The one-night only listing will give one lucky couple the chance to spend a night at the stately home in Hampshire on November 26 where they will share dinner with Earl and Lady Carnarvon in the state dining room, before retiring to one of the castle’s gallery bedrooms.
According to CNBC, Highclere Castle has been in the Carnarvon family since 1679. The 100,000 square foot, 300 room home has been featured in various films and TV shows over the years, before rising to international fame as the home of the Crawley family in Downton Abbey.
Applications open on October 1st and to be selected applicants must have a verified Airbnb profile with positive reviews and convince Earl and Lady Carnarvon in a written statement why they are “passionate about Downton Abbey.”
