News: booking Downton Abbey's castle on Airbnb for a night
To celebrate the upcoming motion picture event Downton Abbey, Highclere Castle will open its doors to two guests for a never-before-stay available only on Airbnb. Two fans will be able to stay overnight in one of the grand bedrooms on November 26. Guests will gain exclusive access to the castle and its grounds, including an extravagant traditional dinner in Highclere Castle’s iconic State Dining Room.
Guests will be treated like royalty during their stay, with the Earl and Countess of Carnarvon inviting their guests to join them for an exclusive evening of cocktails in the Saloon followed by a traditional dinner in the State Dining Room, being waited on by Highclere Castle’s own butler. After dinner, coffee will be served in the Library before the guests retire to one of the principal bedrooms with an en-suite bathroom and views over 1,000 acres of rolling parkland. Before departing the next day, guests will enjoy a delicious breakfast prior to a private tour of Highclere Castle’s extensive grounds.
