❓The surprise location❓
Today we are heading to the surprise location where only mum and dad know the mystery location. But when we arrive we get a bit of a fright. Here's Jack's side of the story.
A Night In A castle - by Jack???
We packed up and got in the car ???but we only had to drive for 5 minutes then we where there. I thought I was staying in a little farmhouse ⛺️but it was actualy a humungs castle. ??It was bilt in the roman days wich is a long time ago!! It has 4 towers and 2 wings and 15 bedrooms and a duck ?that you can pat and 7 cats ???????and 5 chickens?????. It is like a farm and it has a games room with a pool table ?and a Dutch game. And in one of the towers is my bedroom and it is humungs. The End.?
Back to me again......
The castle was built in the 13th century and last renovated in the 19th century by a family of lords who owned it. Over the years it has been home to monks, nobles and lords. In World War Two the turrets with hidden rooms were used to hide Jewish refugees. The highest tower is six stories high. The castle is now owned by a famous Dutch painter and an Asian sculpturer.
Every room of the house has been decked out to look like a king or queens rooms. For example the dining room has shields of the surrounding villages (I am guessing) and the bedrooms have the original carpet, furniture and so on. As the owners are artists, the whole building is filled with amazing sculptures and massive paintings.
We had such a great time just for the night we wil never forget it. Dad cooks an amazing dinner for us and the owners of the castle and we sit around chatting for hours.
We are off tomorrow, heading to a town called Seigenaly. See you next week for another update. Harry
