Many of us are obsessed with the Harry Potter franchise, and would do almost anything to have the most immersive wizarding world experience possible.

Amazingly for Hagrid fans, you can now rent a holiday cottage which is inspired by the fictional home of Rubeus himself, Keeper of Keys and Grounds at Hogwarts.

The Groundkeeper’s Cottage has opened at North Shire near Saltburn on the edge of the North York Moors National Park, and is almost exactly a replica of Hagrid's Hut in the magical series.

The cottage has three interlocking circular slate-roofed buildings featuring stained glass windows, an open plan living room, seating in front of a feature fireplace, wood beams with Hagrid paraphernalia and a lantern-lit wooden door.

The owner Carol Cavendish has loved Harry Potter since her early 20s, and has incorporated small Potter-themed touches such as an ink bottle and quill and bespoke copper basin in the bathroom.

The cottage itself took £195,000 to build, and the holiday rental can sleep up to six people. If you've got a dog, or your very own Fang, you're also welcome to bring one well-behaved pet for an extra cost.

She's made a comfortable retreat for any wizards or witches to adore, for just £195 (€225) per night.

Harry Potter actor Robbie Coltrane is currently undergoing treatment in a Florida hospital after collapsing on a flight from London.

The actor, who played Hagrid in the film franchise, began suffering flu-like symptoms which worsened as the flight went on. Paramedics met him once the plane touched down in Florida and brought him to hospital.

The 64-year-old actor was en route to a Harry Potter convention in the US when he fell ill. 

It's believed Sir Michael Gambon, who played Dumbledore in the films, was also on the plane.

Robbie's rep hit back at claims that the actor has been drinking heavily at a Heathrow airport lounge before taking off, saying the claims were "completely untrue" and "not correct." She added that Robbie had very little time in Heathrow after his connection from Glasgow landed late due to snow.

We hope he'll be okay!
