Rhosgobel was the home of the wizard Radagast the Brown. It was said to be located between the Carrock and the Old Forest Road on Mirkwood's western borders,[1] though Gandalf once mentioned Radagast as living near the southern borders of the forest.[2]


The term Rhosgobel originates from the Sindarin words rhosg ("brown") and gobel ("enclosed dwelling, walled house or village").[citation needed]

Portrayal in adaptations

The Hobbit film trilogy

In The Hobbit films, Rhosgobel is depicted as a ramshackle cottage, with various walls and roofs from other cabins being pieced together haphazardly around the base of an old tree. It has several holes in the roof, through which spiders could be seen.
