The cottage that inspired Nancy Meyer's romantic comedy is for sale!
The interiors of Nancy Meyers’ films are famously beautiful – generally large American houses with extremely well-equipped kitchens and miles of sumptuous bed linen. In her Christmas romantic comedy The Holiday, however, the filmmaker turned her hand to an English country cottage, and the results were quite something. Now the Surrey cottage which inspired the sets for the film is on sale, and could be yours for £650,000.
Although the Rosehill Cottage of the film doesn’t exist in reality – the exteriors were built from scratch in a field and the interiors are sets – Honeysuckle Cottage in Holmbury St Mary provided inspiration for the crew who designed it. The cottage is the home of Kate Winslet’s character, who conducts a home swap with Cameron Diaz’s LA mogul, and thus provides the setting for Diaz to fall in love with the dreamy Jude Law amidst her comedy dealings with the English countryside.
Don’t worry- the real life cottage has three bedrooms and is much more functional than the movie version, with all the same charm.
