Integrated with Nature

We specialise in creating eco-friendly, low impact spaces.

Integrated with nature.

We design, manufacture and install.

From our workshop in Mansfield, Nottinghamshire we cover the whole of the UK and beyond. Catering for the leisure, education, residential, and commercial markets, we offer a breath of fresh air into the construction industry.

We build durable and versatile Hobbit Houses which are perfect for everything from garden entertainment spaces, to yoga rooms, home offices, glamping pods and just about anything you can imagine!

Our dedicated team can help take you from your initial ideas and designs to a fully installed and bespoke Hobbit House, made from eco-friendly materials, covered by our 125-year guarantee.

We offer free installation including a real grass roof as standard!

 

Free installation

We can manufacture most of the elements of your new Hobbit House in our workshop, and then simply deliver and install.

Eco-friendly

We use recycled waste plastic to form our High Density Polyethylene structures, no concrete foundations required.

Free design consultation

Our team can design your dream Hobbit House using the latest 3D Computer Aided Design (CAD)

Durable & diverse

Our products require no assembly, no concrete base, and no planning permission (more information below).

125-year guarantee

We design, manufacture and install environmentally friendly Hobbit Houses that are built to last 125 years, guaranteed.

Energy efficient

The main structure of our Hobbit Houses works like the insulation in your home, the addition of soil and grass acts as one of the best forms of natural insulation.

No maintenance

We offer a 125 year guarantee on the main structure and our ethos for quality construction and only using the best materials means your Hobbit House will last a lifetime with little or no maintenance.

Low running costs

We can retrofit solar panels or other forms of renewable energy to your Hobbit House, meaning your Hobbit House can be off-grid if required.

What can a Hobbit House be used for?

Our Hobbit Houses have an extremely wide range of uses, from camping / glamping pods, permanent dwellings, garden offices, classrooms, hot tub rooms, playhouses, man (or woman) caves, private home cinemas or gyms and much, much more!  Our Hobbit Houses are incredibly sturdy, strong enough to be built into a hillside, or even underground.

Our modular system means there’s almost no limit to the shape or size of your Hobbit House.  Choose from T, Y or X-shaped layouts to create your own unique structure suiting your own individual requirements.

Have something else in mind?  No problem – you’re welcome to get in touch and discuss your ideas, because at Hobbit House Ltd., we love nothing more than new concepts and challenges!

Can I have a real grass roof on my Hobbit House?

Unlike anything else on the market, our Hobbit Houses come with real grass roofs as standard.  Why reduce the size of your garden when you can increase it?  Studies have shown that having more green space improves air quality & mental wellbeing, helping to reduce anxiety levels and the incidence of depression!

Don’t want real grass?  No problem!  We’re happy to consider other options including sedum, wildflower or even artificial grass.

As well as looking totally awesome, a real grass roof is an excellent natural insulator, keeping you warm through those long winters!

Are Hobbit Houses made from sustainable materials?

Yes!  Our Hobbit Houses are unlike anything else on the market.  At Hobbit House Ltd., we’re proud to take the term ‘eco-friendly’ to the next level!  Rather than just using sustainable materials, we use recycled waste plastic to form high density polyethylene which in turn provides the basis for our amazing 125-year guarantee.

Most other structures require concrete foundations which, along with being both expensive and time-consuming, also have a negative impact on the environment.  Our Hobbit Houses are installed without the need for foundations!

Can my Hobbit House be connected to mains electricity?

Yes!  We can arrange for your new Hobbit House to be connected to mains electricity (and water too if required – see our brochure for our range of fabulous wet rooms).  If your design includes the need for wastewater disposal and heating that too can be arranged.  Just mention it to our team when you contact us.

Do I need planning permission for my Hobbit House?

In short, probably not.  Hobbit Houses can be installed under ‘permitted development’ rules, based on the size and shape of your Hobbit House.  Planning permission is not required under these rules.  If you are planning a larger project or business venture, planning permission may be required.  We will be pleased to advise you and can help with obtaining your planning permission too!

A hobbit house can be categorised as a caravan :

Section 29 (1) of the Caravan Sites and Control of Development Act, 1960 defined a caravan as:

“… Any structure designed or adapted for human habitation which is capable of being moved from one place to another (whether being towed, or by being transported on a motor vehicle or trailer)

Caravan Act – You do not need planning permission to park a caravan in your driveway or garden as long as it is being used as an annex of your home. … If the caravan becomes the main part or your only dwelling, you need to obtain planning permission from your local authority.

Speak to our team for more information.

Disclaimer: Whilst Hobbit house Ltd. is pleased to offer advice, it remains the customer’s responsibility to ensure the relevant planning permissions are obtained. 

Are your Hobbit Houses really guaranteed for 125 years?

Unlike wooden structures that may last 15-20 years with regular maintenance including roof replacement and timber treatment, our unique high density polyethylene structure is guaranteed to last 125 years.  The structure itself will outlive Bilbo, although the doors and interior will likely need replacing along the journey and are unfortunately not covered by the guarantee.

Can my Hobbit House be a permanent dwelling?

Absolutely!  If you have a plot of land available, why not design and build your own cosy two or three bed Hobbit House to your own design, complete with kitchen and bathroom facilities for a fraction of the price of a traditional build?

Can I choose between different sizes for my Hobbit House?

We’re pleased to offer our structures in different sizes to suit your needs, our most popular being the 2.3 m internal diameter which can be placed in your garden without the need for planning permission.

The next size up is the 2.6 m diameter which does not require planning permission if it is at least 2 m from your  boundary.  We also have a smaller size for children’s playhouses and larger diameters all the way to 3 m.

Want something more interesting?  We can join our modular units together to create different layouts T, Y or X-shaped forming amazing interconnecting layouts.  Why not let your imagination run wild and speak to a member of our helpful team today?
