Thatched Roof Thursday #45 - Robsart Cottage...

... a 15th Century thatched cottage in Kenilworth.


If you like English history, intrigue and mystery
follow the link and read about
Amy Robsart.  This cottage was named after her.


We rented a car for two weeks...first port of call
was to look for a thatched cottage before we started
looking for a new car :).

Thatched Roof Thursday is finally back 
(TV aerials and all).

Love it!

I love this assymetric gem of a thatched house! And that you went looking for thatched treasures before a new car! A photographer at heart:)

Jack said...

Maybe it took a rental car, but you are back on the hunt for thatched houses again. That is how we know you are getting better.

Wasn't there a movie made about Elizabeth and Robert Dudley? Never watched it, though. Didn't even realize that he was married.

I love the monogram and the sign (aside from the fact that it's a thatched roof house, of course).

Petrea Burchard said...

That house is old! And very sweet.

How are you two feeling about driving? Not too spooked, I hope.

Stuart said...

Am I the only one that sees a white shark with a thatched roof ?! Regardless, this is a charming shot of a charming little house.

JM said...

You know I love your thatched roof series but this time I was expecting nothing of the kind. This is so original, what a great find!

Real life stories can so often out do the best fiction!!! From a death sentence to the Queen's favorite...that's quite a story!!!

Love the unique paint job!!!

Lowell said...

I like the thatched roof and the paint job...looks like somebody couldn't paint a straight line! :)

Thanks so much for leaving a little note. Love them all, as ever.

TheChieftess did a rather nice job of summarizing the link.

We are feeling quite a lot better, Jack. Me more so than Mr LOL. He has cracked ribs - leaving him feeling a bit uncomfortable at times. Still, we are here! Thanks for asking Petrea.

Lulu - I had to laugh at my priorities :).

Hilda - I not sure about the movie...but I'm going to have a little look to see if I can find it.

Stuart - Well done :).

Lowell - I have yet to see a thatched cottage with straight lines. But I keep looking!

Well its good to see that you've got your priorities right Lauren :))) Hope you are both fine now, I noticed a few posts back that you'd been to the physio, was that as a result of the accident? Fascinating link.. they certainly were a dastardly lot back then weren't they!

This was my Grandmother's cottage. I used to visit as a child and it has many memories for me! I'm glad to see its still being carefully looked after. Do you live here now?

Philip Johnson said...

Jess Maisey, I think we share a Grandma. Mine, Florence, lived here from 1941 to 1970. I visited her with my mum, her youngest daughter, in 1961. Any way for us to possibly get in touch? Philip

Roger Clarke said...

Hi, my grandmother lived in Robsart cottage until 1970, could we be related??
