LEGO® Set 4840 – The Burrow Cottage Alternate Build

Rochelle November 15, 2015 @ 5:03PM

Just when I thought I'd seen every LEGO® set from the Harry Potter universe I came across this one! This set is unusual. It wasn't a set that was sold, which is why I suspect most people don't know about it. I believe the official name for this set is "Harry Potter Cottage" but I like to think of it as "Shell Cottage," the home that Bill and Fleur Weasley moved into after they got married.

This set can be built using parts from The Burrow. From what I was able to find from my research, LEGO® created instructions on how you can make this for their LEGO® Club, then eventually made the instructions available to anyone who wanted them.

If you already have The Burrow and want to build this cute cottage then you can print them by going here.

However, if you are like me and don't want to separate bricks from The Burrow then I have good news! There is a seller who has put together all the parts you need, as well as instructions, and you can buy the set either on Amazon or eBay. I bought a set for myself from this person and can tell you that the set it made of all new parts and is top notch. Just be aware that this set is sometimes out of stock and not available for sale.

A word of advice  when building this set - I found the roof to be a bit tricky to put together. You may need a bit of patience if it is challenging for you, too.
