If you ever dreamt of living in a fairytale, now is your chance. It just may not be the story you were anticipating…

For a two nights this month, you will be transported to Far, Far Away, courtesy of Airbnb.

The home-sharing platform is offering guests a stay at Shrek’s Swamp, but it is not the green ogre who is renting it out. Instead, your host will be his partner-in-crime, Donkey.

“Shrek’s Swamp is lovely. Just beautiful. The perfect place to entertain guests,” claims Donkey. “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.”

The swamp, which is covered in mud and moss, is located among the hills of the Scottish Highlands. There, guests will find Shrek’s rustic treehouse, and, of course, the iconic outhouse. Expect to swap stories around the fire, indulge in a parfait, and relax amid earwax candlelight.

Up to three guests will be able to enjoy the grand stay from October 27-29. Bookings open at 6PM (BST) on October 13, for the enticing price of £0 a night. 

And if that wasn’t incentive enough, Donkey is making waffles in the morning!
