Highclere Castle from Downton Abbey will be available to book on Airbnb

If you’re a fan of the popular historical drama series Downton Abbey, you’ll want to take this opportunity to book a one of a kind Airbnb listing.

Airbnb says that Highclere Castle, located in Highclere, England, UK, will be opening its doors to two guests to stay in the home of the Crawleys.

The castle is being opened up in advance of the upcoming motion picture, in theatres on Friday.

Two fans of the show will be able to stay overnight in one of the grand bedroom on Nov. 26, 2019. They’ll have exclusive access to the castle and its grounds, including an extravagant traditional dinner in the castle.

If you get to stay in the castle, you’ll have to abide by a few rules. First of all, no pets are allowed, but there are nine friendly dogs on site.

All newspapers must be ironed and there is strictly only one butter per person! Also, gossip is restricted to the downstairs quarters only.

Guests will be treated like royalty during their stay, with the Earl and Countess of Carnarvon inviting their guests to join them for an exclusive evening of cocktails in the Saloon followed by a traditional dinner in the State Dining Room, being waited on by Highclere Castle’s own butler.

After dinner, coffee will be served in the Library before the guests will retire to one of the principal bedrooms with an en-suite bathroom and views over 1,000 acres of rolling parkland.

Before departing the next day, guests will enjoy a delicious breakfast prior to a private tour of Highclere Castle’s extensive grounds.

The Castle itself covers 100,000 square feet and has a total of 300 rooms. Throughout the property, the rooms are opulently decorated and furnished, with each detail providing a unique insight into Highclere Castle’s history.

Fans will get the opportunity to explore iconic rooms, such as the drawing room, or relax in one of the gallery bedrooms, following in the footsteps of kings and queens.

Highclere Castle is only available for a one night stay for up to two guests on Nov. 26, 2019 costing £150, or $212 CAD, inclusive. Booking for the listing will open on Oct. 1, 2019.
