'Game of Thrones' Star Rose Leslie's Childhood Home Is on Airbnb—and It's a Castle

If we rent it, do we get our own Kit Harington too?

Although the opportunity to jump into bed with Kit Harington hasn't been forthcoming (damn it), there are other ways to feel like Rose Leslie—like renting her childhood home on Airbnb.

While the Downton Abbey actress has confirmed her engagement to her Game of Thrones costar, its the castle (!) where she grew up that's garnering the most attention today, after the Daily Mail reported it was up for rent.


According to Airbnb, Lickleyhead Castle in Insch, Aberdeenshire is "a quiet and secluded venue set in beautiful parkland surrounded by mature trees and lawns which has played host to weddings in the past. It includes a large great hall for spending time together in front of original medieval open fireplace and a cosy panelled sitting room."

It may not be Dragonstone, but it is an actual, legitimate CASTLE.

The description continues, "Lickleyhead Castle is a great venue for family gatherings, reunions and birthday celebrations. It is quiet and secluded and very private set in beautiful parkland surrounded by mature trees and lawns.


"There is a barbecue area with outdoor furniture for al fresco dining with a burn (stream) running past. In the past we have hosted small weddings."

Yeah, it looks pretty special.

Rose's parents Sebastian and Candida offer bed-and-breakfast at the 15th-century pile for £110 per room, or you can rent the whole place for £600 a night. Interested? Find out more details here.
