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.
Crowned by the resplendent Bag End, Bagshot Row is dotted with a handful of more modest dwellings, bearing wreaths of flowers and painted door faces. 3 Bagshot Row is where notable occupants Samwise Gamgee and his wife Rosie Cotton reside after the War of the Ring.
Because of the relationship we have with all the production parts of the process, we access to everything from concept drawings to set plans, which is really handy when making things like Hobbit Holes.

Due to customer feedback, we have updated the name of this Hobbit Hole to more accurately reflect its portrayal in the Lord of the Rings film trilogy. The discontinued version can be found here.
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 may occur.
A NOTE ON OPEN EDITION COLLECTIBLES
The Smial of Samwise Gamgee is an Open Edition piece, meaning it is not restricted to a specific number of reproductions. However, this does not guarantee Wētā Workshop will continue to produce the statue in the future. We recommend purchasing your Open Edition statue early to avoid disappointment. Should you miss out, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Demand will determine if this collectible is reproduced.
Please note: You may see a number on your shipping carton that says "0123/1,000" - this is just the serial number of your piece in its particular production run and does not mean it's a limited edition.
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.
