Downton Abbey fans will soon be able to spend the night in the famous estate at Highclere Castle.
According to the Telegraph, the Carnarvon family, the owners of the castle where the period drama unfolds, have decided to open a guest lodge on the property where guests can rent rooms for short stays.
The dubbed London Lodge consists of two restored buildings located on both sides of the state's gatehouse. The buildings are connected by a path and feature "wood-burning stoves in the sitting rooms, little kitchens, a bedroom and dressing room."
Unlike the castle in the PBS series, the lodge has a modern-cozy feel to it.

"Downstairs, the two big treats are the dining room, with its mighty Van Dyck portrait of King Charles I on horseback, and the library, running almost the length of the house," said writer Sophie Campbell, who recently visited the property.
The lodge also includes "shelves of valuable calf-bound leather books" and hidden doors.
A night at the property begins at 350 pounds.
Downton Abbey will begin filming its sixth season in 2015.
