Thank you for visiting us! Since 1982, when Lilliput Lane was founded, we have been actively selling Lilliput Lane cottages. Even though Lilliput Lane ceased operations near the end of 2016, we have many secondary market cottages available.

If you are looking for a retired model not shown on our lists, please contact us to see if we have it. Limited space does not allow us to list every model we have for sale.

In addition, our years of experience with Lilliput Lane cottages allows us to bring to you:

Passing of David Tate, M.B.E.

It is with great sadness that we have heard of the death, on January 17, 2017, of David Tate, M.B.E., founder of Lilliput Lane.  He had a vision, and made his vision come true through a lot of time and effort over the years.  Collectors throughout the world will miss him, and our thoughts are with his family.

Retirement of Books

Since the 1990s we have been producing two books to enrich your Lilliput Lane collection. Lilliput Lane – The Complete Collectors Guide was released in 1995 as a loose-leaf reference book, with full colour pictures and information about each model. Starting with almost 1,000 pages, the book has grown with semi-annual updates to over 3,600 pages in length! The Pocket Guide to Lilliput Lane™ Cottages was introduced in 1998 to meet the needs of collectors who wanted to carry a quick-reference guide with them when shopping for models. To keep this book current, we have produced either a new edition or a supplement to this book every two years.

We have both retired from our regular jobs, and family obligations along with other activities and factors make it necessary for us to announce the retirement of our books. We will be discontinuing our updates to Lilliput Lane – The Complete Collectors Guide at the end of 2016. Until then we will continue to sell extra binders (although we do not have many left) and, if your book is not up-to-date, updates for all previous years. Starting in 2017, these items will be available for sale only if we still have inventory. Similarly, we will no longer be producing new editions or supplements to The Pocket Guide to Lilliput Lane™ Cottages, so the sixth edition with the 2008–2014 supplement is the last edition of that book.

We want to thank each of you for your dedication to our books. Producing them has required a lot of hard work over the past two decades, but we are proud of what we have accomplished, and the kind words you have given us about the books are very much appreciated by us.

Binders for Lilliput Lane: The Complete Collectors Guide

Unfortunately, we have sold our entire inventory of binders for Lilliput Lane: The Complete Collectors Guide, and will not be receiving any more. The sheets in the book are 5-1/2 inches by 8-1/2 inches, 3-hole punched, which is a standard size in the USA, so plain binders are available from various suppliers there. One popular brand for binders in the USA is Avery, and you can see their 5-1/2 inch by 8-1/2 inch binders at http://www.avery.com/avery/en_us/Products/Binders/Durable-Binders/_/size-holds-5-1-2-x-8-1-2-paper/?N=4294967264+4294963963. You can also find a variety of binders in this size at www.amazon.com. (Please note this is not an endorsement of either Avery Products Corporation or Amazon.com, Inc.)


Change in Payment Methods

Due to rising costs in processing credit and debit card transactions, we will no longer be accepting any credit or debit card for payment after 15th October 2016. We are accepting payments by PayPal and by bank transfer, and will continue to accept cheques payable in UK pounds.

Please contact us with any questions.
