Whether you are just starting out as a couple and planning to raise some kids or simply wishing for a comfortable vacation home, cottages still make some of the best places to call home! There’s just something about cottages that make the house more charming and homey for your family.
Even several rich and powerful personalities own a cottage somewhere or at least enjoy living in one from time to time while on vacation.
If you want proof of that, just check out Nottingham Cottage, a two-bedroom cottage in the grounds of Kensington Palace in London that has housed several royals, including Prince William and Kate Middleton. The cottage is currently the home of Prince William’s younger brother, Prince Harry, and Meghan Markle.
Of course, Nottingham Cottage isn’t your typical cottage as it is located inside the Palace complex, but it does have a little garden.
As the younger pair await the birth of their baby, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are also planning on moving to Frogmore Cottage. Yep, they do love cottages, too! Isn’t that cool?
