The six-acre family farm opened the cottage, inspired by Hagrid’s Hut from Harry Potter novels, on April 6 for a newly-married couple to be the first to stay in.

Inside the cabin, which can sleep up to six-people, it is complete with open plan living area, kitchen, bedroom, bathroom and garden. More photos here.

Owner Carol Cavendish is “absolutely blown away” by the reaction to her design which was built by set designer, Billy Cessford, who also works at Redcar and Cleveland College.

“It has gone viral were in America, Australia and China it’s absolutely crazy. I’m ecstatic it’s beyond belief from anything we expected,” she added.
