The bespoke, hand-built single-storey cottage, is designed to resemble the iconic homes created by author J.R.R. Tolkien almost 70 years ago. Situated near the village of Mitcheldean on the edge of the Forest of Dean, fans will feel like they have been transported to Middle Earth.

Made from timber from actual forest itself, this cosy accommodation boasts plenty of character with wooden beams and floors, stained glass windows and a hand-made kitchen.

Outside lies a private patio area and garden where you can enjoy the views around the last surviving ancient woodlands and an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

Hobbit enthusiasts can plan there own journey around the forest by visiting the market town of Ross-on-Wye or take horseback trails, go caving, fishing or even a high wire rope course.

There is even the historic city of Gloucester, home to Victorian Docklands and a Norman Cathedral, the cloisters of which were used as a location in the Harry Potter films.

Earlier this month, Amazon Prime announced that a new television series of The Lord of the Rings will be filmed in the UK with a budget of £336 million.

Amazon said that the switch to the UK “aligns with the studio’s strategy of expanding its production footprint and investing in studio space across” the country.

New Zealand was the location for the Lord of the Rings trilogy and the The Hobbit films, with the new series set to debut in September 2022.

With 4.4 stars out of five on Trustpilot, it’s easy to see why this rural retreat is soughtafter, with one reviewer saying: “We were greeted with a basket of goodies and nothing was too much trouble.

“Richard even gave us a lift when we had broken down. The cottage was such an inviting and quite luxurious space, where we very quickly settled.

“The location was beautiful, and a quiet retreat that was just what we needed. I’ve never slept so well away from home. We will be returning as soon as possible. “

Another person commented: “It was just what we needed for a get away. The folly was cozy and bright at the same time.

“The kitchen was well equipped, bed was comfy and shower worked well! We only wished we could have stayed longer.”

Despite the limited availability for the fantasy-themed cottage, accommodation provider, Snaptrip!, says that August bank holiday bookings are still available.

For two nights (August 27-29) Brookbank Folly’s Hobbit House costs around £407 but fear not if you miss out, there’s plenty of bookings to reserve later in the year, or into 2022.

So if you are a fan of Frodo, Samwell, Gandalf and the gang, head over to Snaptrip! to book your Lord of the Rings getaway.
