Fitted interior of Crosthwaite Cottage in 1750
In other words, just what you’d expect in a real period house.
Built in the round to look good from all angles
Features on all sides mean our dolls houses are realistic. We don’t believe in bare, unsightly backs. Our buildings are designed to look as good from behind as they do from the front.

The outhouses and yards at the back of Wetherlam Row
If required, we can provide your cottage with a turntable to make the most of this feature.
Removable floors, stairs, etc. mean that your dolls house is easy to access for decorating, lighting and furnishing. When you’ve done, just slot everything back into place. Please note: if you wire your house with lights then some items, usually floorplates, will no longer be removable.
The removable parts of Wetherlam Cottages
All our dolls houses are provided with cavity walls and other structures to hide any wiring needed for lights and fires. You can fit the lights yourself or we can make it easier for you by doing this when we build your house.

A piece of history
Historical accuracy is important to us. Your dolls house will be a true-to-life version of a Lake District building. We research our subject and then design with care to enable us to combine the necessary flexibility of a dolls house with the authenticity of a scale model.
A ‘deed of conveyance’ is provided when you buy a 24th scale cottage, stating the property
has been transferred to you. Please note: deeds are only supplied with 24th scale cottages and not any other type of building or any of our 48th scale models.
10% discount on your first order of furniture comes with most dolls houses you buy from us. This enables you to begin furnishing your new house at a bargain price.

Make your dolls house truly unique
Change or add features to your chosen dolls house. This might be a different type of fireplace, a particular shade of paint on the walls or a paneled partition instead of wattle and daub. Whatever it is you want, we will try to accommodate your choice of features while maintaining the authenticity of the building.
