Take 5… Homes that could feature in our favourite festive films

Festive Films HEADER

As the weather turns colder and the nights draw in, there’s nothing quite like escaping the events of the festive season and curling up in front of the telly.In fact, we think it’s the one time of the year we are all allowed to sink guilt free into some feel good and always predictable festive films. It doesn’t even matter if you’ve seen them hundreds of times before; a tale of Christmas spirit, a story filled with childlike magic, or a classic rom com just never seems to get old.

In fact, Christmas films have become a bit of a festive staple. For most of us, it just wouldn’t be the same without watching one or two at least. Every year, our screens are flooded with new ones from every platform hoping to score the next big hit. But, there are some that just cannot be replaced – here’s looking at you Love Actually and Miracle on 34th Street.

So, whether you’re opting for Macauley Culkin getting left behind from the airport again or watching Cameron Diaz fall in love in the English countryside as you break into the chocolate tin, we’ve picked five of our favourite festive films and homes that could well have played a starring role in them:

The Holiday

There is so much to like about this utterly charming, festive rom com.

But, Rosehill Cottage, Iris’ countryside home, is our favourite part of this festive classic and this charming cottage could easy be swapped in.

Home Alone

The story of 8-year-old Kevin McAllister being left behind from the Christmas holiday has long been a classic of the festive season.

The grand brick residence in American suburbia that features as the family home is almost as familiar to us as Macaulay Culkin. We’ve think this wonderful Georgian home could be its English equivalent.

Love Actually

A film that says ‘Christmas is all around us’.

A film that says ‘Christmas is all around us’. We all have our favourite parts of its busy plot but perhaps one of its most iconic scenes was Mark carrying that boombox to Juliet’s Notting Hill mews house. This property looks quite similar.

A Christmas Carol

Charles Dicken’s story of Ebenezer Scrooge and Bob Cratchit is a Christmas classic synonymous with the season of goodwill.

With Scrooge’s home set in London, we think this three bedroom apartment in a beautiful Victorian building near Kensington High Street would fit well on set.

The Grinch

The story of the Grinch is one we all know so well and transports us to the wonderful fictional place of Whoville.

With Mount Crumpit and the Hakken-Kraks, it could easily be swapped for the area surrounding Plockton. 29 Harbour Street can be found on the shores of Loch Carron.
