Like most people (I imagine) we stayed here when we went to the Hobbiton movie set. It's about a 30 minute drive to the Shire's Rest. It's closer to Matamata where you can also get tours from, but from what we saw there doesn't seem to be much parking there, especially if you are in a campervan like us. Glad we went from the Shire's Rest for that reason. The campsite is nice enough, and the facilities were fine. The hot pools were an interesting extra which makes it stand out from your normal campsite a bit - the pools were very nice. It was also pretty easy to find, although it's a bit further from Matamata than you might think from quickly looking at the map!
