Christina Hardyment mentions fictional homes she loved as a child: "Wild Cat Island" (stretching the meaning of home) and also: Mole End in "The Wind in the Willows", Moonacre Manor in Elizabeth Goudge's "The Little White Horse", Laura Inglis Wilder's "Little House on the Prarie", L. M. Montgomey's "Green Gables", Lucy Bostonís "Green Knowe", and "Villa Villekuila" in Pippi Longstocking.

She was sorry to omit Rumer Godden's "China Court" and Elizabeth Goudge's "The Herb of Grace" and perhaps (though rather too crude) Poe's "The Fall of the House of Usher."

Houses in non-English language novels and hence ruled out were Hugo's "Notre Dame", Alain-Founier's "The Lost Domain", Mann's "Buddenbrooks", Kafka's "The Castle", Eco's "The Name of the Rose", and Allende's "The House of Spirits".
