English Cottage Bathroom

The bathroom of “Rosehill Cottage” from the movie “The Holiday”. This ancient cottage never existed but was built from wood and fiberglass especially for the movie…Even the garden and the trees are.

Previous pinner: "Rosehill Cottage in the movie, The Holiday" -- Me: ".a room we see very little of in the movie. It’s a wonderful, cozy library. Love the old rug and those old, old floors. The door is the back door to the cottage.


Not only is the bathroom pink (favorite color ever), but it has a claw foot tub in it. This is a MUST for my dream home!
