In this rich anthology Lydia Greeves and John miller have sought out a range of visual treats from Cornwall to Northumbria, and from East Anglia to Wales. This book showcases actual English Country Cottages, with a few Welsh ones thrown in as well. If you are an architectural buff or simply like looking at photos of houses in the countryside, this one is for you. There are no interior shots of the homes. However, each home is named and placed and tells a bit about its history and/or the era in which it was built. This is the perfect book to read on a long summer day sitting out in the garden.

The Country Cottage - small-scale, harmonious, rooted in the landscape - seems to sum up all that is best about Britain. In this rich anthology Lydia Greeves and John Miller have sought out a range of visual treats from Cornwall to Northumbria, and from East Anglia to Wales.Some are unselfconscious reflections of place, showing how, for centuries, country people used the materials around them to create buildings that seem to grow out of their surroundings. These are the cottages that were built by hand, using vernacular traditions that resulted in the cob and thatch of the West Country, the half-timbering of the Weald and Welsh Borders, and the gabled golden stone of the Cotswolds. Others were built-to-order and architect-designed, forming trim terraces in a hundred estate villages; or set beside a waterway or on a remote coast for lock-keepers, coastguards and lighthouse attendants.Some cottages were built to be lived in, others as eye-catchers, their dripping thatch, ivy-covered walls and leaded gothic windows meant to be seen in a view across the park, or from the comfort of a carriage. And then, as today, there is the cottage as retreat, sought out by writers, artists and others seeking to escape the world.Drawing on a rich range of cottages now owned by the National Trust, Lydia Greeves explores all these themes, while John Miller's evocative photographs capture the unique appeal of what are perhaps Britain's greatest national treasures.

Someone complained that this was just a post card picture book, but I disagree. I'm collecting ideas for my next home, and I was looking for good pictures of the outsides of English cottages. This book was the best for showing the different types of cottages as well as their shapes and construction materials.

This book has great photography. I am a huge fan of England and the towns and villages in the countryside. This has some great photos of wonderful cottages.

I was hoping that a few interiors of the houses would be shown, but there are only exteriors. It's a lovely older book.
