Bag End - 95% complete

Home of Bilbo, afterwards of Frodo Baggins, and then of Samwise Gamgee and his wife Rosie Cotton.

Where this build once began, deciphering the organic layout of Bag End, creating structure and scale. 

“In a hole in the ground there lived a hobbit.” -Tolkien

minecraft hobbiton Bag End

“I am looking for someone to share in an adventure that I am arranging, and it's very difficult to find anyone.' I should think so — in these parts! We are plain quiet folk and have no use for adventures. Nasty disturbing uncomfortable things! Make you late for dinner!” -Tolkien

"Blunt the knives! Bend the forks! Smash the bottles and burn the corks! Chip the glasses and crack the plates! That's what Bilbo Baggins hates!" - The Hobbit (2012)

"They pillaged the pantry. I'm not even going to tell you what they've done to the bathroom, they all but destroyed the plumbing. I don't understand what are they doing in my house?" - The Hobbit (2012)

Frog Pond - 100% complete

Situated just between the Great Smials and the Woody End this quaint little pond offers travelers a place to stop and rest and watch critters splash about.

Woody End

As we move towards Bag End across the Frog Pond we find ourselves in a small gathering of smials referred to as Woody End.

This Smial sits at a prime location just adjacent to the Frog Pond but unfortunately I've neglected the development of this Smial for some reason.

Galdalf's Cutting

Used in the films as the iconic entrance into Hobbiton. Flanked with tall stone walls it frames a view of Hobbiton revealing most of Hobbiton including, in the distance, Bag End and the Great Tree.


minecraft hobbiton gandalf cutting

This was one of the most visited locations in the build where I would just visit and witness the progress of Hobbiton. Whew, that was a lot of blocks ago.

And once you are through the cutting you are welcomed to some way-finding to help you on your adventuring.

Great Smials

Just beyond the 'Cutting' lies a great mount that houses many of the "Great Smials". The layout of the mound was a little tricky trying to layout a number of smials around a single standalone mound. Some locations had to be tweaked to keep them on a good x/y axis and I had to ensure I'd have enough volume under that mound for all of the interior spaces. This great mound grew several times during the build.

The Main Garden

Built over a great network of underground rivers the crops ensure the Hobbits will have plenty of food to last through the year.
