravan sleeps up to four people with two bedrooms and features the following amenities: a four-poster bed in the master bedroom adorned with crown decorations, chandeliers in every room (yes, even the bathroom), custom gold and velvet thrones, and not one, but two gold-plated toilets. The space is, of course, also dog-friendly (Queen Elizabeth and her corgis would demand it!) and has royal dog beds and gold-plated dog bowls.
In the bedrooms, neutral white wallpaper with brocade-like designs line the walls. In the bathrooms, the toilets aren’t the only items that are gold: a luxe gold mirror and a gold sink gives the room a royal flush. And in the kitchen (butler not included), there’s a light blue and gold marble backsplash and clean white cabinets with gold handles and finishings. In the adjoining dining and living space, two velvet and gold thrones offer additional seating.
Parkdean Resorts released a promo video with a full tour of the mobile home with Queen Elizabeth, Prince William, and Kate Middleton lookalike actors. “If one’s not at Balmoral [Castle] or Buckingham Palace, you might find me here, in sunny Scarborough,” the “Queen” says in the promo. “Sorry Philip’s not here, but he’s out sailing at the moment, rocking the boat, as usual.”
