Airbnb lists Shrek Swamp in Scottish Highlands where you can experience life like an ogre
Airbnb is offering up an exclusive two-night stay at an incredible real life ‘Shrek’s Swamp’ in the Scottish Highlands this Halloween, and you could be living in the iconic ogre’s home for free!
This Halloween, Donkey is swamp-sitting for his best pal Shrek, and he’s rolling out the welcome mat to host fairytale creatures of all kinds while he’s there.
Fans of the smash hit DreamWorks movie series will no doubt be desperate to stay at the swamp home in the Highlands, which is owned and operated by Ardverikie Estate. The free offer is for a two night stay on October 27-29 for up to three people aged five and over, with booking open on October 13 at 6pm.
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.
“Shrek’s Swamp is lovely. Just beautiful. The perfect place to entertain guests,” Donkey said. “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.”
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!)
The incredible swamp is certain to offer an experience unlike any other for Shrek fans to enjoy.
Prince William and Kate Middleton's 2023 Christmas card was released on Saturday and royal fans are all saying the same thing about the photo, which features Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis…
The gulf between Israel and the US on one hand - and Arab states and much of the rest of the world on the other - couldn't really be greater. With the US diplomatic backing, and with more of its ammunition supplies being shipped to Israel, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has made it clear that to achieve his goals of rescuing hostages - but more importantly, in reality, the destruction of Hamas - then a ceasefire is a non-starter. Despite their admirable work, in truth they won't get very far for the time being because neither of the protagonists - Hamas and Israel - seem awfully interested in a ceasefire anyway.
We need to talk about Ukraine. While the world’s attention has been focused on the war between Israel and Hamas, grim tremors have been shaking that rich, black soil. Ukraine’s counteroffensive has failed – or, in Volodymyr Zelensky’s words, “did not achieve the desired results”.
A deal over the post-Brexit status of the British territory of Gibraltar depends on agreement over use of the airport, Spain's foreign minister, Jose Manuel Albares, said in an interview published on Sunday. The status of Gibraltar and how to police the border with Spain have been points of contention since Britain voted in 2016 to leave the European Union. The UK, Spain and the EU are due to hold further talks on the matter on Wednesday.
