Thatched Roof Thursday #91/92 - Peatling Parva

Parva Cottage and Rose Cottage
Ashby Road


A pair of cottages (Grade II Listed)
built in mid 18th Century.

This style of building (two houses together)
is often seen in modern day houses here in England,  
called 'semi-detached'.  Fun to see an 18th Century version.


I am guessing these are one-bedroom homes. The addition of
a conservatory gives some extra space.
Parva Cottage is on the left and Rose Cottage is on the right.

One bedroom wouldn't do it for me, and I doubt these would weather a hurricane too well, but they sure are cute! :)

They're quite attractive. One bedroom is fine with me, less clutter.

It is a lot more complicated to have two houses on the same plot when thatch is involved. I wonder how they decide that it is time to re-thatch, and what they do if there is a disagreement about it.

They look so well preserved. Thought of you when I was in the Cotswolds last week looking at some thatched cottages.
