‘Downton Abbey’ fans now book Highclere Castle on Airbnb!

An incredible opportunity is coming up for Downton fans later this year.

Highclere Castle is being listed on Airbnb – including your own butler!

The 17th-century Victorian-era manor is the main location for Downton Abbey in ITV’s hit period drama series and the new movie was also shot there last year.

Located near the town of Newbury, about 50 miles from London, Highclere Castle is the private family home of the Earl and Countess of Carnarvon.

The 300-room property can be yours for the night on Tuesday 26th November.

The Airbnb listing says: “For one night only, you can sleep in one of the Castle’s iconic bedrooms and get the opportunity to live like the Lord or Lady of a stately home.

“For the first time, two guests are cordially invited to immerse themselves in life at Highclere Castle and will be treated like royalty during their stay.”

Lady Carnarvon has written on Airbnb: “During your stay, you will enjoy an exclusive evening drinking cocktails in the Saloon followed by a traditional dinner with the Earl and Countess of Carnarvon in the State Dining Room, being waited on by Highclere Castle’s own butler. After dinner, coffee will be served in the Library before you retire to one of the Gallery bedrooms with an en-suite bathroom and views over 1,000 acres of rolling parkland.

“Before departing the next day, you will enjoy a delicious breakfast prior to a private tour of Highclere Castle’s extensive grounds. What’s more, you will receive a special gift from Lord and Lady Carnarvon so you can enjoy a little bit of Highclere Castle at home.”

Bookings can be made from 1st October.

The listing is open to anyone, but you’ll need a verified Airbnb profile, positive reviews and must be passionate about Downton Abbey.

The Downton Abbey movie was released in the UK last week, where it topped the box office on its opening weekend.

The film arrives in US cinemas on Friday, following a brand new one-hour Downton special on NBC on Thursday night.

Downton Abbey: The Complete Collection DVD box set is available on Amazon.
