You Can Stay in This ‘GoT’ Star’s Real-Life Castle

Calling all Game of Thrones fans! You can now live like Ygritte (if only for a few days). Or to be more accurate, live like the actor who brought Ygritte to life on screen, Rose Leslie. Thanks to Airbnb, the fiery-headed Scot’s childhood home is available to rent. And here’s the kicker — it’s a real-life castle.

Unlike Ygritte, whose early life was spent in a rustic hunting village on the frozen tundra, Leslie spent her formative years in Lickleyhead Castle. Located in Insch, Scotland, the castle dates back to 1499 and is considered the ancestral seat of the Clan Leslie.

After some encouragement from their grown children, Leslie’s parents, Sebastian and Candida, decided to list Lickleyhead on Airbnb.
