The Real-Life 'Downton Abbey,' Highclere Castle, Is Available On Airbnb For One Night Only

While the enthusiasm for all things Downton Abbey has never died down, interest is being stoked by the release of the new Downton Abbey movie. The movie is produced by the creator of the PBS series, Sir Julian Fellowes.

But now, there is an added experience available for two lucky Downton Abbey fans. The Earl and Countess of Carnarvon, the masters of Highclere Castle, (which represents Downton Abbey in the television series and movie), have teamed up with Airbnb to offer the experience of a lifetime for one night only, according to Town & Country.

The Airbnb listing will go live on October 1, and two guests will get to "stay and a night of uncompromising royal treatment. In addition to exclusive access to the castle and its grounds, guests will be fully immersed in the Downton Abbey experience," from the second they arrive until they depart the next day.

Lady Carnarvon explains that it's an honor to live in Highclere Castle, and that she's excited to work with Airbnb to share it with others.

"Highclere Castle has been in the Carnarvon family since 1679 and has an incredibly rich history. I am passionate about the stories and heritage of Highclere Castle, and I am looking forward to welcoming our future guests."

There are some house rules, and they are meant to be followed.

Included in this offer are a luxurious breakfast and a private tour of the house and the grounds.
