Ever wanted to live in the world of The Lord Of The Rings?

Perhaps without the orcs…

If you’ve longed dreamed of a peaceful life in The Shire, rejoice, for the perfect Hobbit house has landed on the market.

Tucked away in the woodland of Llanycefn, Pembrokeshire, in Wales, the hand-built home has been designed to burrow into the sloping landscape.

It has 13 sides to make it rounded, and sits on top of 26 interlocking beams, for the full Hobbit property effect.

So from the outside, it looks a lot like a Hobbit house – but it’s big enough for humans.

The home is up for sale for £335,000.

When you enter through the wood stable door, you’ll see the cosy living area, complete with a wood burning stove and arched windows and doors.

Through from there is the kitchen, which has a Belfast sink, cooker, open shelving, and hanging pots and baskets.

A separate building houses the bathroom, which has its own onsite water source, and solar panels on the roof.

It sits on a four-acre plot, and has further outbuildings for livestock.

There’s also a polytunnel for growing produce on the land, so it’s ideal for any aspiring veg-growers pursuing a simpler life.

The 11-year-old home is an original member of the unique community called One Planet Development in Llanycefn, Pembrokeshire.

The project encourages people to live and work on their own land in an affordable and sustainable way.

If you’re keen to buy the home, called Bryn Yr Blodau, you will need to commit to the ethos of the community.

The guidelines aren’t too out-there, mostly centring on having a zero-energy home and setting up renewable energy supplies. It’s all about the environment, basically.

Estate agents Fine and Country said: ‘Bryn Yr Blodau offers a buyer the chance to step away from modern life and reconnect with both nature and a more responsible way of living.

‘Constructed eleven years ago under the One Planet Development scheme, this off grid home is surrounded by around four acres of beautiful grounds.

‘Situated on the slopes of hidden wooded valley, the position fills any visitor with a sense of peace and tranquillity.

‘The roundhouse at the centre of the site is a thoughtfully crafted warm and welcoming space that provides an ideal home to the inhabitants of the land.’
