It may look like it’s straight out of Middle-earth. But this Hobbit hideaway is actually in south Wales.

The one-bedroomed property, set in 80 acres of woodland near the town of St Clears, Carmarthenshire, is on the market for £475,000.

But anyone who wants to live like Bilbo Baggins should be aware that Lord of the Rings fans frequently turn up hoping to catch a glimpse of the site.

The unique house, owned by a 97-year-old, was built in 2005.

The property description reads: ‘A very rare opportunity to acquire a classic Hobbit House set among mature and semi-mature ancient oak woodland with a river boundary in the valley bottom.’

It describes the house as ‘full of character and very cosy’. It also includes a stone workshop.

The property generates its own electricity and sources water from a natural spring nearby. It is heated by a woodburner – which can use logs from the surrounding woodland.
