We are a Fairytale Shire with various accommodations, including the only real Hobbit Houses in the world, Gypsy caravans, Shepherds huts, Story Book holiday cottage, caravan and camping, etc. We will soon be starting to build Hagrids hut from the Harry Potter films; again, as far as we know, we will be the only people in the world to have a real Hagrids hut Our yurt cafe will be ready for summer 2016 and we start our North Shire Enchanted weddings from early 2017. We are a young family with passion and drive for creating the most magical place for families. We came with nothing and have worked hard to get to where we are now. We value our customers very much and do try to make people very happy as we get a lot out of that, especially seeing children (large and small ) with huge smiles of excitement on their faces; that is just awesome. We do what we love and we love what we do ;)
