Fans of J.R.R. Tolkien's epic high-fantasy novels no longer need to trek to New Zealand for a taste of the hobbit life.
Nestled in a small parish in Suffolk, England, "glamping" company West Stow Pods wants to be the first to develop a Middle-Earth inspired hobbit "hole" in the U.K., but they need a little help on their adventure.
Spearheaded by owner Jan Lenguel, the company launched a Kickstarter project to crowdfund £50,000 ($78,116) to build a replica halfling house on their private woodland dell.
The project has received more than $11,000 in funding since its launch on July 17th, though only 23 people have signed up so far for a one-night stay.
Backers who pledge at least £80 ($125) will earn one night in the completed hobbit hole, while donors who dish out more than £700 ($1,094) will receive a five-night stay.
