“A family has today won a three-year battle to save their real-life ‘hobbit house’ from the bulldozers after it was built without planning permission for £12,000.
Charlie Hague and Megan Williams, both 27, used natural materials to create their unique home in a secret location in the countryside in Pembrokeshire, West Wales.
But the couple did not have planning permission to build it on land next to their family home and were ordered to demolish it after trying to apply retrospectively.
But their three-year battle to save their £12,000 eco-home from demolition – supported by 100,000 from around the world – has today ended in victory after they won a final planning inspector appeal.
Miss Williams said: ‘We are delighted. We are very happy and very excited we can carry on doing what we want to achieve living on the land.”
