Calling all ‘Downton Abbey’ fans, you can now spend the night at the television series’ famous setting, Highclere Castle, for just £150 all thanks to Airbnb.
On November 26, the 17th century estate will open its doors for the first time offering guests the rare chance to “live like the Lord or Lady of a stately home”.
Nestled in 1,000 acres of countryside near the town of Newbury, the 300-room property is steeped in history and the current residents, the Earl and Countess of Carnarvon, will wine and dine lucky visitors for one night only.
Treating guests as though they’re members of the Crawley family, a cocktail party will take place in the saloon on the evening before a traditional three-course dinner is served up in the State Dining Room.
After the lavish meal, coffee will be served in the library before guests will retire to one of the Gallery bedrooms which boast views of the rolling parkland.
For an added regal touch, the Highclere Castle’s very own butler will wait on guests during their stay.
The next morning, visitors will be treated to a breakfast fit for royalty before a private tour of the castle’s impressive grounds - a must for serious fans of the world-famous period drama.
“It’s an absolute privilege and pleasure to call Highclere Castle my home and I am delighted to be able to share it on Airbnb for a truly unique stay,” Lady Carnarvon said.
“Highclere Castle has been in the Carnarvon family since 1679 and has an incredibly rich history. I am passionate about the stories and heritage of Highclere Castle, and I am looking forward to welcoming our future guests.”
But if you’re interested then you’ll need to move fast, as the one night stay will only take place on November 26 with reservations going live on October 1 from 12pm.
To be in with a chance of securing a spot, you’ll need to ensure that you have a verified Airbnb profile, positive reviews and a passion for all things ‘Downton Abbey’. Prices £150.
