A 14th century Scottish castle is opening up its doors to host a special tie-in with the Beauty and the Beast premiere that will offer 21 guests the chance to live out the tale that's old as time, as their guests. 

In partnership with the vacation rental company HomeAway.com and Disney, Duns Castle, located an hour south of Edinburgh, is offering one winner and 20 of their friends a fairytale, five-night stay at the historic castle

Hidden within 1,200 acres, the property is home to extensive forest trails and offers outdoor activities like falconry, archery, clay pigeon, along with wine and whisky tastings and art classes.

It's not the only film tie-in for the castle: Along with the highly anticipated premiere of the live-action Beauty and the Beast reboot starring Emma Watson and Dan Stevens, the property was also featured in the award-winning film Mrs. Brown, starring Judi Dench and Billy Connolly. 

Not far off, guests can also visit Rosslyn Chapel, which got its 15 minutes of silver screen fame in the The Da Vinci Code with Tom Hanks. 

Duns Castle has been family-owned for more than 300 years, and is closed to the public but can be rented out for weddings, vacations, and corporate retreats. The property features 12 bedrooms that can sleep up to 23 people.
