When it comes to turning the locations from your favourite films and TV shows into actual rentable accommodation, there's only one place to go - AirBnb. 

Over the years, they've listed incredible places for countless fandoms. Whether you want to book the iconic cottage from The Holiday or Villanelle's amazing Killing Eve apartment, there is something for every pop culture vulture. 

In recent years they've also started offering jet setters the opportunity of a lifetime with one-off chances to stay somewhere unbookable - just consider the fact that last year you could apply to stay in the actual Moulin Rouge, and a few months ago Barbie's Malibu mansion was listed (complete with dance lessons from Ken).

Now, they're turning their attention to the home of a well known grumpy Scottish ogre. That's right, Shrek's Swamp is now an actual Airbnb listing.

The one and only Donkey is opening the doors for anyone who wants a getaway consisting of staying up late, swapping stories and enjoying breakfast waffles. 

In celebration of Halloween, Shrek's Swamp will be available for three guests over a two night stay from 27th to 29th October.

The property is located near Newtonmore in the Scottish Highlands and is tucked away in a place 'far, far away from, well, anything' apparently. However, the secluded nature of the swamp means that guests can enjoy a range of outdoor activities from walking trails to forest picnics to late night stargazing. And if you want to enjoy everything that the indoors has to offer, you can 'relax in the ambiance of earwax candlelight'. Lovely. 

Donkey is house sitting for his pal and writes in the listing: "Shrek's Swamp is a stumpy, secluded haven fit for a solitude-seeking ogre… and for the first time ever, a handful of his biggest fans, thanks to yours truly. 

"I'm swamp-sitting while Shrek’s away this Halloween, and I’m absolutely delighted to invite you in for a fairytale stay. Oh, and never mind the 'BEWARE' signs. They’re probably for decoration."
