So, what is there to know about these very English homes? Sater Design Collection has compiled a list of some need-to-know cottage facts.
- During the Middle Ages the cottage was the style of home that was used to house farmers and agricultural workers as well as their families. Originally, the homes were small and referred to as ‘huts’, which is quite as glamorous sounding as the cottage, is it?
- The term cottage denoted the dwelling of a “cotter” or “peasant”
- Later on, the cottage is described as a home with 4 rooms, two upstairs and two downstairs. However, this has changed dramatically over recent years with cottages today being much larger in size with many still featuring charming elements and features throughout.
- In the US and Scandinavia a cottage is considered more of a holiday home, often located near water, beach or resort.
