Do you know what we love? Traditional country cottages that look like something from a chocolate box! With their flint walls and thatched roofs, they have an old world appeal that will never die and when they are restored lovingly, we think they look spectacular!
As it’s Friday, we thought we would bring you our top 4 with a bit of a difference, so prepare to be whisked away to some of the remotest rural locations mainly in the UK (duh) for a look at some beautiful country cottages. We just know that even the most urban-minded of you out there will start picturing yourselves relaxing on an evening in front of a roaring fire, while something delicious cooks in the AGA. Who knows, maybe this will be the push you need to hang up your briefcase and move out into the sticks!

The ideal cottage

A travel cottage

A classic cottage

Originally bought as a total renovation and redecoration project, this wonderful cottage was completed within an extraordinarily tight timeframe and to an astonishingly high level. Naturally, specialist trades were required in order to maintain the stone frontage, but what has been accomplished is lovely. We always seek to include surprising properties in out lists and though this looks far more modern than some of the other inclusions, we knew it had to feature in our top 10 country cottages compilation. The cosiness of the is rural retreat secured it's place, if nothing else!

A modern cottage

To finish, we though we would include something a little different, so have opted to include a modern build. The use of rustic materials, such as locally sourced stone and timber all ground this build into the landscape and in our eyes, makes it a worthy addition to our favourite cottages list!
