Hobbit House With Gorgeous Sea View Should Be Your Next Holiday Home Destination

People say this house offers “a little piece of heaven.”

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.

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.

40 Illegal Photos of North Korea That Kim Jong-un Doesn’t Want the World to See

There is a reason why the Supreme Leader wants to isolate the country.

A photographer by the name of Eric Lafforgue had the chance to experience what it is like to live in North Korea. Being able to visit the country six times already, he managed to capture images that were actually forbidden to take and/or were asked to be deleted. These are simply the kind of photos that the Supreme Leader Kim Jong-un does not want the world to see.

At first, Lafforgue was interested in being a casual tourist in the communist country. But as the time went on, he began to reveal its only façade. And he wanted to go beyond what common people think of the nation, from catching a domestic glimpse of the land to how the regime completely reigns. Eric admitted that, like any other tourist, he was not allowed to take pictures of the police and the army, among others.

Thanks to his 300mm zoom lens and a comfortable sitting position at the back of his bus, he was able to take as many shots as he can. “As soon as they were opening a new area to visit, I tried to go and see it,” he said.

Well, without further ado, here the photos captured by Eric. Enjoy!
