Positive reviews on Airbnb have never mattered more. Downton Abbey—well, Highclere Castle, technically—has just manifested on the site, offering a one-night-only stay for well-ranked guests.

Yes, that is Lady Carnarvon’s smiling face in that cheerful little host bubble, inviting you to the 1,000-acre, 17th-century estate where the show was filmed for the evening of November 26, 2019. She promises you will be “treated like royalty” during your stay, which includes cocktails in the saloon, dinner with the Earl and Countess of Carnarvon in the State Dining Room, coffee in the library, and finally, a nostalgic slumber in one of the 300-room property’s gallery bedrooms. (And, yes, there is butler service.)
