Taken at the Lilliput Lane Centre,
Lilliput Lane is known worldwide for its miniature cottages, made famous for their fine detail, unmatched quality and authenticity. From chocolate box cottages to homes of the famous and buildings of historical importance, all aspects of the vernacular map of the British Isles are included in the product range.
The first Lilliput Lane cottages were introduced in 1982 and they immediately impressed with their authenticity and attention to detail. From then on, whether recreating the intricate thatch motifs decorating the roofs of traditional country cottages, capturing the majesty of Buckingham Palace, or reflecting the sacred character of the smallest church, the Lilliput creative team of sculptors, designers and artists have delighted collectors with their miniature designs. With their fascinating insights into many aspects of Britain’s heritage, the cottages evoke nostalgia for bygone times.
Entirely hand-made and painted in the Scottish Borders by skilled artists, the cottages have evolved over the years. Several designs now include illuminated windows and doors, music or movement, whilst the enchanting wintry- and snowy-themed cottages are of especial appeal during the festive season.
