Spend a night in Bilbo’s cottage in the Shire

In the event of the tenth anniversary of The Hobbit, some lucky fans can now spend a night in Bilbo Baggins’ cottage.

It’s been ten years since the first part of The Hobbit trilogy was released, and to mark the occasion, Airbnb has come up with a very special offer: some lucky fans will be able to spend a few nights, if not in the Shire, but in Bilbo Baggins’ film dwelling.

The original filming location, Hobbiton in New Zealand, has been open to the public before, but the hobbit-sized underground dwellings have never been used as accommodation. The area of more than ten square kilometers really does look like it has been cultivated by hard-working hobbits, as it is run as a farm, of course, with the aim of attracting tourists rather than growing crops. Most of the 44 hobbit huts are unfurnished, but now Bilbo’s residence has been transformed into a home for visitors.

Reservations are open from 13 December on Airbnb, and you can book three slots for next March for just $6.30 per night.
