Thanks for the replies. This is my favourite cottage in Leicestershire. Its down a very peaceful country lane and is all the more special due to its history.

I agree Kevin with your own comment, as I know this cottage very well. I took a picture of the cottage after it had a replaced new thatched roof last year. It is not that far away from my own abode. I did not know about the history bit! Thank you for your comments on my pictures.

Thanks Jane and you too James. Sorry I did not notice your comment earlier. I meant to go back in summer to see how the garden looked but forgot!
