Fancy the chance of sharing a bed with Charles I? Well, not exactly snuggling down with the king - but if you stay in this second floor apartment across the courtyard from where Charles was imprisoned at Carisbrooke Castle shortly before his trial in 1648 you may just feel his regal presence.

The King tried to escape but nothing will be further from the thoughts of visitors booking here in the 21st century. As a former service block for resident gentry of the day, this renovated apartment now sleeps four in contemporary comfort.

Walk along the ramparts at dusk and let your imagination conjure thoughts of the advancing Spanish Armada. A more recent royal occupant was Princess Beatrice, daughter of Queen Victoria, whose private garden is now a charming and peaceful retreat in keeping with its original 1913 layout.

Once the gates close to the public, no-one else stays within the castle walls - even the resident donkeys move out to a nearby field. What's more, a day pass to English Heritage's other two properties on the island - Yarmouth Castle and Osborne House - comes with the apartment.
