A Charming Summer Cottage

This sweet garden shed, which sits on the grounds of a distinguished Georgian home in England, was turned into a charming guest cottage.

I think this would be a lovely place to be a guest, don't you? Once I was there, I'm afraid the homeowners may never get me to leave.


I love this votive-candle chandelier:

This cottage is one of JJ Locations' listings of places that film companies can rent. What kind of movie can you picture being filmed here? Something romantic, I imagine! (To see photos of the main house, click here.)

P.S. Stop by Hooked on Houses today to see photos of Julianne Moore's $12 million townhouse in NYC.

  2. Julia, I love this little cottage but like you said, they would probably have to kick me out because I wouldn't ever want to leave.

  17. I'm so happy I found your blog via Completely Coastal! I'm marrying a Boston area water baby who grew up in a Beachfront town and we spend every available minute by the water. I can't wait for us to have an old beach cottage of our own!
