Hobbity Domes

15ft in diameter, big enough for two tall adult Hobbits (up to about 6’2”– so not strictly Hobbits at all!!!) and a couple of smalls (or 3 at a push – if they really are small!).

All 3 Hobbity domes, collectively known as ‘The Pebbles’, sit near to each other in a corner of the site the gardeners call ‘Bedrock’. We call them Sandstone, Flintstone and Bambam!

And this winter we’ve been at it again, adding yet more layers of coloured clay, both in the Domes themselves and the ensuites too. And we’ve punched three great big holes in the rooves which means more sunlight can now flood in. All in all, we now think they are looking fantastic. For the aficionados – dont panic, they are still cavelike – just now a lot brighter.

Each of The Pebbles has a tiny kitchen shelter and they all have en-suites. These are private to each dome but, unlike elsewhere on the site, not directly attached, being 2 steps up outside each dome. As with all the domes, they have proper loos and showers with water that you heat for yourself, so you can luxuriate in your own private little, cave-like downpour.

The main domes are sunk 3ft into the ground, they’re insulated with cork and heated by woodburners, which makes them our warmest domes in the winter and our coolest domes in the Summer – some would argue they are our coolest domes – period!!

Beware though, they are properly cavelike and finished in mud (adobe) and clay so prepare yourself to meet your inner Hobbit – or Fred!

Yabba dabba doo!!!

Want to know how all this happened?
Building the Hobbity domes was a bit of a saga. So we’ve compiled it into a 9 part tale – almost as gripping as the book itself – or the films? *!*?@

So, if you’re feeling strong start here…
