Thatch by mave

Thatch

Our walk today was in Staploe and Duloe. It was mainky on narrow country roads bordered by hedges. We rounded one corner and came across a lovely view across the fields of this beautiful thatched cottage.
It is said that the best way to appreciate a thatched cottage is to live opposite.
What a beautiful thatched cottage - so immaculately maintained , bright and cheerful with its yellow doors . A lovely pov and capture Mave ! fav

I love the ornate strip on the peak of the roof, has it a purpose or is it decorative. It is a very quaint house :)

@beryl Thanks Beryl. The whole house looks so good. I would love to 'live opposite'.

Great shot and a Fav. I grew up in a thatched cottage in Roxton and I also used to cycle around Duloe and Staploe. I must revisit as I don't live that far away - in Willington, Bedfordshire. It might be nice to meet up sometime.

We just got a new roof, thank goodness! Ours was leaking! But this roof is so unique and from a distance looks like felt or boiled wool! It is very cool indeed! They do not have this in the USA. FAV!

@gardenfolk Thank you so much. I do love a thatched cottage!!

@mave Me too! I need to plan a visit to see the UK and Europe! I have not been since 1976 (Germany, Austria, Belgium) because as much as I appreciated it then, I would appreciate it so much more now!
