Now You Can Spend Nights in Hobbit House Thanks to Airbnb

Air bnb / Hobbiton

Airbnb is going to give some fans the opportunity to go spend a couple of nights in the Hobbiton Movie Set.

Hobbiton co-founder Russell Alexander is going to let up to 12 guests scattered across three 2-night stays for a mere NZD $10 a night! If you’re interested, you’ll have to rush on over to the Airbnb listing on December 14 at 10 AM NZDT and pray you can get one of the deals. If you’re lucky to get it, the stays will take place March 2-4, March 9-11, and March 16-18.

Nestled in the picturesque pastures of New Zealand’s Waikato region on a 2,500-acre working farm, the property’s rolling, green hills – bear a striking similarity to The Shire™ as described by J. R. R. Tolkien in The Lord of the Rings, and captivated Sir Peter Jackson’s movie scouts more than two decades ago. The team quickly realized the Hobbits had found their home – and this holiday season, it could be yours.

Talking about the opportunity, Alexander said:

For more than two decades, we’ve welcomed millions of passionate fans to the Hobbiton Movie Set, but never before has anyone had the opportunity to spend a night in Middle-earth. I am delighted to share the beauty of my family’s farm and pleased to be hosting this iconic location on Airbnb for fans from around the world.

Fans are sure to have an awesome time if they’re able to go. You’ll have admission to 44 Hobbit Holes, The Millhouse, The Green Dragon Inn, and more! Creative director Brian Massey has curated a “cozy overnight accommodation” at The Millhouse, private access to a personal Hobbit Hole, an evening banquet in The Green Dragon Inn “featuring beef and ale stew, whole roast chickens, freshly baked bread, and plenty of ale, plus Second Breakfast™ and Elevenses™ served daily,” a private tour, and a lot more. You will have to be able to accept the following rules though:

House Rules

  • No Unexpected Parties, please – unless with Gandalf and company.

  • Bare feet are allowed but wipe them first.

  • Magical rings are permitted, but keep them secret, keep them safe.

  • Pony parking is provided only at The Green Dragon Inn.

  • Straying far at night is discouraged, thanks to multiple troll sightings of late.

  • No pets are allowed, except Pickles the resident Hobbiton cat.

  • Never laugh at live dragons…
