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.
Overlooking the village from the hill at the end of Bagshot Row is Bag End, the stately underground abode of the eccentric Hobbit Bilbo Baggins. Bilbo widely acknowledged about town as having ‘cracked’ some years ago, and his cousin and ward Frodo Baggins, whom he shares his home with, is certainly in the process of cracking. The Bagginses, it is said, consort with Wizards, Dwarves, and other folk with dangerous ideas. Bag End is a museum, its rooms stuffed with treasures, trinkets and oddities accumulated over the years by Bilbo either on his adventures or as gifts from his peculiar company.
But extraordinary as its occupants and contents might be, the abiding atmosphere of Bag End is one of lazy comfort, from the pretty but slightly overgrown gardens that hug its eaves to the welcoming clutter inside it labyrinthine chambers. Sprawling around the Hill beneath the shade of an old oak tree whose roots twist through its halls, the grand smial reflects the gentle good humour of its hosts and the universal Hobbit love of simple pleasures. There have been Bagginses living under the hill for as long as anyone can remember, and there always will be.

Bag End on the Hill
