Known as the De Vere House, the property is a former Five Star and Gold Award bed and breakfast.

The home and surrounding village (which boasts more than 300 protected heritage properties) appeared as Godric's Hollow in the film adaptions of J.K. Rowling's famed book series, where Harry Potter's parents Lily and James meant to raise their child before they were attacked by the wicked Lord Voldemort (forcing baby Harry, of course, to be raised by the selfish Dursleys and live in a closet under the stairs).

The home has two four-poster bedrooms with en suite bathrooms, TV, wifi, a private guest sitting room with log fire, and a courtyard garden. Guests can also enjoy a full English breakfast in the morning.

The listing also says the property is not suitable for pets or very young children, presumably due to the possible presence of boggarts and the risk of Lord Voldemort or his Death Eaters coming knocking and mistaking infants for a certain Boy Who Lived.

Though it can reasonably be assumed, it remains unknown if the Ministry of Magic is aware that the house is available for rent. It is also a mystery why Rita Skeeter does not seem to have written about it yet.
