This Halloween Shrek’s swamp has been turned into an Airbnb that you can actually stay in.

The mud-laden, moss-covered, murky-watered swamp is situated among the rolling hills of the Scottish Highlands, where guests can stay up late, swap stories, and eat like an ogre – because in the morning, Donkey’s making waffles! 

The property is built into a tree, with the classic ‘STAY OUT’ and ‘BEWARE OGRE’ signs outside. 

Ogre enthusiasts can request to book this fairytale stay in Shrek’s Swamp beginning 13 October, free of charge – but they will have to cover their own travel to Scotland. 

Once inside, the cosy living room is decked out in wooden furniture, a Shrek-green rug by the fireplace, and an armchair big enough for Donkey.

In the same room is a double bed for Shrek and Fiona to squeeze into. Meanwhile, the bathroom is located 20 metres from the main living area in a standalone facility.

According to the listing, Shrek’s trusty pal Donkey is ‘swamp-sitting’ and opening the iconic location up to the public – where guests can embrace their inner ogre.

The listing reads: ‘Located among the hills of the Scottish Highlands, 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.

‘A former refuge for fairytale creatures, Shrek’s Swamp brings a whole new meaning to the term treehouse.

‘With its clever use of forestry, charmingly rustic interiors, and iconic outhouse, the swamp is certain to offer an experience unlike any other.

‘For £0 a night – a nod to the priceless refuge Shrek’s Swamp has provided fairytale creatures of all kinds – brogres will be able to request to book an exclusive two-night swamp stay for up to three guests October 27-29.

‘During their stay in this spectacularly secluded swamp-scape, guests can relax in the ambiance of ‘earwax candlelight’, kick their feet up with a parfait (everybody likes a parfait!), swap stories around the fire until late in the night, enjoy a stack of freshly made waffles in the morning, and of course, enjoy the ultimate privacy of Shrek’s trusted outhouse (you know the one).

‘With Donkey in charge, guests will have the chance to live their own versions of the layered ogre life for two special, starry nights (minus the torches, pitchforks, and intrusive Duloc Knights).’

Donkey said: ‘Shrek’s Swamp is lovely. Just beautiful. The perfect place to entertain guests.

‘You know what I like about it? Everything. The overgrown landscaping, the modest interiors, the nice boulders, all of it.

‘I can’t wait for guests to experience this muddy slice of paradise for themselves.’

It’s unclear how Airbnb will decide who gets to stay at the property. The listing clarified it is not a contest, and that guests will be responsible for their own travel to and from the site.

Fans will be able to request to book the Airbnb from 13 October at 6 pm.

To honor good childhood memories that last a lifetime, Airbnb will make a one-time donation to the HopScotch Children’s Charity, which provides some of Scotland’s most vulnerable and disadvantaged children with respite breaks through nurturing and dynamic holiday trips.
