Oooh, how gorgeous would this be?

To celebrate the turn of the decade, the stunning Belvoir Castle is throwing open its doors for three exclusive stays.

The one-night stays are available to book only on Airbnb.

For the first time ever, the castle will be opening up its lavish King’s Suite for three one-night stays on December 31, January 11 and January 25.

Talk about the perfect way to ring in the new year.

Through Airbnb, three pairs of guests can book a stay in the grand suite, which was originally purpose-built for visiting royalty and has been used as a filming location standing in for Windsor for the hit series The Crown and featured in the period drama film The Young Victoria.

As guests of the Duchess of Rutland and her family, guests will get to live like royalty in the three room suite, which is adorned with opulent, regal interiors from floor to ceiling.

The royal experience will begin on the afternoon of arrival, when the guests will enjoy a delicious afternoon tea within the very grounds where the tradition of afternoon tea is said to have originated back in the 1840s.

Afternoon tea will be followed by dinner served in the State Dining Room; later in the evening, enjoy a drinks reception in The Library, as seen in The Crown.

“The King’s Suite is a truly unique space with a fascinating history, so I am very excited to share it with guests for the first time on Airbnb,” The Duchess of Rutland said.

“One couple in particular over New Year’s Eve, will get to ring in the new decade in truly unforgettable style. Whether you’re drawn to the incredible Regency architecture, want to experience the lavish royal lifestyle or simply follow in the footsteps of your favourite stars, a stay at Belvoir is sure to provide a memorable experience”.

“Belvoir Castle is truly a gem of the English countryside, enticing locals and tourists alike to explore the grounds and steep themselves in its history,” Jeroen Merchiers, Airbnb Managing Director for EMEA said. “But never before have you been able to stay overnight in the The King’s Suite, so we’re delighted that the Duchess of Rutland has listed it on Airbnb for this fantastic opportunity”.
