If you fancy a night living like a lord and lady at Highclere Castle, the main filming location for the Emmy Award-winning drama, Downton Abbey, Airbnb has a one-night-only offer coming up soon.

As a promotion for the release of the movie Downton Abbey, Highclere Castle in Hampshire, England, is opening its doors to two guests for a one-night stay on November 26.

George Herbert, the 8th Earl of Carnavon, and his wife, Countess Fiona, live at the castle when it is not open to the public.

They will invite the guests for cocktails in the saloon, followed by dinner in the state dining room, where they will be served by the castle's butler.

Then they'll receive coffee in the library before retiring to one of the principal bedrooms.

In the morning, the guests will receive a private tour of the castle grounds.

Booking for the Airbnb listing will open on October 1.
