Shrek fans can stay in the loveable ogre's swamp cottage home in Scotland

Fans of Shrek and his motor-mouthed sidekick, Donkey are being offered a unique opportunity to spend two nights in the iconic ogre's swamp, all thanks to Airbnb.

Located amidst the picturesque hills of the Scottish Highlands, Shrek's Swamp is a secluded haven perfect for anyone seeking solitude, just like the reclusive ogre himself.

"Shrek's Swamp is a real gem," gushed Donkey. "It's beautiful in every way. From the overgrown landscaping to the modest interiors and those comfy boulders, it's all just perfect. I can't wait for our guests to experience this muddy slice of paradise."

For the first time ever, a select few will have the chance to live like an ogre and immerse themselves in the enchanting atmosphere of Shrek's sanctuary. Guests will be able to book a two-night stay for up to three visitors on 27 to 29 October, all for the symbolic price of £0 a night. This nod to the priceless refuge Shrek's Swamp has provided to countless fairytale creatures reflects the generosity of the hosts. During their stay, guests can expect to bask in the ambiance of "earwax candlelight" and share stories around a cosy fire well into the night - all in the ultimate privacy of Shrek's trusted outhouse.

The property is also part of the Ardverikie Estate - a beautiful baronial house and grounds that was made famous by the BBC TV show Monarch of the Glen. Booking for this enchanting retreat opens on 13 October 2023 at 6 p.m. BST on Airbnb's website, airbnb.com/shrek.
