Taylor Swift

The 23-year-old singer recently visited her One Direction boyfriend's mother Anne in Cheshire, North West England, and fell in love with the area so much, she wants to look for a country retreat there.

A source said: "Harry and Taylor are crazy about each other. They just got back to LA together, after sharing a week-long vacation in England.

"While they were in the UK, they had a chance to drive up to Harry's mom's place in Cheshire and Taylor fell in love with the gorgeous countryside.

"They spent a day in Holmes Chapel, with Harry's mom Anne and his sister Gemma, before driving up to the Lake District.

"Taylor would love a really old, thick-walled cottage with a fire place."

And it seems 18-year-old Harry's family are delighted with the idea of their son's girlfriend having a permanent base near them.

The source added to RadarOnline.com: "Harry's mother and sister have vowed to help her find the perfect place!"

It was recently claimed Taylor had also been house-hunting in the UK and was ideally looking for a place close to the £3 million home in the Primrose Hill area of the city which the 'Little Things' hitmaker bought earlier this year.

A source said: "She has asked Harry if he'll look at some places with her, since he knows the area."
If Taylor does buy a house to be nearer Harry, it won't be the first time she has let love influence her property purchases.

In August, the 'We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together' hitmaker bought a $4.9 million, 13-room property in Hyannis Port, Massachusetts, after spending time in the area with then-boyfriend Conor Kennedy, 18, and the property is across the street from his grandmother's home.

Additionally, the country singer bought a home in Nashville for $2.5 million in 2011. She also owns a huge penthouse apartment in the city, as well as a $3.3 million home in Beverly Hills.
