Hey guys, I just thought I'd post a picture of my family home for you all to see!

I don't actually live here (unfortunately) as the property is always occupied by the male family line passed through the eldest son, so the current occupant is a distant cousin of mine.

Hyclere castle is owned and occupied by the earls of carnarvon. The 5th Earl of carnarvon, aka. George Edward Stanhope Molyneux Herbert was my great-great grandfather and is famous for the discovery of Tutankhamun's tomb in egypt.

I've actually been to the house (we didn't go inside as it was closed for a holiday and even family don't get to go in :( ) Its absolutely wonderful though, my grandparents have been up there many times and taken photos, it's beautiful!

unfortunately no, I couldn't live there even if I wanted to, The earls don't even greet the public, and proof of family line doesn't constitute a meeting -_-; My grandfather went up there and they had a picture of his father on the wall O_o when he when back a week later (trying again to talk to the current earl) the photo was missing and noone had any record of it being there. They're actually quite stuck up (as with any royals I'd imagine!

You can however get married there, the house do some amazing wedding packages if you have the money O.o

LOL! No it's not haunted, although an interesting family story-

The 5th earl of carnarvon died from what is expected to be a mosquito bite, exactly the same place where tutankhamun's scar was on his cheek. The curse surrounding king tut said "Death will come on swift wings to those who disturb this tomb" and it is said that king tut also died from a mosquito bite.

The family history records that at the same time carnarvon died, his dog, back at Hyclere also howled and died at the exact same time.
