We have some good news for all you Potterheads out there. Remember, Harry Potter’s childhood home where he stayed with his parents until Lord Voldemort came along to wreck havoc?
Guess what, you can now rent a room in De Vere House, the real name of the wizard’s childhood home on Airbnb for just $142 (₹10,074 approx) a night. Excited?
This house is quite significant in the movie because it was where Harry Potter’s parents were killed. Also, Voldemort was vanquished here, thus ending the first wizarding war and even his last hocrux was created here.
Harmonie and Harry also visit this house in ‘Deathly Hallows’ where they see people coming in and writing messages on the walls and showing their gratitude as it became a pilgrimage sight in the movie. So, there was a sense of nostalgia that was always attached to Harry’s childhood home.
This comfortable accommodation also offers a room where a true Harry Potter fan can curl up and read. You’ll also get to indulge in some mouth-watering English breakfast too. What more do you really need?
Walking into this home will make you feel like you’ve re-visited the past as it retains plenty of its English charm, including a stone spiral staircase, a medieval painting, and a giant wooden door emblazoned with hand-carved huntsmen. Lovely!
Before being listed on Airbnb, this extremely charming house was a former five-star bed and breakfast. In $142 you can get “two four-poster bedrooms both with en suite bathrooms,” or a “private guest sitting room with log fire and courtyard garden.”
This century-old house was originally built in the 14th century for the wealthy de Vere family and it lies in the idyllic village of Lavenham, England which is yet another beautiful place.
