Hobbit House Set In 80 Acres Of Woodland In Rural Wales Goes On Sale

If you fancy channelling your inner Bilbo Baggins, you can now shack up in a unique 'Hobbit House' in rural Wales that has just gone on the market.

The remote home is set among 80 acres of 'predominantly mature and semi mature' ancient oak woodland near Carmarthen, with a river boundary in the valley bottom - no doubt making it feel just like The Shire.

As well as being a haven for nature lovers, the house itself is 'full of character and very cosy', according to its description on Rightmove, where its asking price is listed as £475,000.

Built in 2005, the house uses a generator with 'a very large battery pack and inverter' for electricity, while water comes from a spring in the woods.

The current resident uses a dongle on his laptop for internet usage, but the heating set-up is much more old school via a woodburner.

Inside the main Hobbit House is an open plan living area, lounge area and mezzanine, with a covered terrace outside with wooden flooring and plenty of storage space.

There's also a stone workshop complete with shower area, WC and hand wash basin, along with a separate first floor area, and elsewhere on the property there are three round houses that can be used for 'further recreation, get-togethers, barbeques or storage'.

"There is a beautiful stone workshop within a short walk to the house, which itself has a shower room and full workshop facilities," the listing says.

"Up in the top part of the woodland there are also 3 further Round Houses of varying sizes which previously have been used for leisure and educational purposes. (Indeed the owner is still paid by Carmarthenshire County Council to allow Woodland Activities for local school children here.)"

The online description adds that the house holds 'lots of future possibilities' and is 'perfectly suited to nature lovers or woodland based businesses'.

Located near a hamlet that sits between St Clears and Tenby, it's also only a short drive to the beaches at Pendine and Tenby, meaning you can have your rural fix without being too far away from the buzz of the popular south Wales seaside.
