Anne Hathaway’s Cottage may be the most famous thatched cottage in the world, but you don’t have to look far to find another thatched roof. There are more thatched roofs in the UK than anywhere else in Europe. Thatchers have been practicing their craft here since people first began gathering in villages – before the middle ages. A good thatched roof not only makes a country cottage picturesque – it is also very long lasting. A roof thatched by a skilled craftsman can last 40 to 50 years without needing refurbishment. These thatch-roofed cottages in England and Wales are among the prettiest I’ve seen.

    Good Luck :) I hope you post a “During” picture as now I’m so curious as to how these thatchings are water-proof.
