Photographed by: Alix McIntosh

In a recent announcement online, Airbnb has unveiled the Shrek Airbnb and it’s captured the hearts of travelers seeking a fairytale escape like no other. 

Located far away from the hustle and bustle of city life, Shrek’s iconic “swamp” can be found within the expansive Ardverikie Estate, a 19th-century Scottish mansion nestled in the picturesque Scottish Highlands, approximately 60 miles to the south of Inverness. 

The Airbnb offers a tranquil setting that feels like it’s straight out of a storybook. Surrounded by lush forests and rolling hills, the property provides a sense of seclusion and serenity, making it the perfect retreat for those looking to escape the everyday grind.

Upon arriving at the Shrek Airbnb, guests are greeted by a life-sized replica of Shrek’s iconic swamp home. This charming abode features all the quirky details you’d expect, including a thatched roof, rustic wooden walls, and even some homemade signs warning guests about the titular ogre.  

The Shrek Airbnb can comfortably accommodate up to three guests and the room is adorned with Shrek-themed bedding and decor, immersing you in the world of Far Far Away. While there isn’t a kitchen available on the premises, rest assured that all your meals and snacks will be taken care of. 

For those who want to take their Shrek experience to the next level, this trip is for you. It’s a truly magical way to celebrate a special occasion. So, pack your bags, grab your fairy tale-loving friends, and prepare to live happily ever after in the heart of Shrek’s swamp.

Reservations will become available for booking on October 13th at 6 p.m. BST for a single, two-night stay accommodating a maximum of three guests from October 27th to October 29th.
