You can now stay at the real Downton Abbey on Airbnb

Fans of the British period drama series, Downton Abbey, are being given the opportunity to stay in Hampshire's Highclere Castle, the stately home where the TV show was filmed.

Thanks to the Earl and Countess of Carnarvon, who placed their home on the Airbnb booking website, two lucky guests are to be treated "like royalty" - but for one night only. The date for this one-night stay in one of the castle's 300 rooms is 26 November.

The opportunity comes days before the highly anticipated Downton Abbey movie is set to be released in cinemas.

Take a look at the official trailer for the Downton Abbey movie:

Take a read of the description for the luxury stay on Airbnb:

"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."

The guests will join the Earl and Countess of Carnarvon, for an evening of cocktails followed by dinner in the State Dining Room. After dinner, coffee will be served in the Library. The room they will stay in boasts striking views of the surrounding countryside.

Bookings can be made from noon on 1 October, however, certain conditions are expected of the applicants. Indeed, those who wish to be considered must have a record of positive reviews from past Airbnb reservations. They must also show they are "passionate about Downton Abbey" in the text they are expected to submit when requesting the reservation.

So, for £120 ($150), you could live out your fantasy of living it up in a country mansion as a lord or lady.
