A new magical Airbnb listing will have Harry Potter fans all across the world booking a trip to England. You can now stay at the famous Godric's Hollow home where The Boy Who Lived was born. Two muggles can rent out the one bedroom, one bath house located in the village of Lavenham, which is about 80 miles north of London. In addition to the historic home, the medieval village of Lavenham features 300 other protected heritage properties, according to the listing. Potter fans, fear not—Bathila Bagshot and Lord Voldemort's snake, Nagini, will not join you during your stay.

The house is formerly a five-star bed and breakfast-turned-Airbnb rental. It features a sitting room, courtyard garden, a private entrance, and an indoor fireplace (floo powder not provided). Other amenities include a television (where you can host your own Harry Potter movie marathon), WiFi, laptop-friendly workspaces, and breakfast. While in Lavenham, you also can tour the same streets that filmmakers imagined Lily and James Potter walking down with their young son. In fact, the "De Vere" house has become one of the most photographed doorways in the United Kingdom.

The interior of the home does not resemble the harrowing site where Harry lost his parents and survived Lord Voldemort's attack. The charming canopy bed in the "Lady Elizabeth Howard room" and floral linens in the "John de Vere" room are much more quaint English countryside than dark magic.


The cost of the home is £111 per night, which can be booked now on Airbnb. Start packing your trunk (and don't forget your wand).
