If you were looking for cottages like The Tabernacle at Frieda and The Moon, how about trying these:

Utterly gorgeous in every way, this whimsically themed Victorian-style tabernacle hints at the glorious eccentricity of scholarly preachers of yesteryear. With bell tower rising triumphant, opulent botanical wallpaper (from quirky interior company Timorous Beasties), a radiantly coloured stained glass window and reclaimed ecclesiastical shutters screening the super deluxe bed, this amazing and meticulously hand-crafted bolthole takes glamping to another level. Just look at the glowing reviews! Under-floor heated throughout with a Hobbit wood-burning stove for cosy evenings, Farrow & Ball paints with gold leaf detail, antique French lamps and books galore, could there be a more sumptuous or relaxing place to escape from the stresses of everyday life? Built on the wrap-around deck outside is a bubbling hot tub, sheltered and private and perfect for warm soothing soaks. A chiminea with hot plate will toast your toes as you barbecue your supper, its flickering flames warming you as you snuggle under velvety star-gazey skies, soaking up the sounds of the countryside and dreaming dreams of what could be. Beautifully fitted out and equipped to perfection, The Tabernacle at Frieda and the Moon is utterly unique, seamlessly mixing antique finds with modern luxuries. There are gorgeous bed linens, cushions and throws; fabulous artwork and a bespoke stained glass window; a shower-room with double shower cubicle and big heated towel rail, all mixed with vintage treasures and a touch of styling genius. Set in a level meadow, sheltered by mature Cornish hedges and whispering trees the view over the undulating landscape of rolling hills and fields of gently bleating sheep is quite idyllic. There is a walk through ancient woodlands leading to a little stream babbling along the valley floor, and sunsets over the hills that turn the whole sky from pink to orange and red.
