As we all know, travelling abroad is a bit of a gamble at the moment, what with the ever-changing international guidelines regarding coronavirus. But fear not, because you can go on holiday in a magical new world without needing to set foot on a plane - you've just got to get yer sen to Yorkshire. The North Shire, situated in Liverton on the edge of the North York Moors National Park, has just opened a new accommodation modelled on the common room in Gryffindor house at Hogwarts. Credit: CAG

The Dorm has six single beds - which is handy given the current rule of six - so you and your nerdy Gryffindor homies can get away for a long weekend of pretending you're at Hogwarts. Credit: CAG

When you're not in your four poster beds, you'll be to relax together in the open plan lounge area, which boasts a large stone fireplace. It's the perfect spot for kicking back and practicing your spells or necking a few butterbeers. There's also a little kitchen if you fancy cooking up a storm - after all, the students at Hogwarts don't pig out on Deliveroo every night do they? Credit: CAG

The bathroom also features numerous nods to the wizarding world, namely a 'specially-commissioned backlit stained glass window' depicting a blonde mermaid that became famous in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, and a number of ornate Gothic style features which offer 'a further nod to the opulence of the prefects' bathroom'.

Explaining why she decided to create The Dorm, business entrepreneur and designer Carol Cavendish said: "We stayed positive during the darkness of lockdown and used the time to crack on with completing the next phase of our vision for creating a fantasy story-book themed holiday venue that suits families and those looking to stage a memorable get-together - whether it's a wedding, birthday party or other function. Today when there's so much fear around the pandemic, people are looking for ways they can step back from reality for a short time and be comforted in a world of make-believe which is just what The Dorm aims to do along with our other accommodation." A stay at The Dorm is priced at £50 per person per night, based on a six-person booking. You can find out more and book the accommodation at www.northshire.co.uk. Credit: CAG
