Here's a photo of Hobbiton in the morning. It's located right by Matamata kinda in the middle of the North Island. We stayed at an amazing house with no nails ( housewithnonails.co.nz ) - I talked to the lady that runs the place on the phone before we got there. I told her I had a suitcase full of nails and asked if I could bring it in. She told me no.
