Harry Potter fans can now stay at Hagrid's cottage for $1.80 a week!

Want to experience the Harry Potter-magic of living in the grounds of Hogwarts?

Well, now you can! A UK farm has built a copy of the cottage where huge groundsman, Hagrid, lives with his dog, Fang in the books and movies.

Yes, that means you can embrace your inner wizard with a stay at the cottage that sleeps up to six adults.

The' hut' is part of the accommodation offered at North Shire, a farm in the North York Moors in the English countryside. Set in six acres, they have built a Harry Potter-style Groundskeeper’s Cottage to rent out to holiday makers.

And it's pretty stunning inside...

They describe it as: ‘a cottage configured as three interlocking circular rooms, with squat, medieval-looking turrets and mismatched stained-glass windows as a nod to the gothic demeanour of Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.

Its stooped doorway is lit by lanterns and the cottage is surrounded by fields that lead to views of the Yorkshire coast. Guests can even bring their own Fang, as the cottage is dog-friendly.”

If that's not appealing enough, this Christmas, you can actually enjoy staying at the Groundskeeper's Cottage for a whole week as part of a big competition, and all you’ll pay is $1.80.

The farm owners have offered one family to win the chance to spend Christmas in the cottage for seven nights (from December 22 to 29, 2019).

To enter, you pay $1.80 for a chance to win, meet a snowy owl called Hedwig, enjoy a show with a Harry Potter-style magician and even ride on a steam train at the famous Harry Potter station in Goathland nearby.

Keen? All you'll need is your air fare! And your wand... oh and win the competition!
