fans of The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings probably know Hobbiton—the “hobbit village” setting designed for the film series. It is nestled on a 2,500 acre farm in the heart of Matamata, a small town in New Zealand. Now people will be able to experience The Shire in an entirely new way, as The Hobbiton opens one of its charming, bespoke homes to the public across Airbnb.

Guests will have the option of spending the night in The Millhouse, a two-bedroom house that sleeps up to four people. Not only that, but they will have access to the Hobbit 44 holes, the Green Dragon Inn and spectacular nature views of the lake and lush green pastures. “For over two decades we have welcomed millions of passionate fans to Hobbiton Movie Set, but never before has anyone had the opportunity to spend a night in Middle-earth. I am thrilled to share the beauty of my family’s farm and thrilled to host this iconic place on Airbnb for fans around the world,” said host Russell Alexander.

The Millhouse features a cozy fireplace, writing nook, and interior decor curated by the film’s creative director, Brian Massey. When it’s time to eat, guests can enjoy “an evening banquet at the Green Dragon Inn with a feast of beef and beer stew, whole roast chickens, fresh breads and plenty of beer, as well as a second breakfast and Elevenses served daily”. Each stay also comes with a private behind-the-scenes tour of the Hobbiton film set.

The Hobbiton Airbnb will be available for three two-night stays from March 2 to March 4, March 9 to March 11, and March 16 to March 18, 2023. You can make your reservations through Airbnb as of December 14, 2022. All guests must have a verified Airbnb account, positive review history, and be over 18 years old.
