Fairytale Cob Cottage with Living/Green Roof


This is a remarkable “green” cob cottage, built using many natural and reclaimed materials including straw bales, earth, clay, round timber and stone! Best part? You can rent it! Located in Moray, Scotland, you’ll feel far away from it all while staying here.

The home comes equipped with a full kitchen, spacious outdoor living area, roomy bathroom, bunks, a double bed and even a couple of fold-out futons if you want a family vacation.

Of course, we’re all waiting for travel overseas to open back up again, but if you happen to live in Scotland, maybe you should make reservations right now! Book your stay over at Airbnb.

    An amazing & beautiful little house. I want to live there but the idea of such a cozy place would make my husband squirm. I can dream though.

    I would love to live there. It’s all the quaint personality of old times with all the convenients of modern times. Yes it could have been made for me😍

    It truly is a fantasy little retreat! I love it all and like so many others, would love to live there! I do think that if I was going to live in a place like this, however, I’d make it just a bit bigger. Mostly to increase the size of the living room area so I could have the big comfy sofa as well as a couple of oversized, overstuffed chairs. I can definitely see some of my more frivolous furniture and artworks in this environment! This small version of my dream would be a welcomed relief from the troubles of the world, for sure!!!

    My Telescope would love this. She needs a room just for her. 😉 Yes, her. This is beautiful and it don’t look crowded. Can you give the roof a trim off and on? LMAO! I like the roof. Is character. Morning Natalie and Alex. Going to be scorching here in the Sequoia National Forest today.

      All you’d need is a goat or two and the grasses would take care of themselves.
