Bilbo would love it, we reckon.

If you're a fan of the legendary Tolkien franchise, then we've just found your next staycation spot - and you don't have to travel to Middle-earth to get there.

Named 'Hobbits Hollow', this little hamlet is completely inspired by the Hobbit-holes in Lord of the Rings, staying true to the design of the fictional houses with a rounded shape, covered in turf and tucked away in a small farm.

Set in Llanidloes, Wales (not the Shire), you'll be surrounded by chickens, a river, pond and orchard as well as beautiful views of mid Wales. The little getaway spot is equipped with underfloor heating, interesting artwork and other little details to make your stay all the more pleasant.

You'll be spoiled for choice in terms of activities; during the day, you can take long walks along the rolling hills of Mid Wales, stopping by a cafe, pub or restaurant for a rest. In the evenings, feel free to dine on the charcoal BBQ, making use of the private little garden and furniture, before heading to sleep in your king-sized bed.

If you're an avid fisher, you'll be glad to know that the River Severn is only a few steps away, where you can enjoy a relaxing afternoon on the banks.
