We Can’t Stop Daydreaming About These Cozy English Cottages!

English cottages are the stuff of fairytales — and movies like Nancy Meyer’s The Holiday, where the owner of a glam Hollywood home swaps it for a stay in Rosewood Cottage in Surrey. The cottage in the film — full of wood beams, fieldstone fireplaces, picturesque tubs and wide-plank floors — was actually constructed in a studio, but it completely captures the romance of the English countryside. Fortunately, these projects by U.K. design firm Sims Hilditch are the real deal, although there’s some movie magic, too: founder Emma Sims-Hilditch worked in film production for director Ridley Scott (best known for Alien and Blade Runner). Who wouldn’t want to stay in these pitch-perfect pastoral projects?
