Hurst Wood Cottage is one of the less common topographical designs and is in fact a misnoma. The original basis for the design is an engraving in Colbran’s New Guide for Tunbridge Wells and the cottage is in fact a farmhouse belonging to Viscount Nevill that was built in the style of a Tudor yeoman’s house. It was situated on Rusthall Common but no longer exists. The design was used by many makers and as such attribution has proven difficult.
