Imagine you can spend an exclusive evening of cocktails, dinner with a butler, a coffee in the library and that the next day you can wake up with views of more than 400 hectares surrounding Highclere Castle. If you are a true fan of the series you can spend a night at Downton Abbey and experience how the Crawley lived.
It is a unique opportunity offered by the owners of Highclere Castle through Airbnb and that will make two guests feel like royalty, being received by Carnavon’s own counts to get lost in an evening worthy of the series and the movie that is about to be released.
To celebrate the premiere of the movie ‘Downton Abbey’ this Friday, this unique accommodation can be booked on Airbnb and the two lucky ones can enjoy an authentic evening out of a scene of the series or the movie, starting with a cocktail in the lounge to Then go to a traditional dinner in the dining room, with all the attention from the butler of the castle.
Then, as always happened in the series, you will enjoy a coffee in the library with red sofas in which the Crawley always discuss the important issues. Once the evening is over, guests will retire to their rooms, one of the main bedrooms with their own bathroom and views of the meadows that surround the castle.
The next day, before leaving, a delicious breakfast will allow guests to gain strength for a private visit through the extensive grounds of the Highclere Castle, which has an area of more than 9,000m2 and has 300 rooms, all elegantly decorated and furnished. Each detail offers a unique fact about the history of the castle and fans can enter emblematic rooms, such as the drawing-room, or relax in one of the gallery’s bedrooms, as kings and queens once did.
Of course, such a house goes with a series of rules:
- Pets are not allowed, but 9 very nice dogs live in the accommodation.
- Smoking is not allowed, although you see that in the series the gentlemen had a habit of smoking a cigar while playing the game.
- All newspapers should be ironed.
- You can only go with one butler per person.
- Dressing up cocktails is rigueur for dinner.
- The gossips are only permitted on the ground floor.
- The stay will be during the week because, in short: “What is a weekend?”
Highclere Castle will be available for a one-night stay for up to two guests. The stay will take place on November 26, 2019, and the price of the reservation is £ 150 (approximately € 167.77 ), all-inclusive. This accommodation can be booked from October 1, 2019, at 12: 00h in the United Kingdom (13: 00h in peninsular Spain) and here is everything you need to know about the announcement.
