My last post was about our beautiful thatched houses that are in the United kingdom. I love them but have never stayed in one and I don't know that I would like to live in one either but they are very beautiful to see!!!
We have just come back from a short break in Suffolk and we saw quite a few on our travels.
The one below Bridge Cottage is at Flatford Mill, where John Constable painted his very famous painting "The Haywain", a permanent exhibition is in there to tell the Constable story.
This building above is the Granary and is now available as a B&B.
Another day we went to Oulton Broads and came across this Public Convenience ( Toilet) also thatched
and at the same place the Harbour Masters Office again thatched!!
We had lunch in this area but went onto Somerleyton Hall, a wonderful Hall and gardens. I hope to post on that visit when I have more time!!
We did go on a boat trip on the broads the following day from Wroxham and you will see all the cottages / houses we passed on the way (all thatched).
Just as an add on I will share these few photographs we took on another day when we went to Aldeburgh, this is a holiday let with The Landmark Trust. Would you like to stay in a building like this, a Martello Tower, so close to the sea but with not many windows?
Aldeburgh is a lovely town with fresh fish available on the Quay.

On our way home from Aldeburgh we went to Thorpeness and what a surprise to come across this beautiful
Also a holiday let, see the link in the words!
The History of the house here.
We were very lucky that day that it was really the house in the sky as there were no clouds!!
I certainly wouldn't be fit enough to stay in a building like that with all the stairs etc....but what great views.
