In addition to the luxuries, guests will also be given insights about the opulently decorated spaces and their place in Highclere Castle’s history which dates right back to 1842. In the past as well, Airbnb has offered guests an access to ultra-luxe rentals such as Tony’s Stark’s cabin from Avengers . As for the Downtown Abbey castle, reservations will begin at 3pm on Tuesday, October 1 and will be accepted on first-cum first-serve basis. Fancy, checking-in at the Highclere Castle?
