Lovely photos, Lauren!
It's a fabulous one!
Nice house, nice name, nice pics!
So very English!Jane x
Unmistakeably English! Beautiful shots of the place.
Then garden adds to the quaintness!
The name, "Hampton Lucy," intrigues me...wonder where that came from? More really fine photos and I can see you had a wonderful day and the whole area looks so green and lush.
These are lovely. Love how those roofs look on those homes.
I always love seeing your "cottages". This is another nice example. :)
So beautiful!Yes, our teams will play next sunday in the Amazon. Let's see what happens... :-)))
have you shown us this one before? that detail on the roof with the birds looks familiar! absolutely gorgeous day!
The thatch looks so immaculate Lauren, such a pretty English village oui! Happy weekend to you both.p.s. Hopefully your relatives will return to sunny Oz one day..
What a lovely home!!!
Another of your oh-so-pretty thatched roof finds.
Thanks for your comments...now to answer questions (hopefully):Lowell - I did Google the name and there are a number of explanations. Possibly all to do with land ownership. It was once called 'Bishop's Hampton' named after the Bishop of Worcester and then Queen Mary gave land to the 'Lucy' family and suspect that is reason for the name change. I'm not a historian but this sounds reasonable explanation. Tanya - Nope this is the first time for this cottage. I know what you mean...I have shown others with the same sort of roof design.Grace - So do I :).
