So I come to you this evening with something quite different. Arghhh no, not a weekly. I’ve decided to stop promising to post it to save myself the embarassment…I have started it but got tied up working in the cafe and searching for a new house. So yes, it’ll be there when it’s there, even if its title and purpose have now become redundant. Ahhem.
BUT, this other work is pretty awesome! Down in the beautiful county of Suffolk (not biased), near the Anglo Saxon village of West Stow, the Lengyel family have set up shop in the woods renting out four lovely glamping pods. And now they’ve recently received planning permission to go even further….and build a hobbit hole! Yes, a fully earth covered, subterranean dwelling. They plan to remain close to Tolkien’s vision of what a hobbit hole would have looked like, and as you can imagine, that’s going to take a lot of time, effort, and funding.
They’ve therefore decided to set up a kickstarter campaign where they’ll be funding some of the money that will help to make this a reality. Check it out here, and donate it you can!
To help with the campaign, I’ve done some illustrations of what the hobbit hole may look like – have a look!
If you’re a bit of a Tolkien nutter, and you’d like to see one of these in the flesh, help them along and maybe even bag yourself a few nights stay in one!
