English Country Cottage – The Thatch Cottage

Cottages Home Tours

English country cottage is a charming British accommodation in the United Kingdom for a holiday.  I know most of my dear readers are probably not headed to England for a vacation, but something we don’t have here in the states is thatched roof cottages.

This English country cottage featured on The British Traveler is called The Thatch Cottage.  Described as a truly charming English country cottage, cozy, and comfortable and set in a quiet hamlet.  We don’t have hamlets in the states either, we have unincorporated settlements or neighborhoods in a city or village.

After this long winter it’s nice to look at a getaway, even if it’s a cottage across the ocean.

The thatched roof on the cottage is what drew me in.  Low beamed ceilings with an old fireplace has all the markings of a historic cottage, but I find no circa dates.

Rave reviews from customers call it a storybook cottage with a lovely garden to enjoy drinking tea.

English Country Cottage - The Thatch CottageI’ve never seen a thatched roof cottage with my own eyes.  It’s a centuries old craft passed down from generation to generation.

Usually made with wheat straw, reeds, sedges, heather or any locally grown vegetation.

This thatched roof looks impeccable.

The Thatch Cottage hamletThis must be the quiet hamlet.  Details list the English country cottage in South Perherwin, nr. Launceston.

Launceston CastleThe most famous place to see is Launceston, an ancient castle built in ca 1070 that overlooks the town.

Ancient castles are something else we don’t have here in the states, so there is every reason to stay in an English country thatched roof cottage in England if you’ve plans to travel there.

Tremorvah bed and breakfast I can’t leave without sharing this Bed and Breakfast in Cornwall called “Tremorvah” Guesthouse.

Have you ever stayed in a thatched roof cottage?
