hobbit house

hobbit cottage 1

If you live in Los Angeles and can afford $2,595 a month for rent, you could live in a cottage that looks like it’s right out of a storybook. This cozy home was created by Disney artist Joseph Lawrence and is known as “The Hobbit’s House.” It’s listed on Craigslist with plenty of photos and has features such as a stone fireplace, stained glass windows, ponds, and a bar. It doesn’t look huge (it’s just two bedrooms and one bath), but it’s oozing with charm.

Charlie Hague and Megan Williams built an enchanting hobbit style home on privately owned land in Glandwr, North Pembrokeshire. They live there with their one-year-old son, and the home is tucked away and secluded. They couldn’t hide from the the big bad planning commission though.

Rules are rules, and the couple didn’t obtain permits or permission to move forward with the build. It’s incredibly unfortunate because the home looks gorgeous, and it’s obvious a lot of work went into it. Hague and Williams tried to appeal, but it was dismissed by a planning inspector. Iwan Lloyd ruled the home harmed “the character and appearance of the countryside.” What a load of rubbish. The home couldn’t look more country and cozy if it tried.

Hobbit Hole trailer

It’s time to go on a journey, and the best way to start is with a camping trailer that looks like a hobbit hole! Redditor samm1t came up with this impressive design, and it took two months of evenings and weekends to build. It looks tiny but just like a hobbit hole, looks can be deceiving. The trailer fits a small mattress and shelving units with a little cook top. If I had a camping trailer like this, I’d go all the time and I might make everyone with me cosplay as Lord of the Rings characters.

Check out the inside of the trailer after the break.

Hobbit Hole litter box

Does your feline have discerning taste and enjoy second breakfasts? If so, you need to upgrade the litter box to a Hobbit Hole. It’s not a real product yet, but it wouldn’t be the only Hobbit structure made for animals – remember these chicken coops?

IF Industries posted the design, and I imagine that the mossy roof would come right off so you could get in to scoop. You could probably use real grass and moss on the entire structure, too. Your cat will be in heaven. If the meowing starts to sound like “my preciousss” though, it’s a good idea to leave the house immediately.

Protip: your chickens secretly want to live in the Shire in tidy hobbit holes. The folks at My Pet Chicken think that your feathered friends would like this space, and I agree. Look how cute these little houses are! They come in three different sizes and with options like a linoleum floor insert that makes clean up easy. Your chickens have 4′ roosting space, and everyone will be jealous of them. Including humans.

See more photos of the best chicken coops that ever existed after the break.

Treehouses are so last century. Now you can buy your child (or yourself) a cozy Hobbit hole playhouse. The designs vary, but they range from 10′ to 12′ wide and occupy from 35-50 square feet. Combine that with the fact that they are 6’3″ tall on the inside and you’ll understand why these playhouses are definitely better suited for Hobbit-sized occupants.

Motivated by disgust over home builders intent on giving people as little as possible for as much money as possible, Simon Dale obtained a free plot of land and moved his family to a hillside in Wales, England where he proceeded to build a real life “Hobbit house” over a four month period for just £3,000.

As a testament to their love for all things Tolkien, Steve Michaels and his wife Christine built a real-life Hobbit house in the hillsides of northwest Montana. The $410,000 retreat acts as a tourist guesthouse, complete with a modern king-size bedroom, designer kitchen with customized granite counters, HD Blu-Ray television set, XM Radio, three phones and WiFi—all for a fairly reasonable $245 a night.

The house was completed last fall, and since then only 14 visitors have booked the location – possibly because pets are not allowed, and until recently, neither were children. Check out the video after the break to learn more.
