It was a 2 hour road trip each way from Ohope to Hobbiton, but well worth the Big day out!  We had a short detour via Matamata to see the i-site and get directions out to Shires Rest.  It was an overcast day, but still incredibly warm as we wandered around the village looking at the hobbit homes, gardens, washing and sampling the ale while being told tales from the films.
