Lost Hobbit Tribe Discovered in Wales

For five happy years they enjoyed simple lives in their straw and mud huts.

Generating their own power and growing their own food, they strived for self-sufficiency and thrived in homes that looked more suited to the hobbits from The Lord of the Rings.

Then a survey plane chanced upon the ‘lost tribe’… and they were plunged into a decade-long battle with officialdom.” – Mail Online

Hobbit Hutch – Built by James

The Hobbit Hutch-a 56 sq ft vardo/caravan/gypsy wagon with a 20 sq ft porch. Has tiny appliance… faux wood stove… a/c… bed with pull out dining table… and soon the porch will have a propane outdoor shower and cassette toilet hidden away inside a plywood box seat… all surrounded by outdoor privacy curtains.” – Tiny House Swoon

Wouldn’t it be Cool to Live in a Hobbit Town?

The Hobbit scenes from Lord of the Rings Movie Trilogy were filmed on a hillside lot in Matamata, New Zealand. Now the little Hobbit Homes have become a tourist attraction, but also they became homes for some of the sheep from a nearby farm. The interiors of these white structures were never finished because the scenes shot inside were actually filmed on a studio set.” – Freshome

Dan Price and his Hobbit Hole Home

Dan Price really defines success story and is an inspiration for many. His home is a tiny hobbit hole he’s built from recycled materials and natural materials from the two acre property he leases for $100 a year.

“When you hear the word Hobbit, immediately you think small, but I didn’t think this small.  The Hobbit Hole is a “miniscule place of peace” and they aren’t kidding, this house is a whopping 4 feet tall.”

There Be Hobbit Sheep Here

I suspect I’m not the only one who has sometimes yearned to live like a Hobbit. These sheep in New Zealand are living the dream as the current residents of the actual Hobbit village constructed for the Lord of the Rings movies. These tiny houses are no more than frail movie sets, but they do seem to make great little shelters for these contented creatures. Thanks for sending this my way Dav!

One of my readers, Rich, pointed this Oregon based tiny house builder out to me. From the look of things they offer a wide range of small cottages at reasonable prices. Many of the designs look like traditional cottages, not all look like this hobbit house inspired house. Thanks again Rich!
