You Can Stay Overnight In The Downton Abbey Castle


You can spend the evening in the castle that is featured in Downton Abbey.

Even though it's posted on Airbnb's website, it's something you can win, rather than buy. To celebrate the movie based on the tv show Downton Abbey, Earl and Countess of Carnarvon are giving one lucky chance to live like a "lord and lady" in the same castle they used for filming.

According to the site, you'll 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."

But there's no wifi or mini-fridge in your room. Womp womp.

The real name of the property is the Highclere Castle. It's got 100,000 square feet and 300 rooms. Many of the rooms and the exteriors were used for filming Downton.
