The classic British aristocratic life that one sees on Downton Abbey, the award-winning TV series, is now available to non-snooty non-aristocrats – if they pay up $545 for a weekend stay. Highclere Castle, the British mansion that serves as ‘Downton’ in the television series, is taking bookings for London Lodge, an 18th century “unique and luxurious” accommodation for two. According to the estate, the lodge has been restored over the past two years by the current Earl of Carnarvon and his wife. The lodge has a double bedroom, bathroom and dressing area, a kitchen and sitting room arranged around a wood-burning stove. The weekend visitor staying here can admire one of Britain’s grandest castles and 6,000 acres of parkland. London Lodge, situated to the north of Highclere Castle, will be available for Valentine’s Day 2015 and for selected weekends through the spring and summer.
