The Bree-landers were the peoples who inhabited the Bree-land, Men and Hobbits who lived peaceably side by side. These two races, identified individually as the Bree-hobbits and the Bree-men (or less formally as the Little Folk and the Big Folk).

Their main settlements were four communities scattered around the Bree-hill: Bree itself, Staddle, Combe and Archet.

They were a generally friendly folk, at least until the upheavals brought about by the War of the Ring. They had some dealings with the Shire-hobbits, though the road between Bree and their 'colony' of the Shire was less travelled by the late Third Age. The Bree-landers maintained their own dialect and customs, including their own unique calendar.
