In a hole in the ground there lived a Hobbit. Not a nasty, dirty, wet hole. It was a Hobbit hole, and that means comfort.
Bright round doors in summery hues dot the lush, grassy hillsides of Hobbiton like wildflowers. Behind each doorway, comfortably appointed burrows wind into earth: each one home to a Hobbit, or a family of the Shire’s rosy-cheeked little-folk.
Every Hobbit hole is unique, expressing the personality of its inhabitants with colour, prettily adorned gardens, furniture, and the rustic debris of everyday life. One of the few abodes tucked close to the water’s edge, this Hobbit Hole allows a serene look out along the peaceful lake. Accompany this with the soft smell of lavender from the garden just outside the door and one could not wish for a more tranquil home.
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.
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.
Please note: This miniature environment was designed and prototyped here at the Workshop. Images are of a pre-production prototype. This product is hand painted and variations will occur.
