This lovely old thatched cottage can be found in Oxwich, south-west Wales. It holds many special memories for me of long, hot summers spent holidaying with my children

The original image was converted to sepia – dust and scratches were added then some original colour was replaced to give the final aged effect

Hi, my name’s Chris. I live in the beautiful county of Monmouthshire.
When I was 10 I was given a Brownie 110 for a school trip – not a single shot came out! But ….. the photography bug was born.
My interests are broad in both subject & style leading to a diverse portfolio – check out My Directory at to see just how varied my style & products are.
I hope you enjoy your visit, my sites have been created with you in mind.

    Just beautiful, so quaint and full of character. Where was this taken? It looks like Devon or Cornwall.

  • It was taken at Oxwich Bay – Wales (near the Gower, if that helps). The family living there are the third generation – they’ve been there a very long time.

  • Yay – that’s great news. This little cottage has belonged to several generations of the same family. I first saw it over twenty years ago and it’s lovely to see that it has remained unaltered.
