This time of year we love curling up to watch the classic Nancy Meyers rom-com ‘The Holiday.’ And today we are excited to announce the cottage that inspired the movie set is up for sale! The three-bedroom, one-full-and-one-half-bathroom house is listed by Hamptons International Sales, Dorking, for £650,000 – which translates to approximately $816,511.15.
According to House & Garden:
“The Rosehill Cottage of the film doesn’t exist in reality – the exteriors were built from scratch in a field and the interiors are sets – Honeysuckle Cottage in Holmbury St Mary provided inspiration for the crew who designed it. The cottage is the home of Kate Winslet’s character, who conducts a home swap with Cameron Diaz’s LA mogul, and thus provides the setting for Diaz to fall in love with the dreamy Jude Law amidst her comedy dealings with the English countryside.”
We adore the quaint cottage, which comes perfectly nestled in a cozy, countryside setting in the village of Holmbury St Mary in Surrey – a county in southeast England, bordering London.
The period cottage affords a stunning exterior positioned in the picturesque Surrey Hills. With landscaped gardens and a flagstone terrace offering serene views, it’s the perfect escape for those looking to vacation or relocate across the pond.
Important features of note include, “ironstone galleting and brick quoins under a tiled roof complemented by leaded light windows…inglenook fireplace with Jotul log burner and exposed timbers…bespoke craftsmen-built, hand-painted kitchen with oil fired AGA, underfloor heating to the ground floor and an extensive use of oak joinery throughout.”
From its exposed wood beams, to the charming fireplace, to the kitchen clad in butcher-block and pale green cabinetry, Honeysuckle Cottage has us at hello. It won’t take long for fans of ‘The Holiday’ to spot the resemblance. Can you?
