Take sneak peek at 16 pictures inside 'magical' Northamptonshire hobbit house

With foreign holidays looking increasingly doubtful this year, Brits are searching for holidays closer to home.

But has a Hobbit house on Northamptonshire’s very own doorstep ever crossed your mind?

The unique Hobbit house, in Dodford, is one of the properties featured on Canopy & Stars, offering couples a magical retreat for two – with its own pizza oven and chunky log walls.

First the idea was a bench, then an arbour and then an octagonal summerhouse but none of them seemed enough.

Finally, the owner, Amanda, wanted to replicate a mystical Middle Earth staycation in her favourite place, near her auntie Annie’s flower beds and vegetable patches and the result is magical.

Costs for the roundhouse start from £90 per night and include one superking day bed, and although it’s set up for two adults, there is one small double sofa bed for children, too.
