Scattered among the grassy hills of Hobbiton like a purse full of lost coins, the bright round doors of many dozen hobbit-holes shine in bright, summery hues, each home to a Hobbit or family of the little people.

As diverse as the rosy-cheeked Hobbits themselves, every smial, as hobbit-holes are known, reflects the unique personality of its inhabitant and nestles into the hillside amid a sea of lush greenery.

Below Bag End a narrow path snakes its way around the Hill through thick green grass, past hedgerows and fruit trees. Halfway down Hill Lane a tall brick chimney and daisy-yellow door mark the entrance to number 16, a modest but tidy hobbit abode with an outlook over the Water toward the Green Dragon Inn.

Because of the relationship we have with all the production parts of the process, we have access to everything from concept drawings to set plans, which is really handy when making things like the Hobbit Holes.

Each an individual dwelling, the Hobbit holes lend themselves splendidly to creative placement in your cabinet. With a flat back and shallow depth of only 55mm, they can be placed on mantles, cornices, shelves and in windows.

This gorgeous little environment is an exacting miniature replica of the movie set that can be visited at Hobbiton in Matamata, New Zealand. It was designed by the same artists and craftspeople who worked on the movie.

16 Hill Lane is an Open Edition piece. Please note: This miniature environment was designed and prototyped here at the Workshop. Images are of a pre-production prototype. Each piece is hand painted and slight variations will occur.

  1. Hill Lane
    My latest Hobbit Hole to add to my collection. Although the chimney and the other bricks are a little more brownish than they look on any photo, this is a beautiful small smial.
    Details are wonderful.

    Maybe it is a little small but and certainly not as deep as some other models, it is a pretty little hole that will cheer you up anytime.

  5. Please don\'t stop!
    I absolutely love this hobbit hole.
    They are just small pieces but the details put in them are so rewarding. I hope Weta continues to make each and every one. Anyone with a little hobbit inside them should have each of these in their collection.
