True to life & built to look good from all angles
- just like the real thing!
The special features that make our houses
distinctive and value for money...*(see note)
As beautiful on the inside as the outside
Fitted interiors are standard with all our dolls houses
Typically, our fitted interiors include the following features -
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 rear of St. Kentigerns’
The back yards 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!

Easy to light
Prepared for lighting - all our dolls houses are provided with cavity walls where needed, ready for you to lay in place the wires from your lights. Also, conductive tape is fitted behind false walls, and transformer points are positioned upon the perimeter of the base. Needless to say, everything is hidden from view. If you wish, we will put the lights and fires in for you. Just ask!

A piece of history
Historical accuracy is important to us. Your dolls house will be a true to life version of a Lake District property. 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. The deed gives you an outline of how this type of cottage developed over the years and the story of the people who may have lived
Please note: deeds are only supplied with our 24th scale cottages and not our other buildings.
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!

In addition, the following enhancements are also available...
Bring light into your dolls house
We can fit lights and fireplaces into your dolls house for you.
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 panelled 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.
