You get model good looks and bundles of charm at Tudor Cottage in the lively Hampshire village of Oakhanger. The 1550s beauty features in the famous Lilliput Lane miniature replicas range thanks to its fine thatch, while its landscaped gardens are a picture, too. Inside the house you find beams and wood burners in the sitting and dining rooms, with bespoke units and slate floors in the kitchen. It has two bedrooms under vaulted ceilings but if you want more living space, a separate studio/games room could convert into a generous annexe. Through Savills.
