Thatched Cottages

This is just one of the cottages, in the surrounding villages near Tamworth...it is right next to the village pond, and the driveway at the side leads to a little whitewashed "pub" that also used to be thatched , but as now got a traditional roof...the thatchers art is sadly dying out now as they are very expensive to replace and need to be renewed every 10 years or so, but they are lovely and we have several around this area...also a fully thatched Public house still remains...i will put that on my next Blog....the pub does good food and are very reasonable too,...i love it there.


  1. Joy, that is such a lovely house! I love the thatched cottages. It just make you want one! They look so cozy and warm. It is sad that it is a dieing art! We need to get Dee right on that, I'm sure she could pick it up, huh Dee? Oh well, maybe not! I love your pictures!

  2. Why didn't my post post? I did comment! Love the thatched cottages!
