Some of the National Trust Cottages have been acquired as part of a larger rural estate, or historic building. Small houses can be of great historic interest, especially if part of an estate village, once used for the estate workers and can be of great architectural interest in their own right. This can make for a great holiday base for any family, group or individuals.
