Grab your torches and pitchforks–Donkey is looking after Shrek’s swamp this October and he’s preparing morning waffles for fairytale creatures of all kinds!
That’s right! Shrek fans will be able to request to book an exclusive two-night swamp stay for up to three guests between October 27 and 29.
Ogre enthusiasts from near and far need only travel to the hills of the Scottish Highlands–quite the journey, we know, but worthwhile for an experience like this–where they’ll be met with Shrek’s mud-laden, moss-covered, murky-watered swamp.
A former refuge for fairytale creatures, the secluded haven is fit for any solitude-seeking ogre.
It’s complete with charmingly rustic interiors, the relaxing ambiance of earwax candlelight, and, of course, the chance to make use of Shrek’s trusted outhouse (that’s not a joke, the bathroom is located in a standalone facility a short walk from the main living area).
Donkey himself stated:
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.
And, with Donkey in charge, now is your chance to live your own version of the layered ogre life for two special, starry nights.
Guests can request to book a fairytale stay in Shrek’s Swamp beginning Friday, October 13 at 1 p.m. EST.
The exclusive two-night swamp stay itself is free–a nod to the priceless refuge Shrek’s Swamp has provided fairytale creatures in need–though guests are responsible for their own travel to and from Scotland.
But who wouldn’t want to stay up late swapping stories around the fire and wake up to a stack of freshly made waffles in the morning, even if it does mean traveling to Scotland?!
Guests can view the listing and request the chance to stay in the swamp (beginning Friday, October 13) here.
A word to those lucky enough to score the stay–don’t mind the “BEWARE” signs, they’re likely just there for decoration.
