Making Mealtime Meaningful: Discover how we're giving back with the 12T Cares program →

We’re probably all familiar with the famous book quote, “In a hole in the ground there lived a hobbit.” The way it’s described definitely makes it clear that the hobbit hole is one of comfort and coziness.

As a Tolkien fan, that is something that I would love to be able to bring to life. I’d love my own little hobbit hole in the form of a quaint little cottage, but I assume I’m not the only one.

There is one man in Tomich, Scotland, who has created his very own hobbit house, and it’s incredible! According to SWNS, the retired octogenarian woodworker, Stuart Grant, is the one who built himself a house back in 1984.

He has called it The Hobbit House. Grant loves his home, and for the most part, it’s a home that allows him to live largely off the grid.

But what is most amazing, is the fact that Grant isn’t even a Tolkien fan! He has never seen either The Hobbit film series or the Lord of the Rings movies. He also hasn’t read any of the classic books written by J.R.R. Tolkien.

However, by some amazing twist, he has been able to replicate the style to a tee as he rested the small, historic cottage where he lives.

As shared in the video, “Great-grandad Stuart Grant, 89, moved into the cottage he bought as a wreck with no roof and no doors in 1984, while he was renovating a house. But he found it so satisfying doing DIY on the quirky outbuilding which dated back 200 years, that he decided to make it his home.”
