HomeAway is partnering up with Disney to give away a trip to a fairytale castle in Duns, Scotland, to commemorate the theatrical release of Disney’s live-action Beauty and the Beast. The winner of the contest—plus 20 of their friends—will enjoy a five-night stay in this majestic 14th century castle, similar to one in the much anticipated film starring Emma Watson and Dan Stevens. The package includes all travel arrangements—HomeAway has you completely covered here.

This is a once-and-a-lifetime-dream-come-true kind of opportunity, people. Look at this castle. It’s a castle! It’s incredible!


This could be your castle for five days. You’d have free reign over this whole castle. That’s 1,200 acres of castle entirely to yourselves.


There will be activities offered, such as falconry and archery (for the adventurous types). Or if you’re hoping for an experience more like the film, you can walk around the house singing or perhaps talk to the furniture. Note: the furniture will not talk back—you will have to pretend. Also, warn your 20 friends that you’re planning on walking around and talking to the furniture maybe.


The contest launches today, and is open to travelers from the U.S., France, Germany, and the U.K., and you can enter the #HomeAwayCastle drawing by visiting The competition closes on March 31, 2017.
