The Burrow

The Burrow is the fictional house which belongs to the Weasley family in the Harry Potter series of books and movies. It is located in the fictional village of Ottery St Catchpole[?], Devon, UK (possibly based on, or located near, the real town of Ottery St Mary[?]). The house is very tall - perhaps four or five floors high - and remains standing only by magic. There is a well-hidden quidditch pitch nearby.

The Burrow is highly magical, and most normally inanimate objects in the house have been enchanted to perform tasks automatically. It is also haunted by a "house ghost" in the attic who keeps Ron Weasley awake at night. The house provides a safe and fun place for Harry Potter to stay during the summer holidays, when he cannot stay at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.

The Burrow is home to Arthur Weasley, Molly Weasley, Bill Weasley, Charlie Weasley, Percy Weasley, Fred Weasley, George Weasley, Ron Weasley, and Ginny Weasley.
