If there is one book and movie franchise that has always been extremely popular, it has got to be J.K. Rowling’s Harry Potter series. There aren’t many stories that are so magical, beautifully written, and can deliver a great atmosphere, which is why there are millions of Harry Potter fans all over the world.
And if you’re a fan of the books, the movies, or both, you’ll love this fun little rental.
Ever wanted to stay in the Gryffindor Tower? Now you can!
Northshire.co.uk, a company that provides cottage rentals to visitors or travelers, has definitely made a lot of Happy Potter fans happy with their very special accommodations. Everything was built on a family farm, and the variety of buildings is absolutely incredible.
You’ll also find a couple of animal residents over there that are more than happy to entertain.
“Carol, Karl and family would like to welcome you to their beautiful Family Farm located in the outstanding North York Moors set amongst 6 acres of Beautiful old English countryside,” the North Shire website reads. North Shire is a place for Holidays and adventures with a pinch of Magic for good measure. If you enjoy nature and the beauty of the countryside along with long golden sandy beaches, great places to eat and even better company then this place is for you.”
The cottage is nearly identical to Gryffindor Tower in the movies and definitely looks magical.
It was designed by Carol Cavendish with a remarkable eye for detail. It doesn’t matter if you’re young or old, this place is simply amazing to stay at. Who can say they’ve slept in the same beds as Harry and Ron in the movies? They’re absolutely iconic.
Look inside the cottage, and you’ll just feel an incredible atmosphere all around. There’s a traditional stone fireplace, nice use of red drapes, and fairy lights to make the place a lot more magical.
Everything was made as a faithful representation of the Harry Potter universe.
This includes the kitchen, dining area, and bathroom.
The dining area in particular is pretty stunning and unique. Those long chairs and that golden ceiling are definitely eyecatchers.
As for the bathroom, it’s completely modeled after the Prefect’s bathroom in the movies.
You’ll definitely recognize it from when our favorite wizard managed to solve the Triwizard Tournament clue in the Goblet of Fire. The Mirror of Erised is there too, one that shows you every desire you have in the books and the movies.
Aside from the Gryffindor Tower, they also have a Hagrid’s Cottage.
And it’s pretty much just as amazing – even the Ford Anglia car is outside, waiting for you. This whole cottage is, of course, inspired by Hagrid’s Hut in the movies, and it definitely manages to provide an authentic feel.
“The cottage is configured as three interlocking circular rooms, with squat, medieval-looking turrets and mismatched stained-glass windows as a nod to the gothic demeanor of many of your favorite wizarding tales. Its stooped doorway is lit by lanterns and the cottage is surrounded by fields that lead to views of the Yorkshire coast.”
Both the Gryffindor Dorm and Hagrid’s Cottage can sleep six people.
This makes it perfect for a weekend family retreat at a beautiful place.
You can also book wedding receptions and parties in a truly magical environment.
You can check out more details about the cottages on the North Shire website.
If you want to rent out one, you’ll have to be early, because they’re quite in demand from Harry Potter fans all around the world.
