A Brothers Grimm hideaway that seems to sprout from the garden like a limewashed berry, Charlotte’s Folly is a luxury self-catering cottage nestled in 200 acres of Shropshire woodlands. Telling a sweet tale of craftmanship and nostalgia, this terracotta trinket is storybook architecture at its finest, a time-travelling family retreat that could have been lifted from folklore.
Designed by Emma Ainscough, this magical little 19th-century cottage is available for rent via Unique Homestays. I am completely smitten with the beauty of the estate (which includes ‘architectural marvels of Victorian stature’) and that gorgeous kitchen.
