UK Cottages Inspired By The Christmas Film The Holiday

Updated 18 December 2019 | by Lara McComish

Picture a cottage more Christmassy than the Surrey cottage featured in the Christmas film, The Holiday. We dare you! While the real  Rosehill Cottage is fictional, you can instead ogle at these cosy Clickstay cottages in the UK inspired by Nancy Meyers' The Holiday. 

1. Beach Cottage in Cornwall

Cottage in Cornwall

Nestled in a rural setting, this Cornish cottage enjoys a range of cosy comforts with close proximity to the sea. It's a dinky 3-room bolthole that sleeps 4 but could be just the countryside retreat for Amanda Woods, Cameron Diaz's highflying LA businesswoman character in the film. Plus, does anything say 'quaint cottage' more than those gorgeous flower arches at the entrance?

2. Cottage in the Lake District

Cottage in the Lake District

Indulge in the comfort of Wayside Cottage. Tucked away in the Lake District, this stunning period complete with exposed beams and an open fireplace would make an idyllic home for Kate Winslet's character, Iris Simpkins, if she ever wanted to head up north. 

3. Cottage in Suffolk

Cottage in Suffolk

Tucked away in Hemley in Suffolk, your party will enjoy the outdoor space available at this 3-bed cottage. Spend your getaway going on romantic or family countryside walks like Jude Law and Cameron Diaz's characters did in The Holiday. Evenings will be best enjoyed snuggled up to a film next to the open-hearth fireplace. 

4. Beach Cottage in Kent

Cottage in Kent

This dear little 2-bed cottage in Deal, Kent sits by the sea in the garden of England. Inside is a charming little nook, perfect for cosying up with one of Amanda's holiday reads that she carts over from the USA. Enjoy the quiet in this coastal hideaway or play Mr Brightside on full volume; whichever comes naturally to you, it's your holiday after all...
