    There will be 3 ‘winners’ when bookings open at 10AM NZDT on Dec 14 who will stay with us for two-night stays on March 2-4, 9-11 and 16-18. These are the only dates the Airbnb accommodation will be available at Hobbiton Movie Set.

  • How do I book to stay there?

    Booking opens via the AirBnB website at 10AM NZDT on Dec 14 for three two-night stays on March 2-4, 9-11 and 16-18. Applicants must be over 18 years old, have an Airbnb profile and have a history of positive reviews. We are expecting a high volume of users on the website when booking opens. These stays are sure to book out very quickly so get in fast if you want to book one of these once-in-a-lifetime stays.

  • Will the Millhouse become accommodation permanently?

    No. This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for some lucky fans to stay overnight at Hobbiton Movie Set. The Millhouse is being transformed by our talented team of set designers exclusively for these Air BnB stays and will not be a permanent offering here at Hobbiton Movie Set.

    We want to continue to offer the best tourism experience we can for our visitors. Permanent accommodation within Hobbiton Movie Set itself may compromise the experience and take away from our core tourism experience.

  • Will you be offering accommodation at Hobbiton in the future?

    Accommodation is not currently a part of our offering, and we have no plans to pursue this at Hobbiton Movie Set at this time. There are a number of fantastic Air BnB and farmstays in the Matamata area and surrounding centres that are very popular with our visitors.
