This Halloween, indulge in a weekend escape straight from your favourite movie fantasies. Airbnb presents an extraordinary opportunity to stay at Shrek’s iconic, moss-covered, mud-splattered home, with none other than his loyal friend, Donkey, as your “host”.

Nestled amidst the picturesque rolling hills of Scotland, this property invites guests to revel in late-night serenity and experience a place that seems plucked from the realm of dreams.

This enchanting place is listed under Donkey, who will play the gracious “host” during your stay. Travellers can immerse themselves in the rustic charm of this legendary house for a two-night sojourn. Inside, you’ll bask in the warm glow of rooms lit by “earwax candlelight”, share tales by the fire, savour parfait (because who doesn’t love parfait?), wake up to freshly made waffles each morning, and relish the seclusion of Shrek’s outhouse. The property boasts amusing “BEWARE” signs scattered around, though they’re likely for decorative purposes, as the listing suggests.

Airbnb has a knack for turning childhood dreams into reality.

The California-based home features a gym, roller rink, bar and grill and a massive infinity pool.
