Cotswolds Cottage: Charming Home Tour

What is it about the English countryside that captures your heart and never lets go? There’s something about those little stone cottages dotting the rolling hills of the country with sheep baying in the background. Didn’t we all fall in love with the cozy little house featured in the movie, “Holiday” with Cameron Diaz, Jude Law, Kate Winslet, and Jack Black. I think you’ll find today’s Cotswolds Cottage by absolute abode design just as endearing.

Cotswolds Cottage Stone Exterior


The English cottage has organic appeal. A brick-lined fireplace creates texture and warmth while silver candlesticks lend a slight air of elegance. A classic wing chair provides a cozy seat (every home should have a wing chair, in my opinion!).

Built-in shelving provides a convenient spot for beverages and glasses, creating a makeshift bar of sorts. A pretty loveseat beckons you to relax and unwind with your favorite beverage.

Cotswolds Cottage Living Room


Gorgeous architectural details like the box window lend interest to every room. A cute little chair creates a cozy reading nook.

A red chair at the opposite end of the kitchen repeats the appeal of color. Charming window seats built into the painted brick wall add a charm all their own.

  1. Now this is a cottage – unlike some of the 2500 sq ft homes that call themselves cottages. I especially love the deep-set windows and would love to have them in my home. They provide a place for “cozy” in each and every room. Thanks for posting this one.

    1. Hello Pat,
      I too love the deep set windows and the fireplaces in the bedrooms…those new homes are not cottages they are monstrosities..These old style rock homes in London especially the really low ceiling w/beams and the window seats are real cottages…I love her blogs on all her old homes..
