Work, the weather and other commitments have prevented me
getting out and about recently.
So here's a selection of photos taken during the last year or so
showing some of the cottages to be found in the villages
that I've walked or cycled through.
Some are beautifully maintained while others need a little help.
Great photos, just so English.ReplyDelete
Such charming houses! Lovely shots.ReplyDelete
You obviously live in a beautiful part of England!ReplyDelete
Love those English gardens, cottages and homes.ReplyDelete
I'm especially fond of the photo with the blue door.
#'s 2 and 4 inspire me the most, even thought they are all beautiful. Doors always have a special meaning for me. What is behind those doors?ReplyDelete
Love the photos, especially the colourful doors.ReplyDelete
Such cute homes! Nice photo collection.ReplyDelete
Wonderful. Some of them remind me of what it must be like to have decent weather...ReplyDelete
Recently the weather prevents me to go out also. It's snowing almost every day. I am always curious about interesting houses and how people decorate them. I love your pictures and especially the picture of old house and it's door.ReplyDelete
All idyllic, all way too expensive for any potential young rural homeowners...ReplyDelete
We don't see that many places in disrepair on your travels. So they do exist there after all. Big difference between the blue door and yellow door.ReplyDelete
A beautiful series of photos. I love seeing cottages in your neck of the woods.ReplyDelete
Like the sunny days in these photos John - we could do with some of that kind of weather for our garden at the moment.ReplyDelete
Your photos are wonderful. I especially like the one with the yellow door and faded white siding. I like places that are reflective of age. -- barbaraReplyDelete
You have things keeping you from wandering the countryside with your camera? I thought I was the only one. (The house in the next to last photograph needs some roof work soon or a cave-in is in its future.)ReplyDelete
These are absolutely wonderful. The first two are just so inviting...and the one with the yellow door so appeals to me. If I was a painter, I would ask you for permission to paint it, but I am not so I won't be asking...ReplyDelete
Yes, it is that time of year! I have to say, I really appreciated seeing the flowers! Makes me anxious for spring.ReplyDelete
I hope that one day soon I will be back in a cottage like one of these. Loved living in a thatch apart from hearing rats scurry up the walls outside to go to bed :) I think this time I would go for a more finished one rather than a doer upper!! Lovely photos of these charming places.ReplyDelete
I love your door-photos.ReplyDelete
Lovely photos! England's countryside looks so beautiful... and even the cosmos flowers seem bigger than here. :)ReplyDelete
John, I've fixed a mistake from the past. Thanks for sending me back to check Henry VIII's wives, so I think I now have it right in my post on the Tudor Garden at Sudeley Castle.ReplyDelete
A great set of images John! The cottage in the first image would make a super Jigsaw!ReplyDelete
I don't care if they need some help, they are still so lovely cottages.ReplyDelete
Very nice collection. Actually, the cottages that need the most help are the most photogenic to my way of thinking. ;)ReplyDelete
I do love those thatched roof cottages. Long may they remainReplyDelete
Some of those cottages need some tender loving care, and others are charming and show the care they are receiving.ReplyDelete
