the property that i’ve teccchnically been trespassing onto for years just sold and i’m desperately wishing that our new neighbours let this baby be and allow me to keep wandering these woods.
Fancy staying in this tiny thatched cottage? Aye or Nay? Love this quirky Grade II listed former toll house in North Somerset, captured by @katya_jackson. Built in the 18th century, this mini marvel has lovely rural views and just down the hill is a local pub serving the finest grog. What more could a Man/Woman/Grog lover ask for? Thatched roof, brick porch and arched door with the Gothic-style windows and charming tudor-ish wood beams. Perfect!
And yes, you really can stay here! Very often the cottages I featured are privately owned with the occupants acting none too chuffed when you try and eat their porridge. I'm actually a little miffed myself - apparently this house went on sale in 2016 for just £110k (around $140,000) which might sound bonkers for only 258sq ft of space - but what a talking point for a house! Plus you're just thirteen miles from beautiful Bath and all this scrumptious countryside in-between.
The house is part of the village of Stanton Drew, famous for its ancient stone circles, including one 370ft in diameter, the second largest in Britain after the one in nearby Avebury. Ancient stones... cosy cottages.. Grog... Sign me up! Lovely shot by @katya_jackson 🇬🇧 Want your Photos of Britain to be featured? Follow and tag this account in the picture! 🇬🇧
