Hamptons International Sales, Docking has listed Holmbury St. Mary, Nr Dorking, Surrey, RH5 for £650,000.

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.”
