For those of you longing for more than this provincial life, a la Belle from Beauty and the Beast, vacation-rental site HomeAway is dispensing some storybook magic via a new contest.
To celebrate the eagerly anticipated release of Disney's new live-action version of Beauty and the Beast (starring Emma Watson as the book-loving beauty in the yellow dress), HomeAway is sending one lucky winner and up to 20 friends on a fairy-tale trip to the Scottish countryside, where the whole gang will spend 5 nights in an honest-to-goodness castle (pictured above) in the town of Duns.
All travel arrangements will be taken care of by HomeAway, and during their stay the group will have the run of the 14th-century castle's 1,200 acres as well as access to activities including archery, falconry, and, presumably, elaborate musical numbers with the furniture.
You can enter the contest at HomeAway's website. You have until March 31.
Disney's Beauty and the Beast will be in theaters March 17.
