best cottagecore minecraft seeds

In the past we’ve covered the tropical side of Minecraft with our beautiful exotic Island seeds, we even ventured to the survival side of Minecraft with the list of best survival seeds, now it’s time to relax a bit and present to you our list of best cottagecore seeds for Minecraft.

If you’re not familiar with it, the term „cottagecore“ in Minecraft represents unity with nature. Think bees, flowers, mountains, verdant plains, magic, fairies, and everything in between. Cottagecore is supposed to represent a well-tended homestead with a cozy atmosphere and a sense of peace and balance with nature.

Having said all that, we prepared for you the top 20 cottagecore seeds that can be your starting ground for building that ultimate homestead. We’ve made sure to include plenty of biomes and themes so, let’s check them out!

Editor’s Note: This list has been updated to reflect the current state of the game, the following seeds are still functional and work as intended.

1. Autumn Canyon

Autumn Canyon

Version: Java Edition 1.19
Biome: Wooded Badlands
Seed: 1723113523176754155

We start off our list of best cottagecore seeds with something pretty unconventional. This Autumn Canyon seed is supposed to emulate the gorgeous earthen color schemes that more often than not accompany autumn. Even though you’re spawned smacked in the middle of Wooded Badlands, there are plenty of ruined portals and ancient cities nearby. Underground, expect to find Lush Caves and Dripstone Caves. Nearest villagers are relatively far and if you’re looking for treasure, it’s even farther but if you want your cottage to have that autumn feeling this is a perfect seed for you.

18. Winter Wonderland

Winter Wonderland

Version: Java Edition 1.19
Biome:  Sparse Snowy Taiga / Frozen Peaks
Seed: -4954627954215292950

Honestly, I picked this seed because of the gorgeous frozen mountain peaks and sparse snowy taiga surrounding them. This cottagecore seed is perfect for players that want to roleplay in an eternal winter atmosphere. Imagine hot chocolate, a warm blanket, and a beautiful view outside.  What more can we ask for? The only downside is that the area is sparsely populated, there are two mineshafts nearby along with an ancient city. For anything else, you will have to descend down to the coast of the frozen ocean.

19. Witch Hut

Witch Hut

Version: Java Edition 1.19
Biome:  Swamp / Plains
Seed: 7789327484291910084

Who says that cottagecore has to be about fairies, you can be a witch as well. This is why I’ve decided to include this small area of a swamp surrounded by plains and mountains. This seed places you on the tiniest swamp ever in the Minecraft world while offering resource-rich plains and mountains nearby. This chunk of land (swamp) is just big enough for you to place a single witch hut in the middle of it, preferably a witch hut that is balanced on top of chicken feet.

20. Woodland Garden

Woodland Garden

Version: Java Edition 1.19
Biome:  Flower Forest
Seed: -7600896488210542653

The last seed on our list of best Minecraft cottagecore seeds is this Woodland Garden Seed. It’s pretty vanilla when compared to the rest of this list but it offers the perfect terrain for budling your cottage. You will spawn in the middle of a flower forest with bees buzzing around hives. It’s a beautiful starting seed and the snowcapped mountains in the distance are a visual plus. It’s a pretty rich area when it comes to resources, there are plenty of mineshafts to explore and two treasure chests two uncover there’s even an ocean ruin to explore when you decide to venture down the ocean.

And that would be all. You have your best cottagecore starting seeds and this list wouldn’t be complete if we didn’t include some of the cottagecore mods.
