Oooh, cottages! How delightful!
I can’t wait to se more of these as you add to them this year.
Thanks for sharing these, Julia!


Lisa January 6, 2012 at 6:08 pm

You are so right; we looooovvve cottages! Can’ t wait! ;). So glad you are feeling good about your changes.


kelly in georgia January 7, 2012 at 9:11 am

THIS is wonderful! Perhaps it can fill the void left by the extinct Cottage Living magazine. Do you remember a cute little Gothic styled cottage they featured many years ago….tiny…white…arched windows???


Diane ... also from Georgia January 25, 2012 at 12:49 am

I totally agree … it was one of my favorite magazines and I can’t believe it was discontinued. I love, love, love cottages!


anne January 7, 2012 at 1:10 pm

I’ve been following your blog for months. Cottages is a wonderful addition to Hooked on Houses. Thanks for more inspiring photos. P.S. Love the yellow accents in your sunroom.

Reply January 7, 2012 at 2:25 pm

Just posted a picture of my “Florida Room”. See how you inspired me.


Marsha January 8, 2012 at 2:52 pm

I enjoy this site so much. So glad I discovered it. First found it looking for info on the Nights in Rodanthe house. Didn’t know there were others like me who love to see houses so much! Thank you.


Christy January 8, 2012 at 9:15 pm

Thank you so much for this website!!!! I am a house addict, I love looking at houses and floor plans. I am so glad I have a reference for the coveted houses I see on TV or in the movies and have no idea how to get a better look or more information. I too am more impressed with a cozy cottage than a huge mansion. My husband and I are thinking about building and I am sure your website will be a tool in our endeavors, thanks again!


Eunice in Prince Edward Island, Canada January 10, 2012 at 7:58 am

Hi – Just want to say I love your new website on cottages. I live in a 800 sq ft “cottage” so space planning can be challenging (to say the least).
Just wanted to tell you that I really enjoy your blog and look forward to seeing new cottages as you add them.
Have a great day :)


Dava January 19, 2012 at 3:49 am

What a fabulous website – love all the cottages. Can’t get enough. (especially impressed with that plain home that was transformed into a Craftsman) My home is called “Caw Cottage” – named for the loud crows that caw every morning and flock on my front yard. I even had a sign made by an old woodworker for my front door – Caw Cottage – Est. 1929. The house actually was built in 1950 but who cares? 1929 is more romantic. Plus, that’s the fun of living in a cottage – you make it what it is. Mine may look like a New England cape overlooking Penobscot Bay but it’s actually in the middle of Sherman Oaks, CA!


hookedonhouses January 19, 2012 at 7:27 am

Love it! :)


Cottage Homes January 20, 2012 at 7:53 pm

Love that you have a “Cottages” page! They are awfully cute and addictive. I look forward to seeing new cottages as you add them.


Neesha January 22, 2012 at 9:47 am

This is my first time to look into this new page. I’ve been busy at work so I knew I had to do it during my day off. Off to make coffee so I can drool over these lovelies this Sunday morning.


Rhonda January 27, 2012 at 3:58 am

Love the website! Have been on for hours….love the cottages and I really miss Cottage Living, too!!! I have enjoyed this site so much….cottages and decorating are definitely my passion…love your selections as well! I’ll be back! Thank you!


Joan von Weien January 28, 2012 at 5:00 pm

Hello, Julia:

You have said you want to have more cottages on your site. Kudos!

A favorite area in Montecito, California has the Moody sisters’ efforts during the 20’s and 30’s. A realitive is doing a book on the sisters, yet I don’t think it is out as yet. Do you know the cottages?

Joan von Weien


hookedonhouses January 29, 2012 at 5:19 pm

I don’t think I do know those cottages, Joan. I’ll have to see what I can find out about them. Thanks!


Holly February 9, 2012 at 2:49 am

Absolutly LOVE Fig Tree Cottage & was so excited to discover it is a holiday rental in Australia. Being English it is something I expected to find back home. Have just emailed the real estate agents to see if we can book a break there this year! I love it. Love this ‘Cottages’ segment – they’re all so gorgeous! Thanks Julia.


