Informal letter to a friend describing a house for rent


When we write an informal letter to a friend describing a house for rent, we can divide it into five paragraphs. We start our letter with Dear + our friend's first name.

We can use a variety of adjectives to make our descriptions more interesting to the reader.


In the first paragraph we write our opening remarks and the reason for writing our letter.

Main Body

In the second paragraph we describe the location of the house and give details of the rent.

In the third paragraph we describe the exterior of the house (what it is made of, garden, etc).

In the fourth paragraph we describe the interior of the house (e.g. floors, rooms, furniture, special features, etc).

We start each main-body paragraph with a topic sentence i.e. a sentence which introduces or summarises the paragraph.


In the last paragraph we write our closing remarks and sign off using Yours, Best wishes, etc + our first name.


Dear Peter,

How are you? Hope everything's OK. I'm writing to let you know that I think I've found the perfect summer cottage for you.

It's in a really nice location. It's a quiet area, but the best thing about it is that it is less than a kilometre from the sea. Also, the rent for the cottage is only £150 a week.

The house is really charming outside. It's an old brick farm building which has been converted into a holiday cottage. It's got a patio and is surrounded by a beautiful garden.

Inside, the house is nice and comfortable. It has two floors. On the ground floor there is a cosy living room and a kitchen with all the modern equipment you would expect, as well as dining room and a WC. Upstairs there are two small bedrooms and a bathroom. The house is fully furnished so you don't need to worry about that.

Let me know if you like the sound of it. I can easily talk to the owner, Mr Smith, for you. I hope I'll see you here soon. I'll tell you all of my news then.
