You can now book to stay in the cottage from The Holiday on Airbnb

The Manc The Manc - 22nd December 2022

Did you know the famous Surrey home that was the inspiration for the cottage in The Holiday is now available to rent on Airbnb?

There’s no denying that The Holiday is an absolute Christmas classic at this point.

Released all the way back in 2006, the film stars Kate Winslet and Cameron Diaz as two lovelorn women from opposite sides of the pond who arrange a home exchange to escape heartbreak during the Christmas season.

However, their lives change unexpectedly when they meet and fall in love with two local lads played by Jack Black and Jude Law.

It’s a film many like to stick on each time Christmas around, and if you’re one of those with it on your watch list every year, then how would you like to live out the your festive rom-com fantasies by staying over in the famous cottage?

As fans will know, perhaps the most iconic scene from the film sees Cameron Diaz arrive in snowy Surrey after flying all the way from glamorous Hollywood.

Clad in her Louboutin high heels and dragging her Louis Vuitton suitcase behind her, she journeys through cobbled streets and winding roads to find a cosy little cottage where she will be staying for the new few weeks.


And this quintessential English cottage, named Honeysuckle Cottage, is now available to rent on Airbnb for those looking to step inside the scene, The Hoot reports.

Although the interior of the cottage was actually a film set, the inspiration came from this beautiful home – and it will forever be known as The Holiday cottage.

The home can be rented for £295 per night on popular home rental website Airbnb.


The cottage has gorgeous unique features such as exposed beams, a huge inglenook fireplace with a log burner, and somewhat dangerously low ceilings, but it’s actually a lot bigger than it seems on the film, as it has three bedrooms that can sleep up to five people.

Plus, there’s underfloor heating and an AGA too.

To make things even better, during the festive season, the residents decorate the house with fairy lights and a Christmas tree so you really feel as though you have stepped into the movie.
