If you’re a follower of my social media pages A Country Agent you will know that every day I post pictures of the most beautiful country properties, including cottages, from across the UK.
Over the course of the month, our followers “like” or re-share their favourites and below is a compilation of three of the most popular country cottages from this year so far!
Often, people made the mistake of assuming that I was selling these beautiful properties and if this was the case, would have retired early(ish) and moved to the Caribbean long ago!
My page followers are based all over the world; from the UK to the US, Thailand to South Africa, Brazil to Indonesia but they all have one thing in common: a shared love of beautiful British Country Homes.
Lets take a look at three of your favourite cottages from so far this year…
This fabulous cottage in the north of England attaracted 7200 “likes” and it’s easy to see why. The aged wisteria over the stone entrance porch provides a fabulous place to come home to. It’s got bags of rustic charm this one and I love it.

Cottage Gardens: A Celebration of Britain’s Most Beautiful Cottage Gardens, with Advice on Making Your Own
A celebration of a beloved and uniquely British garden style. The cottage garden’s abundant, informal style is rooted in Victorian dreams of a perfect country life. But it has found new expressions from the Arts & Crafts movement to the present day.
This book showcases a selection of National Trust cottage gardens, famous and obscure, including writer Thomas Hardy’s cottage in Dorset; the flower-filled cottage garden created at Sissinghurst, Kent, by Vita Sackville-West and harold Nicolson; the Tudor manor Cothele in Cornwall, Beatrix Potter’s Cumbrian home, Hill Top, and the picturesque Alfriston Clergy House in East Sussex. Cottage Gardens also features some of the most famous non-National Trust examples from around the country, including Kelmscott Manor, Dove Cottage and Eastgrove Cottage Garden. With practical advice on creating your own cottage garden, including key plants and techniques, this is a wonderful companion for all garden enthusiasts.
With climbing roses, bright hollyhocks, pathways edged with honeysuckle, blossom-filled orchards and wildflower meadows, this is the perfect book to capture the idyllic British country garden.
Spring Cottage! This is a particularly quant cottage in Dorset with bluebells making their presence felt and the colours starting to show through the winter bleakness. After a long winter its no wonder this was a popular one!
The thatched roof is no doubt something that appeals, for more information about thatched roofs and the thatching process, CLICK HERE
