Pooh - Fictional Holiday Cottages

Five fictional homes that would make awesome Holiday Cottages

We like to think that we have some of the best Holiday Cottages in existence. However, how do we measure up to these amazing fictional homes?

We think the following five fictional homes would make a splendid Holiday Cottage.

5 – The House from Up

Ok, so flying through the sky in a house kept in the air by a gazillion balloons isn’t everyone’s cup of tea. Also, it may well be the furthest thing from the relaxing holiday most of us are looking for. Some would even say it’s downright terrifying. However for many of us, a journey into the clouds would be perfect. Perhaps the best way to literally ‘get away from it all’? A Holiday Cottage air-ship.

4 – The Burrow, from Harry Potter

Our Holiday Cottages have bags of rustic charm. However, even Woodfarm House with its centuries-old exposed oak beams and its rambling 15th Century design complete with thatched roof can’t compare to The Weasley’s home in the Harry Potter stories when it comes to kookiness. It’s a home of such eccentric design that it could only be held together by magic. A weekend in one of our Holiday Cottages may well be a magical time, but we’re sorry to say that our Cottages are built using more traditional techniques.

3 – The Gingerbread House, from Hansel and Gretel by The Brothers Grimm

Best not to think too deeply about the inhabitant of the Gingerbread House in the original story when imagining it as a Holiday Cottage. It’s probably best to dream of a weekend break without the cannibalistic witch to whom the house belonged in the Brothers Grimm’s fairy tale. I don’t know about you, but I don’t feel like I could really relax with her around. Also, probably not one for those on diets.

But apart from those minor drawbacks, it’s a house made of gingerbread! That sounds like an excellent Holiday Cottage to me. If you forgot your key or locked yourself in then there’s a great way to get through the door, but again its back to the calories!

2 – The Pineapple, SpongeBob’s house from SpongeBob Squarepants

Perhaps one for the more calorie-conscious. Many people when they’re building Holiday Cottages don’t consider fresh fruit as a option for building materials. Personally I think that’s a shame. In my opinion 124 Conch Street would make a terrific getaway spot to forget the stresses and strains of the world. Especially if one has a taste for Krabby Patties.

And so to number one in our five fictional holiday cottages.

Ladies and Gentlemen, we bring you…..

1 – The House at Pooh Corner

My personal favourite house from fiction is The House at Pooh Corner. A shining example of everything great Holiday Cottages should be. Well catered, environmentally friendly, well furnished and full of friendly welcoming locals. Spending a weekend with Pooh and his friends sounds like heaven to me. I adore the slow pace and genuine warmth that runs through A. A. Milne’s stories. The idea of stopping in for tea with Owl, Piglet and the gang fills me with a satisfying glow.

Of course you could probably re-create the experience of a weekend with Pooh in one of our Holiday Barns or Cottages. Simply stock up on honey and then have a loveable but slightly slow relative eat it all before you get a chance.

For a getaway in one of our (very real) Holiday Cottages you can check our availability and book online.
