Ten cosy cottages with a fire

Autumn leaves, early winter frost, snuggling on the sofa of an evening. At the end of a day, cosy up in front of a real fire with a glass of wine or an Aga-warmed hot chocolate and relax in a Classic holiday cottage.


We’ve hundreds of cottages with open fires / log burners to set the scene. From small to large, here are ten to get you daydreaming…


Mill Barn (3352)

This one has undeniable wow factor, and with that space-age wood-burner on the wall and deep, low sofas to lay out on, there's nothing more to do than relax. There's even room for your four-legged friends for a full family evening by the fireside.

Forest View (4195)

Stroll out through the woodlands and wildflowers of mid Devon before warming cold toes in front of this fiery focal point. There's plenty of comfy sofas so everyone can get a toe in with room for the dog, too.

Flackstead (3913)

With its extremely efficient biomass boiler and solar panels, you won't be chilly in this eco house, but it's always nice to light a real fire and cosy up with loved ones on a plump sofa like those at Flackstead on the Isle of Wight.



The Duck House (3204)

'Seas the Day' in this gorgeous, contemporary, single-storey dwelling for two, with all mod-cons in Cornwall.

Ridge House (3991)

There's more than one fireside to enjoy in this big house in Hampshire. Sunny days spent with the wall of doors open to the garden, before snuggling up of an evening. Lovely.

The Pavilion (2946)

A striking design, harking back to its agricultural past with rough timber-clad walls and a curved zinc roof, the interior contrasts beautifully with contemporary design and twenty first century comfort in this property for two near Truro.

Pitt Farm Cottage (3012)

A newly refurbished 17th Century cottage, tucked away base on the edge of beautiful Exmoor National Park near Dulverton, Somerset. It's perfectly gorgeous for a romantic liaison in front of the fire.

Nancealverne House (1895)

In the days when this Listed building was built, it would've been the only means of keeping warm but this manor house in Penzance has plenty of mod-cons with the open fire as a little luxury.

Dairyman's Cottage (2094)

An open fire in a traditional inglenook is the perfect place to relax with a glass of red and a good book after a day on the farm near Shaftesbury, Dorset.

North View (4125)

Bet you've never seen a wood-burner quite like this one before... This quirky heater is over on the Isle of Wight, ready to warm your cockles after a day out in Seaview.
