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.
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.
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 1.96 inches (5cm), 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 created by the same artists and craftspeople who worked on the movie.
