Chocolate box cottages

Chocolate box cottages

It’s everyone’s dream to escape city life. But where do you live and what do you buy? Chocolate box cottages are high on most of our wish lists. They are some of Britain’s prettiest homes often with thatched roofs, attractive windows and wisteria or rambling roses cascading down the side of the property.  Whatever the season, they retain their charm and character. Here is a delicious round up of chocolate box cottages for sale.