Debra Tincher-Graves February 9, 2012 at 2:11 pm

looking for the house on the Disney movie the “Ugly Dachshund do you have this


hookedonhouses February 9, 2012 at 2:16 pm

Don’t know that one. You can see the list of all the movie houses I’ve covered here:


Bren February 11, 2012 at 4:45 pm

When I first saw the photo of Fig Tree Cottage on this website, the first thing that came to mind was “Random Harvest” (Ronald Colman and Greer Garson…one of my favorite movies of all time!!!). Not exactly the same as the cottage in that movie, but close enough. Now I gotta go find that movie or I won’t be able to sleep! This is a beautiful, exciting website. Found it by accident after finally seeing “Nights in Rodanthe” and deciding to research the inn used in filming that movie. Now I’ve bookmarked this site and will visit it more often. Thanks to whoever is responsible for putting it together and keeping it going!


Anne from France February 24, 2012 at 10:28 am

Hello Julia !
Thank you so much for your wonderful webside. In France too, there are some “hooked on house” women who appreciate the possibilities you give to have looks into cozy, wonderful houses. I love decorating and fit out and it’s a pleasure to take ideas from you for my own house. Please forgive me, my english is not fluent !! Thanks again.


Lynette March 4, 2012 at 9:21 pm

There is a cottage that Carol Lombard rents in “In Name Only”. It is the sweetest, most adorable cottage. Have you ever seen it?


hookedonhouses March 5, 2012 at 8:36 am

That one doesn’t ring a bell. I’ll have to look for it!


Misty March 17, 2012 at 12:31 pm

Love this blog. I enjoy your posts on houses.


Susan @ Afford Your Passions April 17, 2012 at 3:54 pm

Gorgeous cottages – I love them all!

When my brother and his wife lived in England, they lived in a gorgeous 16th century thatched cottage in Salisbury – I wish I had taken more pictures of their place when I visited – I would have loved to have lived there!


Gail @ Delectably-Yours Beach Bedding & Decor May 1, 2012 at 8:59 am

Absolutely striking cottages! I love to take photo’s visiting various coastal locations. These are are some of the coolest properties I’ve seen. It’s hard to choose a favorite. Thanks for sharing!!


Dana Harris July 5, 2012 at 1:20 am

I absolutely love your website!


hookedonhouses July 5, 2012 at 7:57 am

Thanks, Dana! :-)

How about tree houses???


hookedonhouses October 2, 2012 at 8:13 pm

I love a great tree house! Here’s one of my favorites:


sam November 17, 2012 at 4:03 am

thanks its lovely website


Christin November 18, 2012 at 10:59 pm

I just watched the new Twilight movie, Breaking Dawn Part 2. The cottage used in that movie I just Love, Love, Love! It is nestled in the woods and has vines growing all over it. There are lamps to light the path. The interior is decorated so amazing for that movie. They show the closet in one scene and it is so pretty!


Jennifer Nesselroad December 16, 2012 at 9:36 am

I’m hooked on cottages! My new obsession is Edward and Bella’s cottage in Breaking Dawn part 2. I would love to see the floorplan of that cottage. It’s amazing.


Meredith January 30, 2013 at 10:02 am

I love these cottages! I have been looking for the “perfect” replacement house for me and my daughter, and now my fiance, for 3 years now. When I left my husband, I left my favorite house of all-time. A two-story brick house circa 1833. On 6 acres. It had been in my ex’s family for 100 years, so I felt I should be the one to leave. It’s sad though, because I am the one that truly loves the house. We restored it together. It was 90% complete when I left. I also landscaped it. I’d like to stay in Washington County, Maryland. So IF you ever come across something cute and charming with an acre or two, please let me know. Thank you!


