Sick of looking at the same four walls every day? Looking to escape your life for a while? Did your film composer boyfriend just cheat on you with his secretary and confront you about your inability to cry?

Then why not spend the holidays at charming Rosehill - er, Honeysuckle - Cottage, just an hour's drive from exciting London.

Sound familiar? That's because I'm talking about the cottage from the iconic Christmas film The Holiday!

Yes, you can really live your Cameron Diaz dream and cozy up in the quaint English cottage for the winter, now that it's available to rent on Airbnb.

The stunning Surrey property was the inspiration behind Iris' (Kate Winslet) adorable cottage after film producers spotted it and fell in love.

After picking Honeysuckle as one of the movie's key filming locations, it ended up being a little too far outside of London for cast and crew to travel to.

As a result, the crew ended up recreating the entire cottage brick by brick on a film set, naming it Rosehill Cottage.

So, it might not be the exact same building that Cameron Diaz was in, but that doesn't mean you can't sit in the master bed with your hat and scarf on or scream out the lyrics to 'Mr Brightside' while you're there!

A description of the house on Airbnb reads: "The quintessential English cottage! This charming, cosy cottage was the inspiration behind the design of Rosehill Cottage in the Hollywood blockbuster film ‘The Holiday’. This is truly a unique and tranquil place to stay."

When Airbnb host Jonathan and his partner Cressida first bought Honeysuckle Cottage, they had no idea it was the famous house from The Holiday. It was only when they spotted it in a property magazine that they realised they had invested in a hidden gem.

The house boasts beautiful views over the Surrey hills from its flagstone terrace, and a gorgeous back garden with hedgerows, trees, and lots of space for outdoor dining, if you're staying in the warmer months.

Original features like the log burner, the inglenook fireplace, and the wooden beams are still at the house's foundations. And if you're worried freezing in the colder season, Honeysuckle Cottage has you covered with underfloor heating.

The house can hold five guests, with two double bedrooms and one single, as well as a bath, shower, two toilets, and a utility room.

However among all of their amenities, I'm sorry to say that Jude Law is not included with the house.

The cottage is available to rent for around £275 per night, with a two-night minimum required, but you'll want to make your booking here sooner rather than later - it's a hot commodity!
