Highclere Castle - the home of Downton Abbey - is now available for a once-in-a-lifetime stay.
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.
Highclere Castle covers 100,000 square feet and has a total of 300 rooms that are opulently decorated and furnished, with each detail providing a unique insight into its history. 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.
You will get the opportunity to explore iconic rooms you know so well from Downton Abbey, such as the Drawing Room and the Library. For one night, you can follow in the footsteps of kings and queens and enjoy life as a Lord or Lady to celebrate the upcoming motion picture event, Downton Abbey.
Highclere Castle is only available to book for a one night stay taking place on November 26th. Reservation opportunities will go live on October 1 at 12PM BST. This listing will be very popular, so to book you must have a verified Airbnb profile, positive reviews, and be passionate about Downton Abbey. Please also identify your guest when requesting to book.
As Highclere Castle is a historical building and retains much of its 17th Century structure, it is not suited for all accessibility needs.
To celebrate this special offering, Airbnb will be making a donation to The International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies.