Kayae February 3, 2013 at 5:17 am

I am not only hooked on cottages but hooked on your blog. I don’t usually follow blogs due to my workaholic hours. I do love Pinning on Pinterest. There are so many great ideas for a small home.There is nothing not to love on this site. Some people dream of castles. I dream of cottages! I am looking forward to seeing what you find to post in 2013!


hookedonhouses February 3, 2013 at 7:50 am

Thanks, Kayae! :-)


DGW July 29, 2013 at 8:54 am

Julia, my husband and I are planning a trip to the UK next year, and a cottage rental seems appealing. I know I’ve seen references on your site–if it wouldn’t be too inconvenient, might you email them or repost? Thanks so much. Love your site–lots of fun!


hookedonhouses July 29, 2013 at 9:33 am

Sounds fun! If you visit these posts, there are links at the ends of each one with rental info. Just click the pics! :)


Sam Streubel September 6, 2013 at 8:14 pm

I came here to find La Fortuna and two hours later I’m still looking at houses. I lived in Boston for 45 years which has some beautiful architecture, but nothing like I’ve seen here. Nice job. Thanks!


Brindusa November 23, 2013 at 9:01 am

Looking at each of these cottages was a lot of fun. Thank you for posting about them! I just love cottages!


Anne Chaddock June 13, 2014 at 2:19 pm

I am an artist in Naples Florida and I LOVE your collection of cottages.
Are the photos all under copyright? There are so many that I would love to paint.
I can’t stop looking at them.
Thank you so much for your reply


hookedonhouses June 13, 2014 at 3:09 pm

Hi Anne! I don’t see any issue with you painting any of them but you’ll find credit info for each cottage in the individual posts if you want to check where each is from. Thanks!


Pita August 12, 2014 at 12:54 pm

I just purchased a cottage as a home. It doesn’t have a name. Can I name it, and if so, how?


hookedonhouses August 12, 2014 at 1:03 pm

I always thought people just named their houses whatever they wanted!


Carol December 16, 2014 at 3:40 pm

All I’ve ever dreamed of is to live in a two bedroom cottage with a farmer’s sink in the kitchen. Please update your cottage pix. I simply love the pix you have now but crave new and different cottages.
Thank you,


Carol December 16, 2014 at 3:41 pm

Please update your cottage pix. I simply love the pix you have now but crave new and different cottages.
Thank you,


hookedonhouses December 16, 2014 at 3:45 pm

I’ll see what I can find for you, Carol! :)


Yvette April 27, 2015 at 12:06 am

Oh these are so cute! I live in a 700 sq ft home, but would love to have something old/historic and am addicted to the idea of having a set of wooden, creaky ‘servants’ stairs’ (like a staircase you would see in an old English home) to the second story.

Another cottage you should (please!) add to this list, is the country cottage that Kate Winslet’s character owns in the movie ‘The Holiday’. It’s an adorable stone cottage with 2 storeys and I think it may have had a thatched roof; it also had my ‘perfect’ staircase and the garden was full of roses and it was filled with lots of lovely books and looked so homey and gorgeous!

Great list, by the way!


hookedonhouses April 27, 2015 at 7:17 am

Hi Yvette! I wrote about the cottage from “The Holiday” but just didn’t list it here (it end up on my “Movie Houses” page instead). Here’s the link:

Nice to hear from you — thanks! :)


Yvette April 27, 2015 at 11:00 pm

Thanks for the reply and link. Just read it and it is still an extremely cute cottage, even if it was created for the movie *tears!

Another adorable cottage is Barton Cottage from the Jane Austen’s ‘Sense & Sensibility’, again with Kate Winslet – I do like her movies!

I am obsessed with quirky, rickety cottages and love watching UK tv shows like “Escape To The Country’ or ‘Location Location Location’ so I can get my eye-candy fix. One day :)

Mind, in saying that, I think the US large Queen Anne houses are amazing, too, with their colourful paintwork and widow’s walk towers. Funnily enough, horror movies always seem to have gorgeous houses in them (haha, how ironic!) and recently I watched ‘Insidious’, which has a beautiful Queen Anne home in it (the grandmother’s house) and had really nice paintwork in quite dark greys and blues, but it really suited the home and looked amazing.


Laura Cerabella July 5, 2015 at 11:34 pm

I love these homes. So different from the cookie cutter homes out there. I would love to own a rock cottage by the sea, or a cottage in the woods. I cannot make up my mind on that.
