This Four Bedroom Home Comes With Its Very Own Hobbit House In The Back Garden

This Four Bedroom Home Comes With Its Very Own Hobbit House In The Back Garden

Fantasy fans, Middle Earth is calling. A Welsh Hobbit House could be yours for £385,000.

Yep, this dinky low-lying home invites you to live the life of a Tolkien character. Built into the grassy curve of a rolling hill, it's situated in the lush landscape of Powys, Wales.

The wooden frontage is painted teal green, and there's even a trademark circular door - presumably to peep fearfully through when the Nine Riders come galloping over the horizon.

Guests will step inside to find a cosy interior fitted with oak panels and a wood-burning stove. We have a vision of curling up in front of the fire to warm our toes with a cup of tea and a dog-eared copy of The Lord of the Rings.

The quirky property, listed for sale with Clee Tompkinson & Francis, is included in the sale of a four-bedroom property.

Right now, the Hobbit House is used as part of a successful lettings business by the current owners (genius!) and located in the grounds of the main house, Castle Cottage.

Castle Cottage has a special history of its own, being a former granary which served the Castle Inn.

Rightmove's property expert Miles Shipside said: "Until now, The Shire felt like a fantasy land that we could only ever see at the cinema or on the television, but this remarkable property brings it to life."

"The imagination of the current owners to create something so special and so unique is really quite incredible and I'm sure Castle Cottage will garner a lot of interest over the coming weeks and months."
