Muggles and wizards alike can now spend the night in a house featured in the “Harry Potter” films, according to ABC News.

The home in Lavenham, England, was formerly a bed and breakfast and now has been listed on Airbnb, ABC News reported.

Eagle-eyed “Harry Potter” fans may recognize De Vere House from the films — the house and surrounding village were used as the setting for the village of Godric’s Hollow, where the character of Harry Potter was born and spent the first year of his life, according to ABC News.

De Vere House offers two bedrooms with four-poster beds, a sitting room with a log fire and a full English breakfast, according to the listing on Airbnb.

Although the house is often referred to as “The Harry Potter House” by locals both the house and the village of Lavenham have history of their own, according to the De Vere House website.

The house and village have both existed in some form since medieval times, and there have even been ghost sightings inside the home, according to the website of the De Vere House.

However, the “Harry Potter” connection with the house is strong.

“JK Rowling was well-acquainted with the village and we know her friend stayed here while she was in the process of writing the books,” Tony Ranzetta, who has lived at the house with his wife Jane for 20 years, told Marie Claire. “It was surely in her mind when she created Godric’s Hollow.”

You can book a stay at De Vere House from $142 a night, according to the listing on Airbnb.
