The Lady of Highclere Castle cordially invites you to spend the night in her home, which doubles as Downton Abbey in the upcoming movie and the recently ended television show.
Don’t book your flight just yet, though.
Through Airbnb, Lady Carnarvon is offering two guests the opportunity to live like royalty on November 26.
Lady Carnarvon and her husband live in the castle, which has been in her family since 1679.
“I am passionate about the stories and heritage of Highclere Castle and I am delighted to be able to share it with others who have a love of the building and its history. With the support of Airbnb, I am excited to open Highclere Castle up for a truly unique stay,” Lady Carnarvon said on the Airbnb post.
If you are lucky enough to get to stay in the castle, you will be greeted by Lord and Lady Carnarvon when you arrive. Evening cocktails will be served in the saloon, followed by a traditional dinner with the Earl and Countess of Carnarvon in the state dining room. Enjoy coffee in the library after dinner. Your bedroom will overlook 1,000 acres of parkland, the website states.
You’ll also get a chance to explore the castle and see the rooms you’ve seen on the show. Before you leave, Lord and Lady Carnarvon will give you a special gift to remember your stay.
Booking for the stay on November 26 goes live October 1st at midnight BST (7 p.m. EST). There is only one bedroom available for two people, so the competition will be tough.
The movie “Downton Abbey” begins September 20 at dozen of theaters in Georgia. You can find the full list and get tickets on the official “Downton Abbey” website.

If you’re a fan of the show but aren’t lucky enough to spend the night in the castle, don’t fret. Highclere is open to the public for tours and events throughout the year.
“We hope children will come and find Santa’s Grotto on the weekend nearer Christmas whilst, as a finale, Charles Dickens’ great-great-grandson, Gerald Dickens, will join us to read excerpts from A Christmas Carol,” Highclere’s website says about its November and December events.
