When it's this cold outside, there's no place we'd rather be than at one of these top five cosy country cottages:
There are over 20 cottages to choose from here, from dog-friendly, to plush farmhouses, a converted chapel and a stylish eco-house with bells and whistles galore; plus every convenience is at your fingertips.
If ever you're in need of a nice place to stay in Lewes, close to the town centre, then this is it – a charming Victorian cottage, furnished with antiques, wood-burning stoves and warm rugs.
Big private gardens and never ending farmland around the property makes this the perfect retreat for those who enjoy their own space and the sound of nothing but nature.
Not labelled as a 'cottage' but still very much as charming as one, these two barns offer romance, comfort and peace in droves. You're also surrounded by nothing but stunning Derbyshire countryside.
Quite simply the stuff of rural country living dreams, this 17th-century cottage comes with an open plan beamed kitchen with aga, a cast iron range and limed wooden floors.
