Are you a fan of haunted houses? And Harry Potter? Good news! You can stay in the real one from the books and films!
That’s right, the Shrieking Shack, from “The Prisoner of Azkaban,” is open to customers, if they’ve got the gonads to brave it!
The Suffolk-based DeVere House, Grade 1 listed, has housed Jane and Tony Ranzetta for over twenty years.
Tony explained as he spoke about J.K. Rowling lifting inspiration from his house for her stories, saying:
“JK Rowling was well acquainted with the village and we know her friend stayed here whilst she was in the process of writing the books, it was surely in her mind when she created Godric’s Hollow.
“The house if often referred to as the Harry Potter House by locals and in the media, and a huge picture of our front door can be seen at the Warner Bros’ exhibition on the making of Harry Potter.
“The whole story is quite peculiar really. Just after we first moved into the house, Jane saw a uniquely dressed man walk through the kitchen wall and into the garden beyond. She was obviously taken aback but understands that a house with this much history must surely hold echoes of the past.”
What the… this sounds spooky as hell!
If you want to stay at this incredible house, it’ll set you back $140 per night.
If you can’t quite make it to England tonight, and happen to be based in NYC, then check out the Steamy Hallows cafe instead!
Described as a “grab and go” style café, there are only four stools along the wall. More in tune with the Italian caffeine experience, and although the perfect spot get snaps for Instagram, it’s not somewhere you’ll spend a lengthy jaunt. Still, punters are bound to enjoy whatever time they spend here.
