The current owners built it in an existing gully to create a fun place for their grandchildren to play and it is decked out with chairs, a desk and a play kitchen behind the circular door.

The most exciting feature that is sure to seal the deal for any Lord of the Rings fan is the hobbit house in the back garden which was built by the current owners in an existing gully
