Embracing the cottagecore aesthetic can be difficult to do if you don’t live in an idyllic countryside setting.
As Insider’s Palmer Haasch wrote, “Cottagecore is an aesthetic movement that draws together all of the best parts of going off and living in a cabin in the woods.”
Its popularity has exploded over the last few months, with interest in the aesthetic increasing on social-media platforms like Tumblr and TikTok.
The movement glamorizes quiet countryside environments, where people can make jam, bake bread, and embroider to their heart’s content. But that aesthetic can be hard to re-create if you live in a bustling city environment.
Luckily, Airbnb has a myriad of affordable cottages people can escape to with their friends for a taste of the quiet life.
