Fall in love with a country cottage this Valentine’s Day

Every year on the 14th February, the UK enjoys Saint Valentine’s Day, a celebration of all things ‘love’. Our everlasting love is for the English country cottage – from their charming exteriors to the inglenook fireplaces and wood beamed ceilings. Our latest English Village Homes research also revealed that the timeless chocolate box cottage is the least expensive type of English village home when comparing it to the likes of the old rectories and converted barns - all the more reason to love these pretty properties.  

Here are some of our characterful cottages looking for new homeowners that will love them as much as we do:
