If you’d like to live like British aristocracy for the day, now’s your chance. The iconic mansion from the hit show and upcoming film “Downton Abbey” has been listed on Airbnb and will be open to select lords and ladies for a one night stay.
Highclere Castle, which is used as the setting of the Masterpiece Theater drama, is a real location in Highclere, England, and its owner, the Countess of Carnavon, is the host who has listed her home on Airbnb. For one night only on Nov. 26, Highclere will open the doors to its 300 rooms for you and a guest to get a taste of the finer life in a manor house that dates back to the 17th century.
And you can do so all for the price of $159 per night, which would honestly be a great price for even the 1920s.
“You will get the opportunity to explore iconic rooms you know so well from ‘Downton Abbey,’ such as the Drawing Room and the Library,” Lady Carnavon writes in her listing. “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.'”
The listing says that applicants must be verified Airbnb users with good customer reviews and have a passion for the show. The application period begins on Oct. 1 at 12 p.m. BST.
Airbnb will also make a donation to the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies in honor of the listing. The film “Downton Abbey” opens in the U.S. on Friday.
