An exciting new venture is coming to the Fraserburgh area.

The High Seas Hobbit House, set in the tranquillity of rural Aberdeenshire with dramatic cliff top scenery and stunning views of the Moray Firth, offers a perfect location for a luxury camping holiday.

Owners of the Hobbit, Matthew and Carole Short live on a family run farm near Rosehearty.

When trying to think of other ways to utilise their land this was the idea that appealed to them most. Carole Short said:

“The Hobbit offers a great alternative to the tent but retains all the ambience of a camping holiday.

The Aberdeenshire area is always popular with sea life and wildlife enthusiasts. Many people are interesting in exploring the undiscovered gem of the Moray Firth and the picturesque little fishing villages. We feel very confident we will get visitors.”

The Hobbit is solid and insulated and it will accommodate the variable Scottish weather by keeping you warm and dry even in the heaviest of rains.

It sleeps up to four people and will be kitted out with basic facilities – a fridge, microwave, kettle and TV.

High Seas Hobbit will be of special benefit to cyclists, walkers and families who want to enjoy the great outdoors...indoors! Owners Carole and Matthew Short hope to give visitors a glamping experience (glamorous camping).

Recent figures show an increase of 40% in home holiday bookings. Therefore more holiday goers are choosing to travel within in the UK and take advantage of what Britain has to offer.

There is also a growing trend towards outdoor holidays but being comfortable and cosy at the same time. So, whether you are looking for adventure, a chance to ‘go slow’ or a romantic getaway, the Hobbit could be for you.

It is important for us that the Hobbit is a unique place for people to come and stay. It will be quirky and fun and it will appeal to people looking for something small scale and different.

The Hobbit hopes to open its doors in March and if staying at High Seas Hobbit appeals to you, full details of its progress and its launch can be found on Facebook at facebook.com/high-seas-hobbit-house
