Peter Jackson - Peter Jackson Has Turned Original Hobbit Home Into A Guest House
Moviemaker Peter Jackson has had to recreate hobbit Bilbo Baggins' home on the set of the Lord Of The Rings prequel - because the original is now a guest house on his farm in New Zealand.
The director was forced to build a replica Bag End cottage for The Hobbit after discovering it would be too troublesome to move the original.
He says, "We've turned it into a guest house so people can actually live and sleep in Bag End. It's up on a farm that we've got, so it wasn't really possible to to drag it back in the studios."
