This Harry Potter Home Is Available to Rent on Airbnb

You Can Now Stay in Harry Potter’s Childhood Home, Thanks to Airbnb

Potter fans, take note.

Despite the Harry Potter film series ending more than a decade ago, devout fans are still going strong. After ticking off major attractions like the Warner Bros. Studio Tour London and The Wizarding World of Harry Potter off their bucket lists, Potterheads can enjoy something new: Spending a night in a Harry Potter home — one that has the distinction of being the actual childhood house of The Boy Who Lived.

Yup, one of the houses which served as the inspiration for Harry’s home in Godric’s Hollow is now a charming bed-and-breakfast. The property, located in a small village called Lavenham, goes by the name of De Vere House.

Now, De Vere House is on Airbnb, allowing guests the opportunity to stay the night at “Harry’s home.” This Harry Potter Airbnb doesn’t feature anything Potter-related on the inside, it holds a significant place in Potter lore.  Plus, this Muggle residence is set in one of the most well-preserved villages in East UK.

There are very few things Celia won’t do for a good story, but her favourite ones always involve the beach, animals, or any type of outdoor activity. She’s been writing for as long as she can remember, and can usually be found typing away at home with her cute dogs at her feet. Away from work, she spends most of her time trying out every hobby she can get her hands on, from running to crocheting to baking (she’s pretty okay at most things that don't involve cooking).
