According to director Peter Jackson (the genius behind the Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit trilogies), he fell in “love at first sight” with this working farm in New Zealand as the future site of Hobbiton. Here, 37 hobbit holes were created, famous for their lifelike and detailed design, a mill, and a double-arched bridge that was left to grow weeds through it for a year to make it look more authentic. The “Bag End” hobbit hole is home to the famous characters Bilbo Baggins and Frodo Baggins - you’ve probably seen pictures of their delightful and bright exterior on social media.
Take A Family Tour
Hobbiton is arguably a more enchanting experience than Disneyland, and open for families to take incredible tours. Experiences include an evening banquet at dusk, having a drink at the Green Dragon Inn, staying overnight at a farm and sleeping like a hobbit, or having a private tour of the hobbit holes and of New Zealand’s most beautiful scenery. We know where we’re going on our next family holiday!
