Planning a Harry Potter-themed wedding?  If getting married in Hagrid’s hut would be the wedding of your dreams, you may be in luck. North Shire, a 6-acre family farm in the North York Moors, has the only replica of Hagrid’s Hut in the world that you can stay in, as well as a replica Hobbit House and a wedding barn for a charming countryside reception. You can view photos of the inside of Hagrid’s Hut here. The faery lights and copper tub are additions that Hagrid himself might enjoy, although guests will be relieved that the duvet doesn’t feature the remains of Buckbeak’s last meal.

Much like Hagrid, the family that runs this site likes animals and you may encounter horses, chickens, goats, cats, and even a peacock or two during your stay.
