JRR Tolkien fans thirsting for an experience in a Hobbit house can always go to New Zealand’s Hobbiton. However, you can’t get inside the adorable houses or even stay overnight. There’s a fix for that — Northshire in North Yorkshire.
Thirty-seven-year-old Carol Cavendish first welcomed guests to her Hobbit house three years ago. Since then, more people are flocking this holiday home, not only for its Lord of the Rings vibe but also because it offers a stunning view of the sea.
Carol and her 32-year-old husband, Karl, built the holiday home together.
You can stay in this cozy home for £200 (about $272) a night.
This Hobbit house has already welcomed vacationers from New York and New Zealand.

This is your next dreamy home away from home.
Tolkien fanatics will definitely love this place, which, by the way, has round stained glass windows. Overall, Carol has done a fantastic job with the interior design. That’s not just the awesome part. Carol revealed to Metro that they plan to build 19 more Hobbit houses on the property.
The entrepreneur is not stopping at LOTR-themed houses. Harry Potter-themed holiday homes are also being planned. There’s even a plan to build The Great Hall and Hagrid’s house.
“The plan is to build 19 more Hobbit houses and a range of Harry Potter themed rooms and houses for guests to stay in. We have seen huge demand to stay in the properties. People have told me it is a “little piece of heaven” and we often get comments which say it is like stepping away from reality.”
You’ll understand why this holiday home is described by tourists as a “little piece of heaven.”
This love for all things fantasy-related is brought about by Carol’s unhappy childhood.
She shared that she was a dyslexic when she was a child. She ended up reading fantasy books and fairy tales to remedy her dyslexia. She’s always been a fan of those kinds of stories.
“As a child I saw the characters as my friends. ‘I absolutely love what I do and what we offer. Money is a great side effect but for me, it is all about fulfilling dreams.”
Carol’s fantasy homes are not only limited to Britain.
She hopes to build them in New Zealand.

Western Australia’s ‘Most Haunted’ Building Rebrands Itself To Attract More Tourists
The place wants to prove that it has more to offer other than tales of horror.
While Oakabella Homestead has successfully marketed itself as the most haunted building in Western Australia - thanks to the tales of lost souls and malevolent spirits that once intrigued its guests - its new owners believe that its high time for its image to be changed.
The Oakabella Homestead was built in 1851, or 10 years earlier than its neighboring town, Northampton 460km from Perth, in the picturesque Chapman Valley. With the site’s eerie history, which includes multiple deaths including that of a 3-year old child and a worker who shot himself, it is easy to understand why its previous owners made money from ghost tours and scary stories....
