Magical Harry Potter Airbnb in the UK

Harry Potter has deservingly become one of the world’s most well-known movie franchises. And with the popularity of both the books and the movies come various Harry Potter-themed attractions in countries all over the globe.

Magical Harry Potter Airbnb in the UK

From the Warner Bros. Studio Tour London – The Making of Harry Potter to Universal Orlando’s Wizarding World of Harry Potter, Harry Potter has truly taken the world by storm. Now, Potter fans can even immerse themselves further in the magic thanks to Harry Potter-themed Airbnbs—many of which, are in the UK.

If you are a serious Harry Potter fan in need of a weekend break, then get your robes packed as you won’t want to miss these seven Harry Potter-inspired Airbnbs.

The Best Harry Potter-Themed Airbnbs To Book

Harry Potter Airbnb in Ireland

Draiocht (Magic) House, Boyle, Ireland

One of the first Harry Potter-themed Airbnb UK stays is the Draiocht House in Boyle, Ireland. This property—which is ideally located near many popular local attractions—may look like an average house from the outside, but once you step inside, you’re transported into the wizarding world with Harry Potter theming throughout the home’s entirety. 

Not only are each of the bedrooms themed to represent one of the Hogwarts Houses but even the lounge room and stairs feature Harry Potter decorations, including the iconic Platform 9 and ¾. 

And although all of the theming throughout the Airbnb deserves recognition, my personal favourite touch is the cupboard under the stairs—a bedroom that lets you sleep just like Harry did before the Dursleys gave him Dudley’s second bedroom, of course. 

With a tree house out in the back garden, along with ½ an acre of green space, the Draiocht House is the perfect Harry Potter-inspired Airbnb for both magic and non-magic families alike. 

Harry Potter Airbnb in England

Hogwarts Hideaway, Garston, Hertfordshire

Over in Garston, Hertfordshire, is quite possibly one of the most elaborate Harry Potter-themed stays in the UK.

And the best part? It’s only a 10-minute drive from the Warner Brother’s Studio Tours London!

Featuring three bedrooms—and a fourth photo-only bed, again, under the stairs—the Hogwarts Hideaway Airbnb resembles Hogwarts itself, with night sky-painted ceilings, brickwork wallpaper, and framed photographs similar to those you’d find in the castle. 

The owners have done an incredible job at theming rooms around the Gryffindor Common Room, Albus Dumbledore’s Office, and the Chamber of Secrets Bathroom. Plus, in one of the bedrooms, there are even child-suitable bunk beds in the shape of the Knight Bus! 

The kitchen and the garden are two of the only areas of the house without theming, however, both of which are modernly decorated with all the appliances you could possibly need. 

Check out these Harry Potter Attractions in London that are just under an hour away from the property.  

De Vere House (Godric’s Hollow), Lavenham

Unfortunately, this Harry Potter-themed Airbnb in the UK isn’t suitable for families with children under the age of 18. But for Harry Potter-loving adults, it really doesn’t get much better than this.

The De Vere House appeared as Harry Potter’s childhood home in Godric’s Hollow in the first Deathly Hallows movie. And now guests can stay in one of two rooms (you can find the second room here) while also enjoying the property’s courtyard, private sitting room, and dining area. 

With the owner providing full English breakfasts every morning of your stay and magical-themed activities that you can get involved with, the De Vere House is a must-stay for serious Harry Potter fans visiting the village of Lavenham. 

Enchanted Chamber York

The Enchantment Chamber, York

Did you know that York has a collection of Harry Potter-themed attractions dotted throughout the city? I’ve put together an entire article on all of York’s Harry Potter Attractions.

However, there are also some incredible Harry Potter-themed Airbnbs, including The Enchantment Chamber—a one-bedroom apartment just a short walk from the Shambles. 

The Enchantment Chamber’s bedroom—mainly due to the magnificent four-poster bed—is by far the star of the show when it comes to this apartment. However, Airbnb’s living room, kitchen, and dining area also nod to the Harry Potter franchise with a realistic open fire and a collection of magical artifacts from the wizarding world.

As the property only has the one-bedroom, it isn’t suitable for families. But if you’re looking for a getaway with your partner, or you have a single mini witch or wizard who wants to explore York’s Harry Potter attractions, then the Enchantment Chamber is a fantastic option. 


101 House At The End. Witchcraft & Wizardry House, York

Another Harry Potter Airbnb in York is the 101 House at the End.

This quaint little two-bed property is a stone’s throw away from York’s city center. And has magnificent decorations throughout—it personally reminds me of the Weasley house. 

After snuggling on the sofa in the reading room watching one—or all—of the Harry Potter movies, you can then make your way upstairs to soak in the Slytherine-inspired bathroom before jumping into bed in the Emerald bed chamber.

The second bedroom in the home features bunk beds, with the room resembling the sleeping quarters in the Gryffindor dorms. 

One thing to note about this Airbnb is that the staircase is incredibly steep. So it may not be a suitable choice for those with mobility issues. 


Harry Potterzzz Mansion, Osbaldwick, York

The final York Harry Potter Airbnb stay that is worth mentioning is the Harry Potterzzz Mansion. The name of this property is somewhat misleading, as it is simply a room, not a ‘mansion.’

However, the private room will make you feel like you’re in the Gryffindor dorm with Harry Potter bedding and decorations throughout. 

Inside the room, you’ll also have access to a mini-kitchen equipped with a kettle, microwave, and fridge, along with an en-suite bathroom.


Harry Potter Airbnb in Scotland

Magical Harry Potter-inspired Flat, West Bow, Edinburgh

And the final Harry Potter-inspired Airbnb is up in Edinburgh—yet another destination that is teeming with Harry Potter attractions.

Edinburgh was where J.K. Rowling wrote the very first instalment of her seven-book series. And with that comes locations, names, and buildings that inspired the wizarding world. 

If you’re looking to check out Edinburgh’s Harry Potter scene, then this magical Harry Potter Airbnb Edinburgh-inspired flat is the perfect accommodation option for you.

Set on West Bow—the inspiration for Diagon Alley—the one-bedroom apartment (however, there is an additional sofa bed) puts you right in the mix of the Harry Potter attractions and provides you with everything you’d need for a short city stay. 

The largest room of the property takes inspiration from the Grand Halls of Hogwarts. And even has luggage similar to those that Hogwarts students use.

Hagrid’s Hut and the whomping willow motivated the decor in the bedroom, while Gringotts Bank influenced the bathroom. 

As far as the Airbnbs on this list go, this Edinburgh apartment isn’t the most elaborately themed Harry Potter option. But sometimes, subtle hints can still make a big impact.
