Have you ever fancied staying on the Coronation Street Cobbles?
Well now's your chance, as fans are getting a unique chance to do just that.
For the first time ever, the nation's favourite street is offering fans a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.
As pubs reopen across the country, ‘The Rovers’ Annexe’ – a pop up house which is hosted by the Rovers Return Inn – will host two guests.
This gives Corrie fans an opportunity to immerse themselves in the iconic location, adopting the Rovers Return as a next door neighbour for the evening.
Guests will be able to stay overnight in ‘The Rovers’ Annexe’ on October 2nd 2021 and the annexe will be available to book from May 26th, via airbnb.co.uk/corrie.
The self-contained pop-up house, which has a red-bricked façade and double-glazed windows, will be situated in the heart of the street – next door to the famous Rovers Return Inn.
During the stay guests will be taken on a private tour of the set, followed by a hotpot dinner from the annexe while watching classic Corrie episodes.
If they’re lucky, they may even get a pint in the Rovers and breakfast from Roy’s Rolls.
The view from ‘The Rovers’ Annexe’ looks out towards Audrey’s and a little further along to Prestons Petals and the kebab shop.
Guests will also be able to stroll pass Fiz and Tyrone’s, take a peek in the Kabin window, or wander up Victoria Street to check out the menu at Speed Daal to see what Alya’s been up to.
Although interiors will be closed, guests will be able to wander around Coronation, Rosamund and Victoria Street as much as they want.
They can even have a stroll down the ginnel, site of so many Corrie secret rendezvous!
The specially constructed temporary annexe has been kitted out in classic Coronation Street style, taking inspiration from the Rovers Return B&B decor.
Guests will be able to enjoy a comfortable living area to relax in, with homage to ‘Jenny Connors’ wood panelling and patterned wallpaper.
The living room has a dining table where guests can sit and enjoy their hotpot. The adjoining twin bedroom provides a comfy bedding and prime Weatherfield views.
At the centre of the living area, guests will be able to find a TV set up with hours’ worth of the most loved Coronation Street episodes from over the years.
Fans will be able to watch the affair of the 80s – Deirdre Barlow’s tryst with Mike Baldwin – the disastrous tram crash a decade ago, and last year’s classic moment where David Platt discovers a sinkhole in his back garden.
For a truly authentic experience, guests will enjoy all of their favourite moments from the soap, while sitting in the heart of the Street.
Head of Continuing Drama John Whiston said: “What fan of Coronation Street hasn't had a dream where you find yourself transported into the show itself, wandering around the houses of your best loved characters. I certainly have.
"This unique stay gives you the chance to do just that, stay the night and wake up right next to The Rovers Return. What better way to celebrate Britain opening up again than your very own staycation on the nation's favourite Street.”
Amanda Cupples, General Manager for Northern Europe at Airbnb added: "As restrictions begin to ease and Brits plan summer staycations, Airbnb remains committed to helping people find unique and unforgettable travel experiences within the UK.
"Being the first people ever to stay on the nation’s most loved street is a dream come true for any Corrie fan and a once in a lifetime way to spend time with a friend or family member."
