Couple fight to save 'Hobbit house'

A couple who built a Hobbit-style house in Pembrokeshire are fighting to save it after the council issued an enforcement notice because the pair didn't seek planning permission.

Charlie Hague and Megan Williams, both 25, built the £15,000 eco-house on land owned by Mr Hague's parents in Glandwr, near Whitland.

It was finished just weeks before the birth of the couple's first son, Eli.

They are now appealing against the notice and have also applied to Pembrokeshire County Council for retrospective planning permission which would save their home from being torn down.

An enforcement notice has been served on this property as it is alleged that an unauthorised dwelling has been built in open countryside without planning permission.

It is currently the subject of an enforcement appeal.
