Yes, that's right - the Earl and Countess of Carnarvon will be opening an on-site hotel called London Lodge in the grounds of their castle just in time for Valentine's Day.

Condé Nast Traveller reports it has taken two and a half years to "painstakingly" restore the property built in 1793. Mod cons include televisions, a mini bar and Wi-Fi.

However, the Downton charm is still evident in the lodge, which will set the lucky couple staying there around £350 a night.

"The layout for both lodges has been kept simple," says the Highclere Castle website.

"To the north west, a charming sitting room arranged around a Chesneys wood burner, and fully equipped kitchen behind. Then across the lit, paved walkway to the bedroom lodge, a comfortable double bedroom, bathroom and dressing area."
