The 60 acre Challis Island is actually in the middle of the English countryside of Cambridgeshire and was built from scratch on a lake situated on a private estate. The owner loves pirates so much that he has themed the island to ensure that it looks and feels like pirate living and it even has its own fully-working pub called the Black Dubloon. The project was put together by Master Wishmakers who specialise in making the dreams of wealthy people come true.
Plenty of grog: The island comes complete with its own pub The Black Dubloon.
Pieces of eight: The island was commissioned by a young multimillionaire with a penchant for pirates.
Buried treasure: The island is hidden away on a private estate where it will be used by the owner and his guests.
Historical: The buildings are designed to look like authentic 18th-century constructions.
Ramshackle: Although the buildings look like they are about to fall down, they were handbuilt to a custom design.
Detailed: The island was built to an exact specification by specialist company The Master Wishmakers.
Palatial: The island comes with a guesthouse called The Coffer’s Cabin containing a ‘pirate bed’.
Fantasy: The island comes complete with its own beach and beach hut as well as a lagoon and waterfall.
Life’s a beach: The wealthy owner of the island was inspired by his ‘love of all things pirate’.
Entertaining space: The deck provides plenty of room for barbecues and dancing.
Quirky: The island is an unusual use of the lake on the Cambridgeshire estate.
