Every day, we trawl the web, finding stories about people’s lives through alerts, Twitter feeds, home pages, and stories our readers tell us about. We publish the stories we believe touch on the many aspects of life than can make a difference for others. Find true stories from the web at True Stories on the Web.

We welcome your suggestions for stories to share! Recommend your stories here.


People have always told stories to make sense of their world, to connect with other people, to share the joys and trials of life and to learn from each other. Now, it’s your turn. Travel the road home with us. Share. Read. Connect. 

“I am excessively fond of a cottage; there is always so much comfort, so much elegance about them. And I protest, if I had any money to storiesfromacottagespare, I should buy a little land and build one myself, within a short distance of London, where I might drive myself down at any time, and collect a few friends about me and be happy. I advise everybody who is going to build, to build a cottage.”

Jane Austen, Sense and Sensibility
